As big supporters of arts and culture on the Coast, we get super excited when an exhibition rolls into town and Coming into Fashion is one that's got us counting down the days.

In addition to these images, a selection of vintage couture from The Darnell Collection - Australia’s largest private collection of fashion from the late 1700s to the 20th century – will be on display.

A curation of seminal fashion films and documentaries will be screening throughout the exhibition season, and over two days of talks and forums, guests will hear international and Australian industry leaders discuss the past, present, and future of the world of fashion.

Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast is a ticketed exhibition on display at Gold Coast City Gallery 25 November, 2017 until 18 February, 2018.

Fashion on Film

Celebrating the Coming into Fashion exhibition, this micro film festival offers a curated selection of the most seminal films and documentaries about fashion.

Our amazingly talented friend, local artist, Tesse Terrell, debuts her first solo exhibition ‘Death Collection’ this Saturday 21st October at Maverick Hair and Art Space in Coolangatta.

Inspired by her lifelong passion for Mexican culture and arts, Terrell draws inspiration from the Mexican Dia de Muertos, commonly known as Day of the Dead, and presents a curated line-up of artists that passed away during 2016 and 2017.

A passionate painter, Terrell’s first solo exhibition expands on her signature style, a combination of painted timber and mixed media, finished in a 3D setting. Each artist is completed in infinite detail and depth, credit to Terrell’s fine style and attention to detail.

Leonard Cohen, Prince and David Bowie are part of the 20-piece collection that celebrates these iconic artists. Terrell’s portrayal of each artist is authentic, light-hearted and voices true respect to the talent they were and represents the impression they’ve made on her as an artist.

 

Tesse Terrell’s Death Collection exhibition runs from 21st October to November 4th.

Each original piece will be available for purchase and we suggested you get along to the event to check out her work.

Connect with Tesse @tesseterrell here.

This is one stall we hope to see at TVM soon!

Designer Profile: Room One Collective

Bringing a little piece of Melbourne to the GC, we chat to Room One Collective's, Arlia Hassell about her creative collective and inspiration for her jewellery brand.

Tell us about how and when your label was created?

Room One Collective came about when Arlia Hassell moved up to the Gold Coast from Melbourne. Arlia suddenly found herself feeling a little homesick not being surrounded by the constant creative juices Melbourne offers up on a platter - so she decided to create her own space that would fill the void.

What pieces are included within your range?

Room One Collective is made up jewellery, ceramics, prints and textiles. Our collection is diverse and eclectic, most of our pieces are one off creations or very limited runs.

What is your creative background?

I attained an Advanced Diploma in Jewellery Engineering in late 2014 and was then approved for the NEIS program, studying all things business. Although I've has had to take some time off jewellery making due to a traumatic brain injury I sustained just after graduating, I've has been able to return to the bench over the last 12 months.

Where is the label designed and made?

All items stocked in Room One Collective are handmade by artists from all corners of Australia. We support local artisans creating their art, generally, from their home studios.

Credit: Scott Powick

What inspires you?

I’m inspired by creating a platform to showcase some Australia’s best creatives. I know how hard it can be for creatives to find a space where they are able to show, and sell, their craft.

In my personal work, I am inspired by ancient techniques. Ways in which jewellery was created all those years ago. I’m also inspired by nature and all the textures that it comes in.

Latest collection consists of?

Our collection is diverse and don’t necessarily follow ‘trends’. Instead, our work is creative and interpretive. Much of our collection is bold and certainly makes a statement.

What’s on your mood board?

You can find anything from antique Egyptian jewellery to 3D printed masterpieces. You’ll find different metal alloys and even a few pops of colour!

What’s your creative space like?

It’s a workbench I inherited off a jewellery friend, tools as far as you can see and a healthy collection of books that inspire my making process. The space is in the garage at home, a space with natural lighting and a few potted plants.

What music do you listen to while designing/creating?

I’m a sucker for 90’s RnB! I put my headphones on and go back in time to create.

A day in the life of you consists of?

Every day is different! We will check over, any overnight orders or enquiries we’ve received on the online store. Spruce up the store and make sure it is customer ready. I’ll spend some time creating jewellery and sometimes a little more time delving deep into the rabbit hole of Pinterest. A piece of jewellery takes more than just a day. Generally, I’m working on multiple projects, in varying degrees of completeness. I could be working on turning a client’s vision into a sketch to finishing off another client’s brand new ring.

Favourite TVM stall (besides yours of course)?

Does the coffee cart count? No, but really, I love the rack sale. You never know what you’ll find, what a treasure chest!

Favourite reads/blogs?

For most part I’ll spend more time on Pinterest and Instagram getting inspiration. I also enjoy reading through the inspiring articles on The Design Files and Design Milk.

What are we likely to find you wearing on market day? Any favourite labels?

I am a bit of a plain jane and tend to wear a lot of black, keeping it low key with maybe a little pop of colour of some fun jewellery from Room One Collective 🙂

What can we expect from the next collection/what are your plans for 2013 and beyond?

Room One Collective is always finding and being approached by uniquely crafted, Australian work. Keeping our store is always fresh and inspiring. We are also working on putting together a beautiful collection of engagement and wedding jewellery.

Then as well as all of the above we are really excited to be ironing out the final details of Studio Sessions. This will be a space offering creative workshops that give back to the community, offering a % of ticket sales to host classes for Acquired Brain Injury survivors.

Why TVM?

I’ve been following TVM for a little while now! What a fantastic platform for Gold Coast creatives to get together and showcase their work.

What do you love most about attending TVM?

The people are friendly and the sun is (mostly) shining! You never know what goodies you might find on the day.

Founded in his Mum's shed in Kingscliff, NSW, we chat to The Sunday Co, designer and founder, Liam Byrne how his love of Sundays fuelled his creative pursuits.

 

Tell us about how and when your label was created?

The Sunday Co. was created in early 2016 after graduating university. Named The Sunday Co. for my enduring love of the day Sunday, a day that I feel most people live for. I also found it was used by many theatre companies as a way to explain, “I’m not really working, just pursuing my passion” Even working on Sunday just feels that much better, the aim is that our products allow you to feel like its Sunday everyday of the week.

First run out of my mum’s shed in Kingscliff across the road from a beachfront market, I spent months trailing new designs and listening to customer’s feedback, starting off with only one style of eyewear and 3 pin designs. My learning from this is just to start doing what you would love to do, don’t wait or you’ll start to think logically without any previous knowledge.

What pieces are included within your range?

We specialise in product design, including handcrafted eyewear & really interesting pins.

What is your creative background?

Using my creative side has always been a way to relax and part of my self-care. Like most I started of drawing down my thoughts as a way to see my imagination, this in recent years has turned into building what I could imagine.

I feel with more of a reflexive way of learning design it takes me a lot longer to complete a project, but I love this time to perfect and learn more. I am my own worse boss in accepting nothing but the best, regardless of timelines or profit.

Where is the label designed and made?

Everything is designed locally here in Australia by the team, and myself then bought to life with the help of others in our production team from Australia, China and Japan.

What inspires you?

Being inspired personally has to have a deeper emotional attachment; otherwise I get bored really easily. For me it’s the pursuit to help people find their purpose and inspiration by working harder, learning more and teaching others.

Experiencing something that you have worked so hard on creates such an amazing feeling of being proud.

Latest collection consists of?

We welcome a larger range of stunning eyewear that is seriously cool, and now optical ready for those who have sight conditions! It’s been a big secret, but after a lot of hard work it’s now available!

Also for our Pin fans, we haven’t even come close to running out of ideas; it is definitely not a boring year for the growing Sunday team.

What's on your mood board?

I have more of a mood media list, a secret list of films, songs, podcasts and books that I love to interchange between depending on my creative mood. To find out more I can tell you in person.

What’s your creative space like?

My creative space is a very multipurpose area with minimal influence, so I am not persuaded by any other designs. I like a space to feel special by adding little items that hint at a moment I shared or a significant memory. It also includes a wine rack a vinyl player and an art and craft section to help unwind.

What music do you listen to while designing/creating?

I believe what your experiencing when designing really absorbs into your work so I like to stay flexible by listening to something that is suitable to the project. Although bands like the Jungle giants, San cisco, Frank ocean or Flight facilities make regular appearances.

A day in the life of you consists of?

I start of a day usually with a fast breakfast and a cycle or a long breakfast with a book. I find both really relaxing in planning out the day and priorities my time, I like to start off with the boring but essential stuff like the emails, then onto the projects I have lined up. Finishing the day with a sauna, cooking a nice meal, a glass of wine and a film.

Favourite TVM stall

Hard to beat Smooth juice for hunger cravings, or the live bands every market are truly amazing. There’s always new stalls that pop up which catch my eye, it’s so good to see the entrepreneurial vision of people.

Favourite reads/blogs?

Books: Zero to One by Peter Theil and The Design of everyday thing by Don Norman
Podcast: How it’s made

What are we likely to find you wearing on market day? Any favourite labels?

I love supporting Aussie brands! Crumpler, Sunny Cords and Blundstone boots are brands I am really passionate about.

What can we expect from the next collection/what are your plans for 2016 and beyond?

Amazing new designs, more places to purchase our range of products and a lot of travelling to meet more of our fans, really excited to visit you all.

Also collaborations with great local companies, designers and Charities are really going make the future extra special.

Why TVM?

TVM has an amazing feel and flow, the TVM team really supports their stalls holders and always respond with understanding and a willingness to help.

What do you love most about attending TVM?

Being in a place full of people thinking differently and having a genuine go at living their passion has always had a way of giving my energy. The customers are so important also as they renew my love for designing every visit ?

Here’s to never being boring!
