Adelaide Fashion Festival announces a third Paolo Sebastian show

Are you kicking yourself because you missed out on tickets to the hottest fashion show of the season? Paolo Sebastian is Adelaide’s biggest fashion name and somehow we still left it too late to grab tickets. We have good news for you though: the Adelaide Fashion Festival has just announced a third show.

Yes, you heard it here first, you still have a chance to see one of our favourite designers showcase his stunning Autumn/Winter 2018 collection, ‘The Nutcracker’. After its unveiling earlier this year , we’ve been dying to see the stunning Russian-inspired collection in real life – and now’s the chance to score yourself a ticket.

“I’m really excited to announce that there will be a third Paolo Sebastian show again at this year’s Adelaide Fashion Festival,” says creative director and designer, Paul Vasileff. “It’s an incredible feeling to know that there is so much support for Paolo Sebastian in South Australia.”

It’s a show not to be missed as the couturier joins forces with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra to showcase the collection inspired by and set to Tchaikovsky’s acclaimed masterpiece.

“We are really excited to show everyone what we have planned for this year’s runway show. The inclusion of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience,” Paul says. And if his past shows are anything to go by, this one will be just as magical and moving.

The festival has switched gears this year, moving the couture show to open the week instead of closing it, as it has done in the past.

“We are so excited to have Paolo Sebastian opening Adelaide Fashion Festival this year – and it’s obvious that everyone else is too,” says AFF creative director, Chris Kontos.  “These three shows will start AFF18 with a bang – it’s going to be unreal, I can’t wait.”

Taking into consideration how quickly the first two shows sold out, you better be get to buying yours now.

The third Paolo Sebastian show will be on Wednesday, October 17 at 8.00pm.
