Why, you ask? Well, we decided it was time to uncover some more fashion talent in another region of Australia! Hobart reminds us a bit of Canberra – constantly growing and diversifying, and boasting a thriving design scene. Hobart and Canberra are not big cities, but they are both riddled with modest charm and are home to a creative community of makers and designers.
Our Hobart market was a little different to our regular twilight market in Canberra. We delivered a 2-day event: a twilight evening event and a daytime event. The market was held at the same time as Dark Mofo, which was an incredible time to see Hobart alive and buzzing. The market featured 33 designers from around Tasmania, as well as mainland designers hailing from Cowra, Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne. We were chuffed to feel the dynamic energy at the event, which was packed with live music, roaming masked-models, dancers and even some yummy local food and drink. Keep your eyes peeled for next year – we might just be back for more Tasmania!
