Top Tips for fashion and textile export

Just a little update on our Common Threads Project!

As promised, we've pulled together the 'Top Tips' from our knowledgeable presenters following the recent Export Readiness Seminar Series. These are all available for your perusal here, and is a great starting place to get you thinking about your business and how to take it beyond Australian borders to the world.

Also, don't forget the Common Threads Pitch Days are quickly approaching and are open to all Australian Textile, Clothing and Footwear labels interested, who feel they may be ready to explore international markets for their products. The pitch days can be attended, with registration, in either Sydney on Monday 27 July or in Melbourne on Wednesday 29 July. To register, just email us at and let us know which city's Pitch Day you'll be attending.

You can find more explicit information on what to prepare via our Pitch Page and also the Guidelines document.

Successful candidates will be invited to join a delegation of Australian labels on a Capabilities Mission to Hong Kong from Monday 24 to Friday 28 August this year. The mission to Hong Kong will provide valuable opportunities to pitch to media, PR and buyers as well as showcase your products and engage in networking activities with local fashion and textile businesses.

There are some really great opportunities for local labels bundled up in this project. You'll gain valuable experience pitching to a board of trade and industry members, clarify your own business strengths and areas for development, identify potential new markets and more.

We encourage you all to get involved!
