THE TURF @ In Support Of
a collaborative showroom concept
The market we encounter is a difficult one so we want to rethink how we do things. Since 2010, we’ve operated as a showroom focusing on the traditional method of obtaining sales for emerging designers. As a reaction to seeing the market shift we feel the need to create an accessible and curated space that gives an opportunity to young designers. This announces our shifted focus from the standard showroom model to a collaborative space.
THE TURF @ In Support Of is a new way of thinking of a showroom – we will now be a curated space for talent to showcase their work to interested parties. We will be a creative and business minded space that fosters meaningful placement between creators and consumers. We will aim to foster growth of young and emerging brands while understanding the burden that this growth entails.
Services Offered: Market space rental, brand strategy and development, wholesale representation, special collaboration and partnerships, space for presentations, press day organization and coordination, sample sale coordination, and more. We want to hear from you, what do you want to do with us?
