Cross Conscious

Last week, Melbourne enjoyed a taste of conscious fashion when the Red Cross teamed up with the Whitehouse School of Design to deliver Cross Conscious: an event to raise awareness of their 140 Red Thread stores nationwide. Third year design students, along with local designers, exhibited everything from street style to high end fashion, including upcycled streetwear in homage to urban, edgy, Melburnian style. The event also offered music, art and DJs, and guests had the opportunity to snap up some bargains for themselves at the ‘Thread Shed’, a one off boutique pop up with upcycled, vintage and designer pieces. Godwin Charli, Olga de Polga and Ameca Calleja were just some of the designers to take part.
