The country’s only boutique event for buyers, Life Instyle’s strong focus on creative excellence and innovative design guarantees a showcase of emerging trends, brands and products that are, stylish, and original many of which are locally made.
Operating with a strong commitment to creativity, Life Instyle has become a destination for design-focused buyers and an invaluable business opportunity for designers, makers, sellers, and importers across a range of categories.
With the Melbourne event being almost sold out two months leading up to it, it proves without a doubt that the event’s popularity and relevance is as strong as ever.
This year’s event is looking to be one of the best yet for anyone looking to be on the edgier side of retail. Demand for design-lead products continues to grow across homewares giftware and kids products, and as the combined giftware and homeware sectors reaches a value of $6.6bn, Life Instyle remains the most relevant event for boutique retail traders – regardless of at what stage their business is at.
Even those new to the market are supported by the event with First Instyle, a curated space providing an opportunity for up and coming designers of home, lifestyle, kids or baby products who are looking to launch and make a name for themselves.
And with recent research showing that over 1.6 million Australians buy homewares in an average four weeks, spending nearly $133 million between them, being ahead of the trend to deliver what customers want is more important than ever for retailers.
Taking place at the fittingly beautiful and elegant Royal Exhibition Building, the event operates with a focus on driving business for those in attendance, with a visitor base that is traditionally made up of retailers, interior designers, and stylists. Encompassing Kids Instyle, First Instyle and Conversation Series to help attendees with all aspects of businesses, the show floor is a hive of activity across the 4 days.
