We started off the last day of the program by getting some fabric and I love this photo I got of Clea waiting for me to pay. I think it sums up our week perfectly!
We started off day 4 of the trip by looking at the shops at the Strand Arcade. I especially liked the contemporary jewellery store Courtesy of The Artist
Our Wednesday started with some collaboration time and then we headed to Black Milk. Black Milk is is a Brisbane label with a very different model for marketing and selling, with no shop front all sales are made through social media. The whole process happens at the Black Milk warehouse, from design through to printing, production and distribution happens on site in Brisbane.
We started off Tuesday by visiting the QUT CEA Incubator. The incubator helps early stage fashion start-ups accelerate their business. It was an amazing space and created a community of like minded designers and makers. We need something like this is Canberra!!
