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.
