The Australian Fashion Council (AFC) exists to promote the growth of the textile & fashion industry in Australia.
The newly formed AFC, is the result of the 2018 merging of the former Council of Textile & Fashion, and Australian Fashion Chamber, who together share a history of over 65 years service to the industry.
The AFC is a not-for-profit membership organisation, with members drawn from across the fashion and textile industry value chain. From micro to large companies, as well as education, state and national industry associations and students.
The Chamber has a host of activities from guest lecture series for educational institutes to bi-annual business seminars for designers and awards programs.
