General Collective Market - Meets Milford Centre
Sunday, 1 November - Sunday, 1 November
10: - 16:00

Whether you prefer to trawl the mall or meander the markets, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with General Collective at Milford Shopping Centre this November.

A mecca for high-end, design-focused products thoughtfully curated to provide a vibrant market experience, General Collective are true champions of the ‘support local’ movement and have been offering Kiwi creatives and designers a platform to connect with Aucklanders since 2012.

This special one-off event will showcase a selection of New Zealand brands – ones you know and love along with some fresh and exciting emerging brands. From locally inspired jewellery, accessories, fashion and skincare, to kids’ products, art and homewares designed here in New Zealand, you can even tick off some of your Christmas shopping.

“General Collective is all about celebrating creativity, connection, and collaboration. We are always hunting down beautiful venues throughout Auckland to showcase the incredible talent of New Zealand’s creative community and we’re excited to be at Milford Centre for the first time,” says Rose Barbarich, Founder of General Collective.

The indoor/outdoor balcony space will be a buzz with music and market-goers can kick back, relax and experience some of Auckland’s very best street food vendors and artisan food producers.

Milford Centre is home to brilliant New Zealand fashion brands including STORM, moochi, Stitch Ministry and locally owned fashion and lifestyle boutiques like Flying Saucers and Flo & Frankie.

If you haven’t experienced a General Collective market before, come and see the difference. Until then, get a feel for their flare at the General Collective online marketplace www.generalcollective.co.nz.
