Awards FAQs

Got questions?

What is the dress code for on the night?
It’s time to get dapper, snazzy and glitzy. This is a ‘Black tie’ event so it’s time dust off the tux and slip into a beautiful gown. We’re encouraging attendees to consider fashion sharing through upcycling, recycling, turning to second hand, renting or finding something vintage.
