Australian Fashion Council

Upcoming merger with the Australian Fashion Chamber In a sign that Australia’s fashion and textile community is united and working collaboratively, the two premier industry bodies, the Australian Fashion Chamber (AFC) and the Council for Textile and Fashion (CTF), on Wednesday 18th October 2017, announced their intention to merge.

It is intended that the new ‘Australian Fashion Council’ will represent all of the textile and fashion industry in Australia, including emerging and established designers, fashion retailers, manufacturers, uniform providers, education, state and national industry associations and students.

The driving rationale for the organisations coming together is to operate a stronger and more influential body that is aligned around helping all parts of the industry ecosystem grow.
