The term 'bespoke' might be somewhat overused and diluted by the hipster lexicon, but don't let that put you off. Beyond the cool factor, you'll find a historic resurgence in artisan culture, more economic participation by women, and clothes that might actually fit.
At this special lunchtime Melbourne Conversation for Melbourne Knowledge Week, an expert panel will discuss how bespoke is scaling up – and reinventing manufacturing as a sustainable, peer-to-peer and creative industry.
The panel, MCd by Vanessa Murray, author of the forthcoming book, Made to Last, will be:
- Marcus Westbury, Renew Australia, Collingwood Arts Precinct
- Susannah Bradley, Etsy Australia
- Orion Chibnall, Orion Joel Custom Jewellery.
In partnership with Etsy Australia.
