AFC CURATED UPDATES
We're Back to Sydney this May!
This May 3rd-30th, AFC Curated returns to Sydney with a pop-up retail space at The Strand Arcade. The month long activation will see a weekly rotation of Australia’s independent designers, for a curated collection of local fashion!
Meet the labels, connect with their stories and of course, shop their incredible ranges. Take your time, say hello, and get to know the future of Australian fashion!
SEE YOU AT THE STRAND ARCADE
Vicinity Centers have been an integral partner in bringing the AFC Curated program to life since 2017. The national partnership was officially launched at Emporium Melbourne earlier this year, and we look forward to working with them to foster the growth of these emerging labels and their journey into the Australian retail landscape. We’re delighted to be retailing this May at their iconic heritage site, The Strand Arcade.
“The Strand Arcade has, for more than 120 years, been supporting local fashion and design, which is why we’re thrilled to be able to connect our customers with some of Australia’s best emerging designers and craftspeople as part of AFC Curated. We know, as fashion evolves and trends change, our customers will look to The Strand Arcade for the latest experiences and artisans, and we see a unique opportunity to elevate local labels as part of the AFC Curated series.”
Kristy Hoare, Centre Manager, The Strand Arcade
JUST THE BEGINNING FOR SYDNEY
We’re thrilled to also have our pop-up and broader program in Sydney now supported through the City of Sydney’s Knowledge Exchange Sponsorship, which will act to create more skilled and connected business owners and to see vacant spaces throughout the city revitalised. Watch this space!
