When Love St contacted us wanting to launch their latest collection 'Wish You Were Here' at TVM, we were all over it. This banging brand is one of the longest standing at TVM - in fact the lovely Tara was peddling her wares at our first ever TVM back in 2008.

The ladies (and little boho bebe Birdie) strolled TVM pumping 70's tunes, rocking vintage shades and bright floral prints in true Love St style. Check out these snaps by Santography (another TVM fave).

Find Love St at the next TVM, Sunday 1 July 2018 (and most other TVM events).

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!

We chat to Leather Me Baby's Sarah Thomasson about the inspiration for starting her own label as a Mum of three and why she choose TVM as her platform.

Tell us about how and when your label was created?

Leather Me Baby started last November after the birth of my 3rd baby boy. I was looking for a way to combine my entrepreneurial spirit, life as mum of 3 young and active boys and my love of high end leather. My journey started when I was on the hunt for a leather bag to fit my mum lifestyle, as well as my active social life that didn't always involve having my kids. This was the inception of Leather Me Baby.

A buying trip to Bali sourcing material with a friend lead me on a design journey. Prototyping a range of bags and accessories that fit my own personal style, that then translated to a category of products.

What pieces are included within your range?

Leather Me Baby has created a bag that is not just a nappy bag. It's the perfect travel companion on a long or short haul flight or great for an overnight trip. It's versatile so whatever you would like to use it for.

The LMB Nappy Sack fits all your changing needs, or your sunscreens and medicines, or a change of clothes just it case. It also doubles as the perfect size soft leather clutch, great for a date night or girls lunch.

The LMB Nappy Wallet was really designed for anyone who has used a nappy wallet before. They know these things are your best friend. Handy compartments for all your needs - wipes, nappys, creams, bags and even a spot for your phone!

Finally the newest edition to the LMB range is our Bummers. These are the hippest things getting around and the frills on chubby little legs are to die for.

What is your creative background?

Like most creative people I found myself seeking out opportunities throughout my working career that pushed my limits, and increase my interaction with design. However I could never really find something I was truly passionate about. That was until I started to sketch and design my own products. And as they say the rest is history.

Where is the label designed and made?

Designed in my little home office at Palm Beach on the Gold Coast and made in Bali.

What inspires you?

My love of leather and my needs as a mum of 3 little boys.

Latest collection consists of?

The latest addition to our collection is the bummers. We are currently prototyping and collaborating on a number of new an innovative addition for Summer 17/18.

What's on your mood board?

Everything leather for mums and bubs.

What’s your creative space like?

My home is my creative space. I find that our open plan lifestyle and living space inspires me to think functionally, yet still being innovative and remaining true to the essence of the brand.

What music do you listen to while designing/creating?

Just like my design style, my taste in music is also pretty eclectic. So some days I might be listening to some mellow reggae, and then switch in to the diverse landscape that is the current top 100.

A day in the life of you consists of?

A day in the life of me mostly starts with exersice to clear the mind ready for the day then on to mum dutys school and kindy drop off and then a little time for just me and the new bub. Sleep time is everything LMB.

Favourite TVM stall (besides yours of course)?

Sweet Child of Mine is a definate fave for the boys at the moment. And from the vintage collection I do miss Little X & Y.

Favourite reads/blogs?

Single Mum Diaries
The Young Mummy
Frankie

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

Anything leather, linen or my fav label at the moment is Augueste. And of course the mum favourite - a pair of Cons.

What can we expect from the next collection/what are your plans for 2017 beyond?

Our next release is all about style and function, with items mums never knew they couldn’t live without.

Why TVM?

I've just always found that wandering through TVM I feel connected, creatively, to many of the stall. Upon launch we knew that TVM was a perfect for for our brand.

What do you love most about attending TVM?

The chilled atmosphere and a hot coffee offers the perfect escape on a Sunday morning.

We love nothing more than to see our beautiful community of creative entrepreneurs flourish. Here we share a testimonial from one of our biggest success stories to date, Lisa McDonald of Grace Bijoux.

Lisa founded her business here on the Gold Coast in 2012, launching with a stall at TVM and since gone on to achieve a devoted online following including 132K+ Instagram followers, her products have been featured in Sports Illustrated and are worn by key fashion influencers, she has secured worldwide stockists throughout Australia, UK, USA and beyond including online platforms such as Revolve.

"I owe a great deal of my success to TVM!
There really was no better place for me to start out and get my name out there. It is such a beautiful community of insanely talented creatives. The support you receive from not only the customers but from the other stall holders is like no other and it always felt like family to be there with everyone. From day one I felt entirely lifted and inspired by the TVM team, they believed in me and gave me the chance I needed. TVM grew my business in more ways than just selling my products, opportunities came through meeting so many amazing customers and high profile bloggers who appreciated local design. The feedback you gain from the diverse amount of people viewing your designs up close and personal was invaluable. That allowed me to learn what my customers loved and wanted to see more of. I am forever grateful to Marissa and Sarah for giving me a start. And also so grateful for all the creatives I met there who encouraged me with my crazy, out there designs as they are what Grace Bijoux is so known for now!
Thanks TVM, for everything! xxx"

We couldn't be more excited to introduce you to the first TVM Startup Stall recipient for 2017 - Bambita.

From the southern sleepy town of Murwillumbah, Tiffany Bell, founder of Bambita tells us about the inspiration for her label and behind the scenes of running a small business.

Bambita

In a short paragraph, tell us about your background?

Growing up, we lived in a few places from Cabarita to Hervey Bay , but always coastal. My brothers and I would spend after school and weekends in the back rooms of surf shops my mum owned or managed. After finishing high school in Hervey Bay, I moved with the love of my life, to the Gold Coast. I tried to avoid heading back into study, so I took on a marketing traineeship at a tourist attraction and then an apprenticeship with a top salon. Working in a salon where my job was to wear pretty dresses, blow dry 70’s inspired waves and read Russh magazines, I knew I never wanted to work away from a creative industry again.

After the arrival of my first born and inspiration behind Bambita, Ivy, I headed back to study a Bachelor of Communication by correspondence with the intention to always work for myself and never for the man. It gave me the confidence and inspiration to take a leap and put myself out there.

After following my partner through a few mining towns in country New South Wales for a few years, we’ve finally set up permanent residency in the Northern Rivers. After being away from the ocean and the green countryside for so long, we have a new found appreciation for god’s country.

What made your pursue your creative passion?

Being the vintage, crochet and floral dress addict that I am, I was always looking for cute mini me things to put Ivy in. I found that there was way too many glitter encrusted and mass produced fabrics so I went out on a limb, had some patterns and samples made, got such an overwhelming, positive response and evolved from there.

When did you take the plunge and start your own business?

After many set backs, including another little headstrong female to the mix, Bambita finally opened in September of this year.

What does your brand consist of?

Bambita consists of 70’s inspired smock dresses, bell bottoms and pinafores in the softest of indian panel prints specifically made for little girls sizes 1 – 10.

Where is the label designed and made?

Designed in the Northern Rivers and hand made by Sue on the Gold Coast.

What inspires you?

I’m a huge collector of vintage dresses, specifically the 60’s and 70’s. I love the idea of recreating pieces, which are modern enough to wear for kids these days and could be kept for generations.

What are your plans for the brand and where do you hope it takes you?

2017, I’m hoping to gain a few more stockists to spread the Bambita love across the country. Overall, I would love to have a storefront, that’s the ultimate dream.

Bambita

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?

I import all the fabric, because I find the indian cotton is magical. Not having fabric available onshore and underestimating the popularity some items would have has definitely been challenging. A few parcels are still lost in transit.

What is the best thing about having your own business?

1. Having 100% control over the creative process.
2. I can go from packing orders and negotiating with suppliers to jumping on trampolines and eating iceblocks in an hour flat.

One piece of advice for someone hoping to start their own small business that you wish you’d been told?

I think everyone has the potential to have a small business, but the people you see putting themselves out there are the ones with the guts to follow their dreams. Life really is too short to do something you hate.

Find Bambita debuting at TVM this Sunday 1st January 2017.

If you've started a small business within the last three months and are interested in joining TVM, apply for the TVM Startup Stall - We'd love to hear from you!

Welcome to the TVM fam, Beau In The Woods. We got chatting to founder Kylie Dadson about hair flips, her special TVM pieces for the local gals and how her creative baby came to be....

Beau Campaign 2016

Tell us about how and when Beau In The Woods was created?

Beau was created to offer our customers something different for our more tropical-esque Queensland environment. I love that feeling like you are always on holiday. We started in 2012 with digital prints created from travel snaps, took a sabbatical from mid 2014 (bought a house, had a baby!) and are now re-launching with organic cottons. The cotton is organically grown in India, woven in Australia by a Gold Coast company and we manufacture in Brisbane. It’s about keeping things close to home, so everything is ethically produced and most of all, super wearable for our lifestyle.

What pieces are included within your range?

We have frocks, jumpsuits, shorts, pants, tops and capes. We love a good frolic and hair flip.
Cotton pieces are cut with raw edges, as we wanted the simple beauty of the natural cotton to shine through and naturally curl on arms and hems. We also have a made to order silk collection that is beautifully finished with French seams but with a resort vibe – think shell buttons on flowing styles.

At TVM we will feature silk print pieces not available online, cut especially as a mix up for our local gals. Our style is just life… Basically you can eat, drink and go about your day (or eve!) in our pieces. They are designed to be worn day or night and packed easily to travel with, its up to you to create your look and make it your own.

What is your creative background?

I studied journalism at uni, worked part time in a photography lab then fell into retail post study. Started a wholesale fashion agency for emerging designers, this turned into our first boutique and Beau was just developed along the lines from there. A turning point was probably a trip to Vietnam about 10 years ago. My obsession with fabric developed greatly from there and has grown over the years from heavy embellishments to light silks and now super soft cottons …

My husband and I decided early on to teach ourselves the trade over studying it. There have been wins and there have been losses. We immersed ourselves in it for so many years, I used annual leave time from my full time jobs to pursue trade shows and trips to sell ranges and meet with buyers. I think when you love a particular industry so much it’s really hard to get out of it!

Where is the label designed and made?

Brisbane. I am ridiculously passionate about supporting local industry and have been working with my team (patternmaker, machinist, manufacturer) for about 4 years now and couldn’t do the label without them. Lately I have been doing business meetings out of my car so the baby can still sleep and not get disturbed as we chat out side about samples and finishes– seriously where else could you work like that?

What inspires you?

People in my life, imagery, imperfections, anything that consists of blues skies and blue waters. You can find inspiration in so many places and as you get go through different ages the way you view fashion changes. Where as once it was perhaps about what is “in “now, it’s definitely more about what your personal style is. I love that fashion has evolved that way. I think the trick is to see the beauty in your every day. Oh and my 9 year old niece wants to be a fashion designer – she tells her friends how much work is involved so I need to perform well to encourage her!

What's on your mood board?

I tend to collect beach scenes, Palm Springs palms, vintage monochrome images and inspiring quotes. I love the classic black and white images of styles bygone. Fashion always re-invents so trends are mostly technology developments of fabrications, styles often keep their classic shapes. I also have some art prints by friends – currently some hand painted flamingos by Byron artist Kristel Warton. She inspires me always with her mash up of colours. We often trade instagram tags back and forth.

What’s your creative space like?

Currently under renovation! My husband is part way through building me a studio at home. Once complete it will be all white with a big trestle table, high ceilings, an oversize mood board … and of course, a bar cart! I love a good blank canvas that you can cover in colour and print.

What music do you listen to while designing/creating?

I have Ku De Ta’s mash up cd on repeat constantly. Its like tropical lounge beats. We were married in Bali 5 years ago and it reminds me of being there with everyone I love + cocktails! Plus my son sleeps to it. The Delta Riggs is another fav.

A day in the life of you consists of?

Early morning wake up with (our son) Franco. His smiles completely kick off my day. Gym time or a big walk is a must, then I balance working in between his naps/play. I do a lot of computer work with the website & blogging, appointments for sampling and new patterns during the day, then after everyone is fed (my husband and I always dine together) and then I can slot a little more in! I keep alot of notes in my iPhone – its constantly going off with little to-do list reminders!

Favourite reads/blogs?

I love a little celeb gossip. (I don’t read, just look at the pics for outfits!) I have the Mail Online app on my phone for a quick fix and then my personal inbox is mostly fashion and business related. I love reading updates about the industry through Ragtrader, The Business of Fashion and Smart Company. The Weekend Edition and The Good Guide are my go-to‘s for finding out what’s new in Brisbane and the GC.

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

You’ll find me in head to toe Beau. Most days I wear a silk and cotton combo. I love the feel of luxe with a good basic. (Though my son has me putting the silks away for the time being!)

What are your plans for 2016 and beyond?

I am just going to take it as it comes. My biggest priority is my family – my husband and our babe. I really want Beau to work in with our lifestyle and goals. I hope to see it grow organically and be worn by a growing number of fabulous women.

Why TVM?

It’s such an amazing concept and run so well. I have loved coming down and think it has a great range of brands made so accessible in such an enjoyable environment. I mean hello, it’s across the road from the beach. Retailing doesn’t get any better than that! Xx

We were recently invited to attend the launch of the new collection by Violet Gray, My Internal Compass.

We have a strong connection with this beautiful brand, as we have been a part of their journey from the very beginning, in the form of their very first stall at TVM a few years ago. We have watched this brand grow and couldn't be more proud, so it was such an honour to be invited out to the family property of VG directors, Alex and Fran for this very special evening.

We were joined by 25 other likeminded women, some we knew, some we didn't but each woman had a kind, warm spirit and an interesting story to tell. It was such a pleasure to share this experience with each and every one of them.

We wanted to share some images of this magical evening by the very talented Klee Photography and you can checkout the full album over at Violet Gray.

As a market focused on providing a platform for talented local creatives to showcase their wares and expand their brands, we are really excited to profile local designer, Sinead James.

Sinead James The Label is proudly 100% Australian made and is definitely one to keep an eye on, this girl isn't just creative, she's got the smarts to go with it.

Tell us about how and when your label was created?

In early 2012 after the completion of my studies I finally made my dreams a reality and began Sinead James The Label.

I always knew I was going to create a fashion label since I was a kid. It was all about equipping myself with the right tools before rushing into it. I made sure I completed university and then fashion school so I had some idea of where to start.

What pieces are included within your range?

Our current collection ‘Reflections’ features luxurious fabrics with a strong in-house designed geometric print, complimented with a bold, bright colour palette. The collection is made up from contemporary, yet feminine pieces that can be dressed up or down. The collection also incorporates beachside glamour that can be worn day to night. The range includes kaftans, swing dresses, structured dresses, quirky shorts, skirts & playsuits, as well as some comfy harem & wide leg pants.

Where is the label designed and made?

What inspires you?

Everything! It’s hard to pin point. I am inspired by bloggers, travel, colours, fabrics & street style. I always have my iphone ready to snap anything that draws my attention, my phone memory is filled with random photos of objects, people and clothing.

Your latest collection consists of?

Our latest collection ‘Panthera’ which drops in August combines modern sporty luxe with wearable femininity, stemmed from flattering shapes and timeless cuts. With clean lines, exposed zippers and striking silhouettes PANTHERA is the strongest Sinead James collection yet. The use of Italian bonded lycra, sports mesh, and silky polyesters will leave the wearer feeling lavish.  The colour palette is a sharp monochrome with a bold hit of fuchsia. Our in-house designed snow leopard print stays true to our quirky and youthful charm while upholding a sophisticated chic feel.

What's on your mood board?

Winter 2015. Knits, coats, structured pants & cropped hoodies and a splash of denim.

What’s your creative space like?

Currently a mess!

What music do you listen to while designing/creating?

I just set my iPhone to shuffle and let it do the job.

A day in the life of you consists of?

No day is ever the same. I could be spending the day designing. The next day I’ll packing orders, running back and forth to the post office whilst posting on all my social media outlets. I could be dealing with wholesale orders, getting ready for production and preparing for a fashion show. It’s never ending.
