Great Fashion is Tabu at Designedge
Tabu Swimwear has rapidly acquired a reputation for carrying preeminent collections of Australian swimwear and resort clothing to the Philippines. Being operational for nearly two years now, Tabu Swimwear has expanded their brand inventory to stock 12 unique brands of purely Australian swimwear and assorted clothing.
Established by Amanda Griffin and Isabel Engwa, the first Tabu Swimwear store opened its doors on November 2001 in Greenbelt, Makati City.
Although Tabu is known for it’s swimwear carrying such labels as Tigerlily, Seafolly, Bodypaints, Jets, C*Design and Hallican Boodie, it has enhanced it’s range to carry featured pieces from recognized jewelry and accessories designer Peter Lang. Peter’s items have been featured in prestigious publications such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Elle.
Tabu Swimwear will be coming to Perth, WA to peruse the wares available at Designedge– TCF Australia uncovered, Western Australia’s inaugural textile, clothing footwear and leather exhibition being held at the Burswood Exhibition and Convention Centre, September 23 – 25, 2003.
Tabu is looking to diversify its range by incorporating affordable, chic Australian clothing. They recently began carrying Bonds and have found it to be selling out immediately. Tabu is interested in discovering new clothing brands and other merchandise as well as caring for the current brands they already carry.
Designedge will offer the chance for every player in the Australian textile, clothing, footwear and leather industries to expose their products to leading international and interstate buyers.
The Burswood Convention Centre will be a showcase of innovative products ranging from designer fashion, textiles, footwear, accessories, home wares, textile products and manufacturing opportunities. A unique feature of the designedge trade exhibition will be a complimentary Business Matching service being provided by TCF WA where firms can lodge their area of interest in developing ongoing future business opportunities within the local, state, national and international TCFL industry.
Gloss Media, the organisers of the annual Perth Fashion Festival, are coordinating the expo on behalf of the Textile, Clothing and Footwear Resource Centre of Western Australia (TCF WA), supported by the Department of Industry, Tourism and Resources and the Belmont Business Enterprise Centre Inc.
