From the event yesterday morning, Westfield's designer support will be rolled out in three key stages and essentially entails the following:

1. Financial support – designer sponsorship for MBFWA will be offered to DION LEE, WE ARE HANDSOME & ROMANCE WAS BORN.

These designers will also feature in two in-centre installations in Westfield Sydney and Westfield Bondi Junction for the two weeks surrounding MBFWA. 

2. Retail support – InHabit – a dedicated program in Westfield Doncaster in Victoria within a bespoke retail space from August 2014.

This innovative retail space will allow short residencies in a store outlet for a number of Australian fashion design luminaries.  

3. Designer mentorship program – more information on this to be released later this year.
