As part of executing on the mission of AAF, we launched an exciting new initiative – The Gathering Circle.

This initiative gathers women, particularly Asian Australian women together, to share their resources, knowledge and experience in a way that focuses on leadership through giving for the benefit of the wider community.    

It is about harnessing the desire, commitment and passion as women, to make a positive contribution.  It is “Women empowering Women through Giving”.

Our inaugural “Fashion for A Cause” Event

On 25 October 2017, we launched the Gathering Circle with a fabulous “Fashion for a Cause” event. 

Likeminded women (and a few men!) especially from the Asian Australian community who love fashion gathered together in Melbourne to enjoy an evening of entertainment, featuring a fashion parade with edgy designs from up and coming young Australian designers, and bespoke Italian made hats. 

This inaugural “Fashion For A Cause” fundraising event was held at The Gallery, 361 Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne, in a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere.  Guests had fun networking with plenty of canapés and drinks. All the proceeds from the auction items and a further contribution from AAF, went to PANDA - Perinatal Anxiety & Depression Australia.
