Following the success of it’s maiden offering, The Sherman Centre for Culture and Ideas (SCCI) will again host it’s annual Fashion Hub, with a series of dedicated events scheduled for April of this year.

Featuring 40+  seminars, interactive workshops and tailored children’s offerings, this year’s program will explore the myriad ideas shaping fashion’s continued evolution, culminating a lineup of industry leaders, international headliners and respected keynote speakers from across the realms of fashion, photography and art respectively.

This year’s headliners span an impressive four continents and an array of mediums and concentrations; each speaker investigating the transformative nature of fashion across both geographical and ideological borders.

Key speakers for 2019 include Angelica Cheung (Editor-In-Chief of Vogue China), William Ewing (prominent curator of photography and writer), Dr Toby Slade (Professor of fashion and Japanese popular culture at the University of Tokyo), Sharon Tal (Head Designer, Maskit, and former Head Designer, Embroidery, McQueen), Bandana Tewari (TV presenter and columnist at Business of Fashion (BoF), former Editor-In-Chief, Vogue India).

“SCCI Fashion Hub 2019 aims to deepen and expand upon the previously explored fashion thématique, as well as introducing new fields of inquiry,” SCCI Founder and Executive Director, Dr Gene Sherman AM commented.

“In the 2019 iteration, additional historical periods will be explored. Geographical spread will be amplified. We look forward to bringing to the attention of a broad and specialised public, the most expansive views – both positive and negative – on fashion in its evolving complexity.”

Launched in 2018, SCII’s Hub series includes both the annual Fashion and Architecture programs, the former of which was developed to elevate fashion as prominent art form and subject for critical analysis; bringing a host of contemporary ideas and voices to the forefront across a a ten-day period.
Kicking off Friday April 5th, the full program can be accessed via the SCCI website. While the majority of events are free, event-goers are required to secure their place via the website’s booking portal.
