ARTSTHREAD is proud to be a media partner to Melbourne Fashion Hub (MFH) - an independent body offering an innovative and free open access program to Melbourne fashion students and recent graduates. This is the first initiative of its kind in Australia.
The recently created Melbourne Fashion Hub is the brainchild of Julia Browne – Founder of Style Shifter Media. Julia identified a gap between education and business for current and recently graduated students. Julia created Melbourne Fashion Hub to address this gap and assist with providing future work opportunities for students.
Melbourne Fashion Hub seeks to nurture entrepreneurship in emerging designers, committed to the process of self-development to ultimately gain a better understanding of their practice and future career pathways.
This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2022, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.
The “I am made for…” opening night on Friday 25th March, will include talks from our practitioners on what environmental, cultural, and social factors influence their practice and process.
This will be followed by a weekend pop-up at Emporium Melbourne running from the 26th to the 27th of March. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the designers one-on-one and purchase their unique works.
