Guest Profile | Patrick Mackenzie

Meet Patrick Mackenzie…

We first come to know Patrick when volunteering at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival in August and ran into him again when working at the Moda Creative Fashion Wrap Weekend Party backstage.

Moda Fashion Wrap Party - Part 1 - 106-2

Name: Patrick Mackenzie

Age: 18

Occupation: Fashion Student at MSIT

Role at MBFF: Front/back of house volunteer crew

Why did you decide to volunteer? I decided to volunteer for MBFF to gain experience in a fast paced environment while getting the opportunity to network with some of Brisbane’s high end fashion designers / models.

The best thing about volunteering is… I have gained an invaluable insight into the real world of fashion. Volunteering for MBFF was both exciting and only re-enforces my commitment and passion for this industry.

In future I would like to… Design and produce my own label. To me, fashion is the ultimate artistic expression of individual style; it is a way of representing your inner and outer self. I am very passionate about this expressive art form and have been since an early age.

I plan to get there by…. Continuing to study and acquire knowledge of this industry. I am currently gaining experience though internships with well-known Brisbane based labels. Through this work I am establishing a network within the local fashion industry which will help me develop a platform for running my own business in the future.

We wish Patrick all the best of luck in the future and have no doubts we will run into him again dedicating his time to the industry.
