The Innovators: Meet the next generation of Aussie designers at MBFWA

They’re a talented bunch.

VAMFF is winding down but Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia is fast approaching.

The Fashion Design Studio, Sydney TAFE are showcasing six graduates and we’ve got the deets on these up-and-comers.

The list includes Mat Lee, Jai Saunders, Catherine Conlan, Jack Huang, Onticha Sawasdee and Candi Sanderson.

The six are mentored by Nicholas Huxley, the head of the Fashion Design Studio.

“The 2015 Innovators are a very exciting group indeed,” he said. “Six very diverse talents will showcase forward-thinking menswear, multicultural detailing, gentle and exotic colour palettes and cutting edge silhouettes. They are a delightfully talented group who thrill beyond expectation.”

Previous Innovators include Akira Isogawa, Dion Lee, Nicky Zimmermann, Christopher Esber, Lisa Ho and Michael Lo Sordo.

The stakes are high. Flip through the photos to get a feel of each designer. We’re impressed.
