At Guild the permanent designers rent “units” from the space. This concept forms the basis of the running of the space. These units relate to “real estate” in the space as well as operating costs and time spend staffing the space. Most of the spaces are taken permanently by Dunedin designers, who show a mix of fashion, cosmetics and homeware.
Remaining spaces are curated to showcase other creatives from around New Zealand every 4 weeks. There are two 'pop-up guest designer' spaces available per month. These are generally booked on a by-invite basis, but we welcome you to introduce your brand and apply for consideration. You can apply at any time.
