OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

FASHION[ing] FORMS : the craft of making exhibition

Tales of a Shipwrecked Jeweller by Helena Bogucki
Telstra Perth Fashion Festival steps off the runway and into Gallery Central with an exhibition of Western Australian fashion objects that is way “beyond garment”, curated by Anne Farren. The exhibition profiles the works of 18 WA practitioners that exemplify the resurgence in appreciation for the finely crafted object of adornment. It sets out to reposition the fashion object by challenging assumptions about the relationships between accessory related forms and the body.

A substantial 65 page publication is available to read on line http://weblity.com.au/fashioning_forms

The exhibition is at Gallery Central from 10 September to 4 October, Monday - Friday 10am - 4.45pm; Saturday 1 - 4pm. There will be floor talks with curator Anne Farren on Fridays 19 and 26 September at 10.15am.
