Join us in conversation with Elly Joel of Calypso Print Studio and Rosie Pow of Hubble + Duke as we explore their work, collaboration and success on a global stage.

Have you ever given thought to who creates the prints and patterns on your clothes and home furnishings? Elly Joel of Calypso Print Studio is a local textile designer whose unique designs are sold around the world, gracing everything from dresses in California to her own range of throws and cushions. 

Rosie Pow, of Hubble + Duke, is a multidisciplinary designer who has built an award-winning childrenswear business from a converted warehouse studio in Fremantle. With a loyal customer base worldwide, Rosie is passionate about collaborating with artists, ethical manufacturing and modern, classic design. 

Join us in conversation with Elly and Rosie as we explore their design stories. We’ll hear about their collaboration on a children’s swimsuit range using innovative fabric made from recycled plastic bottles and how Fremantle-based designers reach international markets.

If you’re interested in how a hand-drawn pattern travels from drawing board to a fabric, or how to create a design-driven business, this is for you. 

You’ll be treated to an evening inside a beautiful space above High Street in Fremantle’s West End, thanks to our generous event host, Detail, and your ticket price includes drinks from our good friends at Old Bridge Cellars.

When: Thursday 26 August
Where: Detail / Level One, 78 High Street, Fremantle
