The Young Republic official launch party
Recently we went to the official launch of Young Republic, a unique platform for upcoming and emerging Australian designers. The venue, Sydney’s Aurora bar & lounge, was transformed into a night-market displaying gorgeous jewellery, fashion clothing and interior products. Each designer has a story behind their brand. I really enjoyed having a conversation with gorgeous Toby of TobyE Jewellery, Megan of Soot-ii Hothersall and Marissa of Fiel Sol.
By providing an interactive market space for young local designers Young Republic supports and empowers Australian talent. Co-founder Marianne Sea revealed exclusive plans for the Young Republic to launch into overseas markets in 2011 and expand into the US, South America and the UK in the 3 months following the launch. This will allow emerging Australian designers to receive an exposure not only locally but on international level too.
Champagne, fashion parade, stylish guests and exquisite venue: the launch party of Young Republic was a sensation! Here is their website in case you are a designer and interested in spreading the word about your creations or if you are simply just curious to see more designers’ work.
Special thank you to the Young Republic’s Creative Director Natasha Kershaw for the invite.
