Melbourne AW12 Markets wrap up post!

Thank you Melbourne for another fantastic weekend! It has taken us a while to rest and recover from such a large event. We were thrilled with our new location at the Royal Exhibition Building, and were truly overwhelmed with the amount of people that turned up!!! The markets hosted over 140 designers & artists, and included great live music, yummy food and drinks.

    I applied for the april market and did not make the cut. I went along to the market and was very impressed with the quality and creativity of the stall holders. There was a great variety of products and I was very excited with the few things I purchased. The market also inspired me to up my game with my own jewellery product and stall set up. look out for my oct market application, ill have my fingers crossed i make the cut this time. keep up the awesome work. erin.k
