Up and coming designers show off their style on catwalk

THE region's biggest amateur fashion event is on again, and set to stun with spectacular designs.

The Calliope Catwalk Fashion Design Awards 2013 is on this Saturday, August 3, at Calliope State School hall.

The gala event aims to provide amateur designers with the opportunity to explore their creativity and provide a stepping stone into the fashion industry.

Proceedings kick off at 2pm, and tickets are $40, which includes afternoon nibbles and entertainment.

Creative types are invited to book a table and decorate it, with the theme "fire and ice".

The day's entertainment includes a licensed bar.

Tickets are still available at Limestone Clothing, Calliope and Fantasy Rags, Gladstone.

The Gladstone Observer is a sponsor of this popular annual event, which comes just a week ahead of the very fashionable Gladstone Cup Day.
