Join the Australian Fashion Council at the AFC Curated pop-up store to hear from a panel of designers and makers who are building their brands with a focus on sustainable practice.
A broad term with complex implications for our industry, we’ll be diving in to what ‘sustainability’ means for these labels and how it is driving their business and design practice.
Hear their stories, their challenges and how they are positioning their labels to create a positive impact on the industry.
Facilitated by Eloise Bishop, Head of Sustainability at Country Road Group & David Jones

There will be an opportunity for Q&A followed by networking drinks and the chance to meet with the designers and have a look through their collections up close.
During VAMFF this year, you’ll find a curated collection of Australian fashion labels from across the country at Emporium Melbourne as part of AFC Curated. A unique opportunity to get behind local businesses, meet the designers in person and shop their incredible ranges.
AFC Curated is a pop-up retail space and broader business development program built to support Australia’s emerging and independent fashion labels.
This event is brought to you by the Australian Fashion Council and presented by Vicinity Centres, and proudly promoted by Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival as part of the Independent Program.
