Bendigo Fashion Festival, which began in 2007 as Bendigo Fashion Week, is entering its 11th year in 2017. This event is now managed by the volunteer committee of Bendigo Fashion Festival Incorporated. Bendigo Fashion Festival is an annual event with a strong focus on developing Bendigo as the fashion retail centre in the region. While encouraging locals to shop at home, the festival would also like to attract external fashion patrons to visit, stay and spend in Bendigo.
The 2016 Bendigo Fashion Festival is created by Dannielle Downs, Angie Jackman, Erin Griffin & Holly Evans.
