Sydney based fashion designer, Bowie Wong, will fly into Adelaide on Friday 20 August to support Lord Mayor candidate, Clr Francis Wong, and to present his BOWIE Cashmere collection.
As a renowned advocate for South Australia and prominent businessman, Francis says he is keen to support the progress and sustainability of the shopping and fashion industry and businesses in the state.
“Adelaide is a beautiful city with beautiful people who want more access to fashion and shopping opportunities,” says Francis.
“Having a successful Australian fashion designer make time to fly into Adelaide is a sign that our city is a viable market for their products.
“There are passionate people in our state who want to revitalize and the fashion experience in Adelaide – this would be great for locals, interstate and overseas tourists.
“Adelaide is a state with many national and international events which can support a greater shopping experience.”
Bowie Wong has yet to officially launch a collection from his label, BOWIE, in Adelaide. As part of Mr Wong’s Lord Mayor campaign, Bowie will show his support for Francis by personally launching BOWIE Cashmere in the city.
A save-the-date invitation is enclosed for Friday 20 August from 12.30 to 2.00pm. Final invitation with venue will be sent upon registration.
Mr Wong announced his intention to become Adelaide’s next Lord Mayor in February this year.
