Up close and personal with Pageant.

Monk House Design's workshops are back, this month presenting none other than design duo Kate Reynolds and Amanda Cumming of Melbourne label, Pageant.

Designed and manufactured in Australia using hi-tech Japanese fabrics, Pageant has been delivering unique additions to Australian fashion since 2010. They continue to create a diverse range of styles in men's and womenswear, from club cool to casual mod chic and sports luxe.

The Pageant gals were crowned winners of the Tiffany and Co. National design Award earlier this year, and will be visiting Monk House to discuss what it takes to build and maintain a brand identity.

Monk House Design workshops provide a space where us eager beavers can learn from the designers the store stocks. Past workshops have been run by Ingrid Verner and the team at Kloke. Each designer focuses on a particular area relevant to their work, offering a glimpse into what goes on beneath the surface, before the designs reach the shop floor.
