Heading out on your own in a competitive industry can be a daunting prospect for any young entrepreneurial creative. But what if the industry gave you a leg up?
The Fashion Exposed DEBUT competition has played a crucial role in supporting Australia’s emerging fashion designers by exposing their range to thousands of potential buyers, key retailers and media.
Melbourne labels Limedrop and Alexi Freeman both launched their debut collections via the design competition and each have gone on to become successful fashion businesses with international appeal.
The year’s Fashion Exposed Melbourne winner, APOM – A Part of Me recently joined forces with the Sydney DEBUT winner, BRKICH at the So:Me pop-up space in South Melbourne, as well as selling their range on The Grand Social.
Introduced in Sydney 2006 and instantly celebrated, Debut has quickly earned its reputation as the prestigious industry entry platform and design competition for new fashion and accessory labels at FASHION EXPOSED.
Anticipating its 15th season and celebrating over 160 labels launching their fashion profile at Debut, including Trimapee, Since Grey, Kuwaii, Donna Sgro, as well as last season’s winners Brkich and Ginny & Jude Designs… Debut is the place to be at FASHION EXPOSED – Australasia’s premier fashion trade event co-located with Bags & Accessories and Australian Shoe.
The focus in Sydney 2013 is on Spring/Summer and applications in the categories apparel and accessories are now welcome.
Applications close Friday 30 November 2012 at 5pm AEST. Don’t miss it!
