Event details

The exhibition is open to the public 12pm – 5pm on 7 August, 9am – 5pm on 8 – 9 August and 9am – 3pm on 10 August.


Inspired by DOVER STREET MARKET by Comme des Garcons, multiple pop-up designer installations transforms the heritage listed location of Curtin St Georges Tce into individually curated spaces, which blur the line between ‘retail’ and ‘art installation’.

We invite you to enjoy the creative expression of independent fashion labels SKYLARK, COR.D and D-TRIBE, discover their latest collections and innovation in garment design.


About Curtin Fashion Incubator Program

The program provides Curtin Fashion Graduates a platform that fully integrates digital innovation in garment production, commerce, and creative development for them to build and grow independent fashion design labels with the focus on redefining garment customisation and personalisation. This initiative is supported by Curtin Fashion Design School and made possible through industry collaboration with D House Australia.


About Curtin St Georges Tce

Located in Perth’s oldest educational landmark, the Old Perth Boys’ School at the heart of Perth CBD. The building is culturally significant, having been home to many prominent organisations, including some of Western Australia’s defining educational institutions. From 1977, the National Trust of Australia (WA) has managed the building on behalf of the community. The limestone walled building was constructed in 1854, designed by Colonial Secretary of WA, William Ayshford Sanford and Clerk of Works Richard Roach Jewell to accommodate Perth Boys’ School.
