LOCAL MILAN NO. 3
The third edition of LOCAL MILAN presented by LOCAL DESIGN features 26 Australian designers and is the largest independent showcase of Australian design in Milan to date.
Pioneering the way forward for Australian design, Emma Elizabeth, founder of LOCAL DESIGN, has single-handedly curated and directed the exhibition to advance awareness and understanding of Australian design amongst a global audience. “It’s hard to describe Australian design as it draws from so many cultures and influences,” says Emma Elizabeth. “The objective of LOCAL MILAN is to present a collective of Australian design that will heighten the global perspective of our Australian aesthetic and style, encouraging and supporting local designers to continue raising the bar.”
LOCAL DESIGN provides a platform, unified voice, marketplace and network for Australian designers. Cross-disciplinary designer Emma Elizabeth founded the LOCAL DESIGN platform in 2015, which includes a website, exhibitions and events that showcase local professionals’ talents with the mission of encouraging people to “think global and buy local.” LOCAL DESIGN connects creative talent and brands, supports Australian designed production and export and actively promotes the growth of the design industry. Emma Elizabeth has a connection to Milan where she studied Scenografia , a fusion course of interior design, industrial design and set design. After graduating from IED in 2006 she established Emma Elizabeth Designs her other practice and takes a cross disciplinary approach to art direction, design, styling and creative conceptualization.
