It’s not a secret that the fashion business in Australia is growing at a fast pace. Big cities, such as Sydney and Melbourne, are leading the industry with shops, designers and fashion weeks. However, they aren’t alone. Small cities want their share of the market and they also have a lot to offer to this creative industry.
