WHEN Suzie Mylecharane started her clothing business 32 years ago it was the local craft markets that were her business training ground.
Starting with just two clothes racks and learning the ropes at each monthly Byron Community Market, the Myocum designer has built up her business, Ku Clothing, to the point where she wholesales around Australia.
Ms Mylecharane believes the supportive market culture that gave her such a head start is under threat with a new Byron Shire Council draft market policy and tender process currently on display.
The draft policy will potentially allow local markets to be run as a private commercial business, rather than the current management by the not-for-profit Byron Bay Community Centre which funnels all profits from the markets back into community projects.
