Made on the Left - WA markets

Today I went along to the Made on the Left markets in Perth. Held in the State Theatre Centre in the CBD, it was a great location full of independent designers from WA.

Made on the Left is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. The markets showcase products by local designers and are full of cute, irresistible bits and pieces! While O2wear didn't attend as we don't hand make our pieces, I love a good market and supporting local talent :)

I took a few photos so you can check it out below. Be sure to go along to their next event!
