March 25 -27 March 2022
This event was part of Melbourne Design Week 2022, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.
Featuring students/graduates from Box Hill Institute, Kangan Institute, LCI, RMIT, and Whitehouse Institute of Design, they represent future shifts and innovative thinking within the fashion world, from designing for the metaverse to creating a more responsible and inclusive future.
The “I am made for…” opening night on Friday 25th March included talks from our practitioners on what environmental, cultural, and social factors influence their practice and process.
This was followed by a weekend pop-up at Emporium Melbourne running from the 26th to the 27th of March. Attendees had the opportunity to meet the designers one-on-one and purchase their unique works.

A Little About Our Partners
Melbourne Design Week (MDW) celebrates design in an annual 11-day program of talks, tours, exhibitions, launches, installations, and workshops across Australia’s design capital.
The program champions design by promoting its broad array of disciplines, including communication design, industrial design, service design, gaming, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, urban design, fashion, craft, and functional art. What also unites these disciplines in MDW is a focus on experimentation, innovation, and ideas that enrich the world.
A sublime fusion of design, food, and fashion flows through the architectural veins of Emporium Melbourne. Since opening in 2014, Emporium Melbourne has firmly established itself as the City’s pre-eminent shopping destination, an experience like no other. Word-class in every way, innately Melbourne in the finer details, the Centre marks a dramatic integration of the old and new. Emporium Melbourne is home to quality dining, one of the largest Australian designer precincts, more than 145 international and specialty stores.
