Multicap is proud to present FashionAble, a fashion parade and photographic exhibition over high tea, to give people with disability a once in a lifetime opportunity.

FashionAble’s first event was in 2015, after we recognised the need to celebrate ability and diversity whilst also raising much needed funds and awareness for Multicap. The parade features male and female models of all abilities showcasing ready to wear fashion by some of Queensland’s leading designers. The parade will be compèred by Di Cant, a leading figure in the Australian fashion industry for over 40 years.

For the first time FashionAble is expanding to include a photographic competition and exhibition, ‘Your Life Through A Lens’. People with or without disability will get the chance to showcase their own work with all funds from photographic sales going to Multicap.

The competition will be judged by a panel of world renowned industry professionals with the top 3 finalists from each category printed, framed, exhibited and made available for sale at the FashionAble event.
