#LMFF What's the Industry Verdict?

During Melbourne Fashion Week, I always look forward to the forums - the fashion and the glamour is wonderful, but its the business side of the rag trade that is most complex to me. Last week Colonial First State and The Melbourne Review presented the LMFF Industry Forum: Whats the Industry Verdict? Hosted by the flame haired Glynis Traill-Nash, guest speakers were strategically placed in the audience to encourage open discussion, and included some of favourites: The talented designer Megan Park, Arthur Galan, Clea Garrick (Limedrop) were amongst the industry proffessionals. The subjects was broad and it was difficult to grasp the scope in such a short hour, but non the less, I went away with some gems of info, and I am more excited than ever to be a designer in Australia.

We've had our fair share of disagreements, but we always come together with a shared vision of creating nourishing, Ayurvedic-inspired dishes that are accessible to everyone. I've learned so much from them, not just about food but about business, marketing, and communication. The learning curve has been steep, but it's been worth it. I've learned the importance of patience and perseverance, and how to adapt to changing market trends and consumer preferences. Most importantly, I've red

RADA CAMPBELL - MOTHER & ENTREPRENEUR,  SATVIK FOODS.  TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF- WHO YOU ARE, AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I am a mother, creative and entrepreneur. I was born into the Hare Krishna religion in Northern NSW and spent most of my childhood running wild with my 8 siblings. Growing up, I was deeply influenced by stories and traditions of the varied spiritual doctrines my eccentric mother subscribed to. This left me with a rich curiosity, and audaciousness to seek out the world for myself.
