Emma Morris is the founder of The Makers and Shakers, Round She Goes and the Slow Fashion Market.
Before operating markets, Emma worked in public relations and event management. Heading up PR for the award-winning book publisher, Emma designed and managed media campaigns for a diverse range of authors, including senior federal government politicians, renowned international journalists, and respected social commentators.
Emma established Round She Goes Market in 2008 and it is Australia’s biggest and most popular preloved and vintage fashion market, and has proudly played it’s little part in the fight against the waste generated by fast fashion.
The Makers & Shakers Market was established in 2015 and is Australia’s premier mid-sized makers market, held in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Canberra. The event features a curated line up of both established and emerging creatives, and offers shoppers the very best in handmade: from beautiful homewares, stunning lifestyle products to delicious food.
The Slow Fashion Market was established in 2018 and features independent Australian brands, offering quality women’s, men’s and children’s fashion and accessories that have been made ethically and sustainably.
These three events are connectors between the growing community of local independent creative businesses and consumers who appreciate quality and ethically made goods.
