The Great Australian Fashion Show

Conceived in 1987 when John Scriven, a senior lecturer in Fashion Design at the National Art School, Sydney Institute of Technology, took his final year students to present Australia’s first full fashion show in Paris to great success. He was encouraged to continue and since then the Great Fashion Show has travelled to all parts of the globe taking with it a different group of young Australians each year. In January 2010, they have been invited back to Vietnam for three fashion spectaculars during a 14-day visit.

Gracie Matthews, Hon Sec of the Textile Institute of NSW will be the show’s coordinator. The Great Australian Fashion Show is a non-government, no-profit organization, which is self funded by its participating members each year.
If you would like to participate in the 2010 Fashion in Vietnam as a model, fashion designer, singer, dancer, hair stylist, make-up artist, or would just like to accompany this exciting adventure, contact: John Scriven: or Gracie Matthews at
