On the evening of Friday 25 November, RaVenClan made its’ debut runway appearance at the the INFINITY FASHION RUNWAY COMPETITION. Being held at the Infinity Centre in Brisbane, the fashion extravaganza was hosted by Miss India Australia & Miss Global India.

Ms Craft is who is one of the two Patrons of RizeUp, a community-driven organisation focused on raising awareness and providing tangible resources for adults and children who’ve fled from violent homes. As well as raising awareness through speaking engagements, RizeUp liaises with specialist domestic and family violence specialist organisations to provide resources to create new homes, and supply provisions for the well being of children and other family members fleeing violent homes.
“We are really excited to be associated with positive community action such as RizeUp as we note the perils of family violence in Australia” said the label’s designer, Sanesh Prasad. “Unfortunately too many families and children grow up witnessing terrible events in their family home”. Prasad is of the view that parents inadequate approach to dealing with ‘anger’ is a contributing factor to the violence and family breakdown. .
After learning about the fashion show through social media, Prasad seized the opportunity. Garments from RaVenClan’s Spring Collection was showcased on a platform that is not only supporting emerging artists, but donating funds to an organisation that targets a social issues the designer is passionate about.
“We want the audience to walk away with the impression of RaVenClan's ability to blur the boundaries of Corporate, Hipster & Urban”. This was Prasad’s vision for the audience when he submitted four garments required for consideration for the Show. As has been RaVenClan’s message since launch in April 2016, the menswear range seeks “to be the answer for those seeking to express themselves through fashion that is cool but chic”.
RaVenClan was thrilled to be selected from 80 entries to become one of the 8 finalists. Also, to be involved with such a fantastic event that helped raise funds for the creation of positive impacts for an issue affecting many Australian families and communities.- END
