Colour Our World
We at Peppermint love a good fashion festival, especially one that brings style to the suburbs. Running alongside L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, Colour Box Studio’s Fashion Program is doing exactly that – with the added bonus of a focus on sustainable, ethical and local fashion. Dates to jot into your diary if you happen to be west-side of Melbourne (more accurately, in the Footscray area) include March 10, when the studio will host a clothes swap, and March 20, which is a chance to network and hear from industry figures such as Dale Cornell from New Model Beauty Queen and Tegan Rose from Ink and Spindle at an event titled Fashion Box. Silk artist Ida Suod will run silk scarf printing workshops and Liz Doust will show you how to design and screenprint a purse, and if that’s not enough DIY to satisfy your cravings, more workshops will be announced on the website soon.
