At Life Instyle, our commitment has and always will be to celebrate and elevate creative minds and purpose-led products on their way to greatness.

As a team we are fuelled by great design, lasting relationships, strong coffee and love nothing more than to see our brands soar. We know what it takes to start a business (equal parts, blood, sweat, tears and elbow grease) and we support the bold and the brave business owners who take risks.

"Throughout everything we do, we are focussed on our continued support for small, local business and we are continually looking for ways to further elevate, thrive and grow start-ups and new exciting products" says Life Instyle Exhibition Manager, Flyn Roberts "so it is with great pride that we announce the launch of the Life Instyle New Breed Scholarship."

In a first for Life Instyle, The New Breed Scholarship is an award program designed to support up and coming designers as they take the leap into wholesale.
