The Today Extra presenter is currently on maternity leave after announcing the birth of her second son, Henry, on April 7.

Sylvia and her husband of four years, Sky News anchor Peter Stefanovic, are also parents to a 15-month-old son named Oscar.

After being cancelled last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Afterpay Australian Fashion Week, primarily based at Sydney’s Carriageworks, is the first national fashion show to be held live anywhere in the world for more than a year.

The five-day event coincides with the release of an EY report, from High Fashion to High Vis – detailing the economic contribution of Australia’s fashion and textiles sector.

According to the Australian Fashion Council, which commissioned it, it’s the most comprehensive study of the fashion and textiles industry ever done in Australia.

It found the industry creates $7.2billion in export revenue for Australia, while the industry’s economic impact represents upwards of 1.5 per cent of the national economy.

The study also found the industry employs almost half a million Australians, more than mining and utilities, with women making up 77 per cent of the workforce.

AFC CEO Leila Naja Hibri said the report highlighted the economic strength of the fashion industry.

‘This ground-breaking report highlights the true economic clout of our dynamic and diverse industry,’ she said.

‘Until now, the comprehensive value of the industry’s economic contribution – and its predominantly female workforce – has not been fully recognised.

‘Now we can better understand the impact of this sector’s significant role in Australia’s creative economy, and the substantial potential of its future,.’

The research coincides with Australia Fashion Week, which will showcase more than 70 established and emerging Australian designers and include a tribute on Monday to industry pioneer Carla Zampatti, who died last month.
