BOX HILL INSTITUTE RESEARCH PROJECT

BOX HILL INSTITUTE RESEARCH PROJECT

During the year, we were lucky to work with several Bachelor of Fashion Merchandising students from Box Hill Institute on an industry research project around the local supply chain. We thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce you to some of them; Annabelle Bailes, Jessica Araujo, Krystal Bouterakos, Tiarn Barrett and Sarah Moran. The research?
