Iconic Australian fashion stores Target, Country Road and Sportsgirl will soon be invaded by collections from RMIT University students, on 13-10-2009 as part of the Young Essentials Project (YEP).

Winners of YEP 2009 were announced at a gala event that featured a keynote speech from Target Australia Managing Director, Launa Inman.

Now in its 10th year, YEP gives Diploma of Fashion and Textiles Merchandising students from RMIT's Brunswick campus the chance to work to a commercial brief for key Australian fashion retailers.

Many past YEP winners have seen their capsule collections produced and sold in store.

Marketing Manager, Target Australia, Murray Chenery, said: "It is great to see so much passion and energy about design and fashion from students and teachers. “The students' work is of a consistently high standard and RMIT should be congratulated on developing our fashion designers of the future.”

YEP Coordinator, Ms Robyn Lyons said: “YEP provides an opportunity for close integration and communication between key industry and educational partners. “We are delighted to be able to work with such iconic Australian fashion names on such an exciting and challenging work project.”
