2023 Next Gen Winners Announced

Congratulations to the four winners of 2023 Net Gen Cameron Hill, Liandra Swim, Ruby Pedder and Xi Wu Studio.

The initiative is part of 2023 Afterpay Australian Fashion Week's Emerging Designer Program and acts as a way to highlight the amazing work of Australia's newest fashion designers.

The winning designers are set to be featured on Friday 19th May at 2pm each with their own runway, an integral part of their journey and a large benefit of the Next Gen winner's prize. The event solidifies their debut on the runway and allows for a fabulous first impression to the public on a global stage.

Natalie Xenita, Vice President-Managing Director of IMG Fashion Events and Properties, Asia-Pacific said “IMG is dedicated to supporting the new guard of Australian talent through our Next Gen program. This year’s winners are shaping the future of Australian fashion by pushing boundaries with their designs and sparking important conversations around sustainability, inclusivity and more. I’m very much looking forward to seeing each of them make their debut on the runway this May at AAFW.”
