City of Gold Coast Emerging Designers

Emerging designers goes swimmingly.

 

A development program for local designers is paying off, with 10 young designers now getting ready to showcase their creations at the Gold Coast Swim Fashion Festival late next month. 

The Festival is helping to establish the Gold Coast as a creative, educational and performance hub for swim and resort fashion in Asia.

Supported by the City of the Gold Coast, the Emerging Designers Program provides for a series of mentoring and development workshops. 

Deputy Mayor Donna Gates said the City’s support for the program related to some of the aims of the Economic Development Strategy.

“These aims are about developing competitive business environments, creating a thriving cultural economy that attracts talent and investment, and a highly skilled workforce that meets the needs of business and industry,” she said. 

“I’m most impressed by the creativity that’s clearly evident among the local designers selected for the program and I wish them every success in their careers.”     

The workshops start this month and include seminars on marketing internationally, managing budgets, planning for growth and the pitfalls of productions.
