Following knockout events in Sydney and Brisbane, Finders Keepers closes its Autumn/Winter tour in Melbourne this month. Taking place at the magnificent Royal Exhibition Building over three days, the event will bring together over 260 independent artists and designers from across Australia.
The Finders Keepers Melbourne event is the most highly anticipated on their calendar, with a more concentrated fashion focus, and a wealth of incredible local labels involved. We’re especially inspired to see so much on offer in the sustainable fashion category, with brands like Good Sport Australia using salvaged, pre-loved kimonos to make their contemporary threads, as well as ethical prints and textiles made from recycled materials by Solomon Street. A Finders Keepers favourite, Magpie Goose will make her Melbourne event debut after receiving the Finders Keepers Artist Program accolade this year. The social enterprise showcases beautiful hand screen-printed fabric designed and printed in remote Aboriginal communities.
Extending trade hours on the Friday sees Finders Keepers open from 12-9pm, allowing PLENTY of time to peruse!
