Calling the Next Generation of Australian Designers
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia has released its official event dates for the Resort 2020 Collections and once again welcomed the return of the St.George NextGen program.
Taking place from 12-17 May next year at Carriageworks in Sydney, the MBFWA showcase will include collections from Australia’s prominent designers as well as featuring a program to spotlight emerging talent.With the aim of supporting and mentoring emerging designers, the St.George NextGen program enlists a panel of industry experts to select four talented creatives to debut their collections to a global audience of media and buyers during MBFWA 2019.
Selected designers will also receive direct mentoring, networking opportunities, and world-class marketing and publicity support to expose their designs to a wider audience. This is the program that helped discover and launch the careers of Gorman, Sass and Bide, Akira and Camilla and Marc – so emerging designers, it’s time to get your applications together!
