Newcastle Ocean Baths will provide the picturesque backdrop to a Façon magazine fashion event kicking off later this month.

The iconic Newcastle landmark will be transformed into a spectacular runway to rival those of New York, Paris Milan and London.

More than 300 fashion-forward guests will enjoy champagne and canapes before being seated in the bleachers for a sunset show to remember.

Façon editor, Lara Lupish said the event was the perfect opportunity to showcase the city to the rest of the country.

“Without doubt, the Newcastle Ocean Baths is one of the most spectacular locations in Australia and I want to project images of our runway across the country,” she said.

“We are a force to be reckoned with in the fashion industry on a national scale and I want to show off this stunning city.”

Lara added that it had been a long-held dream of hers to hold such an event at the Baths.

“Since I was a kid I have envisaged a runway between the two pools, creating an illusion of models literally walking on water,” she said.

“I can’t think of any other runway event in the world that can create such a dramatic effect.”

One of Australia’s top designers, Camilla, will be presenting her latest season on the runway along with more than 30 models showcasing the latest men’s and women’s summer fashion from Westfield Kotara, Jets, Sass & Bide, Monte & Lou and more.
