The colour palette was mostly black on black, but the designer behind a collaborative exhibition in Princes St has a rosy view of Dunedin’s creative milieu.

Otago Polytechnic fashion design graduate Julia Palm is the latest to take advantage of the Urban Dream Brokerage project, a Dunedin City Council-backed initiative designed to liven up underused CBD spaces around the city.

Her exhibition "JPalm Presents" is a showcase of contemporary Dunedin-based artists and designers working in fashion, jewellery, photography, music and film, described as "multiple intersections through a collision of disciplines".

That included photography printed on garments, film projected on to the wall of the empty space at 23 Princes St, and even music by local band Elan Vital.

Miss Palm said Dunedin had a large group of creative people who did not just talk about what they would like to do, but did it.

She was keen to put together an exhibition, and decided to invite friends to help.

"Dunedin is just a melting pot for lots of creative babes who help you get your projects on the go."

The exhibition, which opened last night and runs until Sunday, includes works by jeweller Kelly O’Shea, film-maker Ted Whitaker and artists Ella Harrington-Knapton, Esta de Jong and Lance Strickland.
