Forming part of Sydney Design Festival, The Galeries has partnered with Billy Blue College of Design to showcase three of their most talented design students. Their works will be on display at 124 Shoes, located on Ground Floor. Renowned for their custom design shoes, along with The Galeries, they will be housing the designer’s bespoke collection pieces until 10th March 2019.
On show will be looks from JANE & EMERY, designed by Jakarta-born Jeannie Octaviani who’s known for her experimental approach to textile technology throughout her designs for young women.
Bethany Horan’s brand Beth Mcglynn will also be on display, with a strong focus on her sustainable design solutions. Inspired by the power of the female, her pieces feature oversized silhouettes, empowering the wearer and purposely emphasizing the distortion of the female figure.
Billy Blue’s Jaak Holman will also have his ready-to-wear label JAAX on display. His latest collection ORBIT features unisex pieces inspired by the colours and textures of Jupiter. Throughout the collection, Jaak has incorporated laminated denim fabrics, reflective surfaces and transparent materials.
