MSFW Spotlight Emerging Designer Exhibition


Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW) is on now until September 11. There are a host of parades and exhibitions open to the public to showcase the work of talented designers. Yesterday, I popped into 1000 pound bend (361 Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne) to check out the MSFW Spotlight Emerging Designer Exhibition. I was fortunate enough to bump into the man behind the exhibition and naturally had to photograph his creative chic!

As the Emerging Designer Exhibition creative director, Connell has handpicked a fresh crop of 12 talented designers who are making a name for themselves on the Melbourne fashion scene. If you can’t make it to a fashion show, I highly recommend that you pop down to 1000 pound bend to check out this exhibition sponsored by Spotlight that I think is simply beautiful.

I was lucky enough to get to loiter in the background as Fenella Kernebone interviewed Connell and exhibiting designer, Jack Loder, for an upcoming episode of a show I love, ABC Art Nation.

Jack Loder talking to Fenella Kernebone about his collection of dresses which are made of upcycled materials ranging from feathers from his own pillow to 100 year old lace given to him by his mother!
