Fashion Exposed NOW: Meet Nina Roberts
Each year, buyers and brands gather to trade and talk at Fashion Exposed NOW. In this special series, we talk with the names behind Australia's leading premium fashion trade show.
Here, exhibition director Nina Roberts takes us behind the scenes of the event.
What was your experience in the industry prior to joining Fashion Exposed NOW?
I have worked in the exhibition industry for many years, specialising in everything from business development to wholesale.
What drew you to the role?
I have experience dealing with the exhibition and fashion industries so this role combines both of my passions. My love of fashion inspires me to put emerging and established Australian and international brands at the forefront of this business to business event, taking place over 2 days in Sydney.
What do you see as the biggest opportunity for the event?
Fashion Exposed NOW is the only dedicated fashion trade show in Australia. Exhibitors are set to meet visitors seeking buying opportunities, and visitors will only see quality apparel, accessories and footwear. Fashion Exposed NOW is also a great opportunity to see the range that Australian and international brands have to offer, all under one roof.
What would you like to achieve in your role over the next 12 months?
I would love to see Fashion Exposed NOW grow into the ultimate meeting place for the Australian fashion industry. The 2019 show will see international brands launching for the first time in Australia and we hope to see more in 2020 and beyond.
