Rachel Burke — the artist, designer, crafter and magical rainbow chameleon behind i make. you wear it — will pop up at Fortitude Valley Markets throughout September.
The talented Brisbane local made a name for herself with i make. you wear it, the ambitious project that saw her design and make one new dress every day for a year.
The self-taught dynamo also works as a womanswear designer for Universal Stores, and served as the Craft Captain at this year’s Splendour in the Grass, coming up with plenty of off-the-wall creations.
Now Rachel will be setting up her very own pop-up shop and market activation in the Brunswick Street Mall’s Entertainment POD every Saturday for the next three weeks.
Relaunched in late 2014 with new branding, new stalls, new operating hours, and a renewed emphasis on local and vintage fashion, accessories, arts, crafts and homewares, the Fortitude Valley Markets aim to provide a space for ‘dreamers, doers, style makers and culture seekers’ every Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
Rachel Burke will pop up at Fortitude Valley Markets on Saturday 10 September, Saturday 17 September and Saturday 24 September between 12pm and 2pm. Entry is free and all-day parking is available for $2.
