MILJO PRESENTS an exhibition by designer ANNA WESTCOTT

MILJO is a highly edited lifestyle design store with an emphasis on sourcing and supporting products still made from their place of originality.
Although there's a clear Scandinavian influence, they also support other local and
international products / designers.
Rather than focusing on mass production, MILJO look at the merit of good design with
sustainable or interesting production methods with an emphasis on quality and
attention to detail.

Starting with Anna Westcott - MILJO plan to hold a series of design exhbitions and events that showcase and promote emerging local talent / products made + designed locally to increase local awareness and interest of creative talent in Australia.
Fresh off the back of an eventful few months, fashion designer Anna Westcott will try herhand at a multi-media art installation to be showcased within MILJO's light and airy Scandinavian inspired retail/gallery space.
Handpicked from her graduate year to show at the 'RAFW INNOVATORS 2011' show,
custom costume making for 'THE GRATES' and various awards & accolades from industry
have kept Anna busy. However she will kick off the first in a series of design
events/exhibitions to be held in store at MILJO.
Alongside a video installation & photography exhibit will sit sculptural pieces illustrating the inspiration behind her SS12 debut collection 'PHOS'. Centred around the idea of refraction: how light refracts through water & creates distortion. Using surrealistic digital prints, the exhibition, as does Anna's collection, plays with movement, scale & colour.
