In a beautiful Victorian building with ceilings over 4m high, and located on the popular shopping strip of King street, Newtown, acquire@DESIGN comprises of fashion retail, open plan studio, and sewing machine workroom.
For Shoppers, the modern buyer is offered a revolutionary new store. In one place, comes together a carefully curated mix of independent designers, from casual & dressy daywear, to sexy intimates and digitally printed men’s street wear. Each designer has their own ‘handwriting’ and garments and products are produced in limited quantities.
And fashion is not limited to just clothing. We include fashion jewellery, millinery, homewares, and even some artworks. It’s an eclectic mix of product for a diverse mix of people.
For Designers, the acquire@DESIGN project celebrates independent designers and offers retail rental space, patternmaking and sewing workroom with industrial machines & tools for short term use.
Australia has some fabulous talent and our emerging designers need help to showcase their wares and to be able to use a place on a temporary basis to create their prototypes. Internet shopping has increased but there is a growing number of discontented consumers not receiving what they were expecting, eg. incorrect sizing, and poor quality.
With this in mind, acquire@DESIGN has been created for not only the designer but also the shopper.
So, if you’re shopping, it is the perfect place to shop if you are after something a little different.
And if you’re a designer, it’s the perfect fashion hub to get inspired and create amongst the like minded.
So come along and support the local fashion industry.
