Guild | Dunedin Designed Inc.
Introducing Guild.
Guild is a stylish central Dunedin retail and gallery space run by Dunedin Designed Inc, a society conceived to support Dunedin and New Zealand designers, makers and artists. The store is located at 45 Moray Place, Dunedin.
Fundamentally, Guild is a shop, but one which is focused on working with independent creatives. Guild’s aim is to extend the stories behind locally designed, quality goods and in turn forge a strong bond between its customers and its designers.

At Guild 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 established Dunedin designers, who show a mix of fashion, cosmetics and homeware. Remaining spaces are curated to showcase rotating exhibitions from artists around New Zealand.

The society is now calling for applications for new local resident retailers, commencing as soon as possible, for a 6 month minimum term. This is what you're applying to be a part of!

Applications with high quality products in these categories are of particular interest at this time (but not limited to):
Cosmetics / skincare

Renting a 'unit' involves a low $20 weekly rent fee, and commitment to work a weekly shift in the central Dunedin shop. Sales made in the shop are reimbursed to the designer, less a small 10% commission for the society's running costs. [These costs are subject to change]
Selected retailers are required to pay a $95 establishment fee at the outset of the rental period.

- Applications are open now, and will be considered carefully by the Society. Selected designers will be notified as soon as possible
- Commencement date for 'exhibiting' is to be confirmed, please note availability in your application.
