With two more days to go you can still join the Twitter and Instagram conversation using #QUTfashion @CreativeIndust. But if you have missed some of the action here is a catch-up.

The Postgraduate Show is still on display at The Shed; and there are still two more After Darkly shows to come at tonight and tomorrow at 8pm, with tickets still available at Gardens Theatre.

Tonight also features the launch of the latest issue of Frock Paper Scissors magazine at  6pm, and tomorrow is the inaugural #QUTfashionchats video livestream chat with Romance was Born at 6:30pm.

I look forward to sharing this event with cultural critics, industry insiders, mainstream readers, and everyday fashionistas! See you there!
