JUST weeks out from staging Byron Bay's renowned fashion runway show Voyeur, the event has been postponed until March.

The fourth annual show was to be held at the Community Centre over two big days on October 5 and 6.

But organisers said that to grow the event and provide the best coverage for local designers, the decision had been made to move it to March.

"We all need to work collectively to give our designers the most exposure and March is the ideal time in the fashion world as designers will be showing off their new summer collections for 2013/14," Voyeur committee member Amanda Gorr said.

"The Byron show will also coincide with Melbourne Fashion Week, and this gives us a chance to maximise interest in our event.

"We want fashion buyers from Melbourne and Sydney to come to our show."

Ms Gorr said she was not disappointed that the show had been moved.

"We were even considering having one show in October and one in March, but we decided to go for March," she said.

"We believe that by doing this, we are moving forward and growing Voyeur."
