Travel to China on this exciting fashion sourcing trip with a group of fashion designers and fashion students and be inspired by the abundance of various fabrics, laces, braids, chains, furs, buttons, beads, zips, trims and much more that you will discover.

Take your design sketches and have the tailors make your garment samples for your collection or bring garments or toiles for the tailors to copy. Have garments custom made for you from magazine photos or copied from exisiting garments. Visit various fashion markets to purchase fabrics, trims, accessories and tailors to have garments made at a fraction of the cost of what you would spend in Australia.

We will visit a digital textile printer to see how you can have your own unique fabric designs printed for your garment designs or as scarves, cushions, ties and much more.

If you are looking to launch your fashion label or take your label to the next level, the Australian Institute of Creative Design has teamed up with a manufacturer that can produce small runs from 3 pieces up! This is a fantastic opportunity to get your label started at minimal cost. Bring your designs and samples along to have your next collection produced.

Experience a new country and culture and get an insight to dealing with Chinese suppliers and manufacturers.
