Dagmar Rousset is a dual concept store that sells clothing by day and offers French classes at night. Julia studied French and translation in both Melbourne and Paris and taught French for 10 years at the Alliance Francaise and Monash University. In 2009, she decided to throw herself into the merciless world of fashion retail with no experience whatsoever! She sees herself as a new, gentler kind of retailer: not in it for the money but rather to make the world a bit brighter and her customers a bit braver in their sartorial choices.

Julia will share with us her experience as a 'curating' creative - one who doesn't make the products she sells, but rather uses her keen eye and sense of style to bring together a host of local and interational artisans who do. She will discuss the various collaborations she has instigated via Dagmar Rousset (including those with ALL Knitwear and Rowena Martinich), detail her unique shop/school business model and what she has learned about both along the way.

After Julia's presentation, join us for morning tea.

Please note seating is limited so be sure to book your tickets early.

Hope to see you there!
