As a WA business ourselves, Hunter was proud to be the PR Partner of the 2019 Perth Fashion Festival, bringing our expertise in media, publicity and influencer engagement to promote and position the 2019 Perth Fashion Festival as the leading fashion event in the city. In addition, Hunter was a Presenting Partner of the Industry Forum series, with Managing Director Nic Moody hosting public events exploring the WA fashion industry.



The Hunter team was proud to manage strategic communications, media engagement, pre-festival media and influencer hosting, media accreditation and on-the-ground media management throughout the festival. Strategic media placements were sought to drive ticket sales and event buzz, including a Perth Fashion Festival first: the appointment of three Guest Editors for the Festival.
