Undress Runways was born out of a pop-up runway at a Brisbane car park in 2011. The event strives for sustainability in fashion, diversity on the runway and setting a higher bar for the industry. Since then, Undress has grown into Australia’s leading sustainable fashion runway event worked on by hundreds of people each year. We have showcased over 100 Australian and international sustainable designers, welcomed more than 5,000 guests to our shows and reached 50,000 people each year.

Undress Runways is more than just a runway show.
The curated program makes space for important discussions on sustainability, ethics, diversity and inclusion, the climate crisis and tech innovation.
Undress Runways is thrilled to announce a national tour with traveling to Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane across 2019/2020. Undress Runways is popping up in a warehouse close to you.
