We The Makers Design Festival – Designer Showcase GEELONG !

 

A UNESCO City of Design festival, We The Makers is a major new biennial Design Festival from the National Wool Museum in Geelong that showcases the work of makers, designers and artists.

We The Makers Design Festival invites fashion designers, makers and artists to make headwear, neckwear (scarves), bodywear and footwear for the Festival.

Entry is free – with a Designer Showcase highlighting the work of professional and emerging fashion designers, and a Makers Marketplace showcasing established makers, designers and artists to those just starting out.

All participants are to respond to the Festival’s 2020 theme: ‘Design for the Future: Sustainable and Ethical Textiles and Fashion’.

With major cash prizes and professional development opportunities up for grabs – now is the time to start thinking about what you are going to make!

Are you a professional or emerging fashion designer?

The National Wool Museum has just announced a major Designer Showcase as part of We The Makers Design Festival!

This showcase will feature the work of 20 top professional and emerging fashion designers from across Australia and around the world – whose work responds to the We The Makers Festival’s theme:“Design for the Future: Sustainable and Ethical Textiles and Fashion”.

Each entrant is required to enter a “look” (head to toe) that responds to the festival theme – with the “Designer of the Year” set to win a $10,000 AUD cash prize.

Entries will be judged on their ability to design and redefine sustainable and ethical textiles.

All entries must be available to be showcased at the National Wool Museum for the entirety of the We the Makers Design Festival (15 May to 4 October 2020).

The top twenty entries will be selected and invited to take part in the Designer Showcase. No items will be for sale. Designers are responsible for transport of garments to and from the Museum. Using wool is not a requirement of entry.

All designers selected into the Designer Showcase go in the running to win major cash prizes and professional development opportunities – with further details to be announced later in 2019.

Entries open on the 25th November
