Mei & Picchi Sponsorships 2016

Oct 13, 2016

This year we have sponsored many amazing fashion exhibitions, store openings and student design showcases.

 

At Mei & Picchi we are not only dedicated to providing inspiring, flexible, quality shopfitting systems and merchandising products to the Australian and New Zealand markets, we are passionate about supporting local and international projects and upcoming and established Melbourne fashion designers, and the design industry.

This year we have sponsored many amazing fashion exhibitions, store openings and student design showcases.

RMIT recently showcased the works of 11 Fashion graduates at Melbourne’s 1000 £ Bend. The event titled ‘Realisation’ featured the students’ unique designs across menswear, womenswear, eveningwear and activewear. Mei & Picchi were proud to be a sponsor of the event, loaning mannequins to display the designs of the students.



Each year at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, RMIT Bachelor of Fashion students are given a theme on which to base a range of unique designs, merging flowers with fashion. Putting aside traditional textiles, students were challenged to create gowns from nature’s gifts, interpreting the theme of Hot House: Danger, Desire, and Delight. Mei & Picchi was proud to sponsor the event, loaning several of our mannequins to display the inspiring and creative floral designs.

A group of young women concerned with the lack of progression of women’s fashion compared to men’s; more importantly the lack of pockets and functionality on women’s clothing. They teamed together and collaborated with Melbourne-based and Australian designers and brands to develop a social movement around pockets; pockets symbolising female empowerment. To raise the issue of gender equality, they created a Pocket Change Pop-Up Store, showcasing fashion pieces from a range of different designers. Mei & Picchi were very excited to be part of the event, sponsoring the exhibition with mannequins.

At Mei & Picchi we are passionate about supporting local design talents. We are excited to be part of many more wonderful exhibitions and fashion events!
