On Saturday 4 March, Sunshine Plaza in collaboration with TAFE Queensland East Coast will launch the Creative Incubator; an interactive pop-up market showcasing the talents of local emerging artists and designers from TAFE Queensland East Coast.
Following on from the success of the Fashion Incubator program, this year the pop-up market is evolving to include more than just fashion, with the addition of photography, ceramics, paintings, drawings and homewares.
On the first weekend of every month, Sunshine Plaza guests will have the opportunity to interact directly with artists, designers and makers whilst browsing original, designer pieces.
Sunshine Plaza Marketing Manager, Kylie Riches said the Creative Incubator provides a wonderful platform for which emerging designers and artists can gain exposure and experience in the retail environment.
"Over the last three years, the Fashion Incubator has been well received by our customers and we are excited to evolve the concept to include a larger variety of one-of-a-kind pieces from the talented students at our local TAFE.
"We look forward to providing a retail space for the students to exhibit and sell their unique pieces. It truly is a great opportunity to support local up and coming talent in the region provides students with," said Ms Riches.
Fashion teacher Amanda Knights said that TAFE's reputation for delivering quality, hands on training and experience is what helps to set their students apart from the rest.
"The Creative Incubator is a wonderful launching pad for our students, offering them the chance to show off their designs and get a taste of the real-world fashion industry. From creating the initial design, to finally selling to customers, this initiative makes for a rewarding opportunity for our students," said Ms Knights.
