“We are a group of independent recent graduates from different backgrounds committed to raising the profile of emerging fashion and increasing international appreciation for Australian design. We run an annual Fashion Photography Exhibition that showcases ten of Australia’s most innovative emerging designers.

In our second year we are amazed and humbled at the talent and innovation shown by emerging fashion designers. The ten for 2010 were chosen on the aesthetics of their garments as well as their response to environmental issues, by a panel of industry judges including Janice Breen Burns, Karen Webster, Joe Saba, Roger Leong and Emer Diviney. The garments showcase a varied landscape of sustainably driven creativity.”
