“The Spirit of the Black Dress is an inaugural event on the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week Schedule.  Emerging fashion and textile designers are asked to submit their interpretation of a contemporary black dress, to be judged by a panel of industry experts.  Ten successful applicants will be chosen to have their garments professionally photographed and displayed in Georges on Collins for the duration of the Festival.  Successful applicants will also gain access to a wide segment of the TCF&L industry including peers, established businesses and media.  The Spirit of the Black Dress aims to give emerging designers an opportunity to gain exposure and synergy to strengthen intra-industry relationships and advance career options”.
