Calling all Brisbane-based ethical fashion fans! You’re officially invited to our Fashion Revolution event from 5.30pm next Tuesday 21st April, presented by Peppermint, QUT Creative Enterprise Australia and QUT Fashion, with Fashion Revolution and supporting partner Patagonia.
We’ll be screening the eye-opening short film Traceable: a documentary set against the backdrop of the fast fashion industry, following emerging designer Laura Siegel’s journey across India to produce her collection and exploring our connection to the communities impacted by the products we consume. Afterwards, there’ll be a panel discussion on the issues surrounding ethical fashion – hosted by eco model Amanda Rootsey, and featuring special guest Wendy Savage, Social & Environmental Responsibility Manager all the way from Patagonia USA.
Patagonia was founded in 1973 and are renowned for their sustainability initiatives, including their Worn Wear program, their use of organic cotton and recycled textiles, and their ongoing donations to environmental groups. They also co-founded 1% for the Planet, an alliance of businesses that commit at least 1% of total sales to the environment. Also on the panel will be Editor Kelley Sheenan and Deputy Editor Rebecca Jamieson from Peppermint, Alice Jones (Sinerji), Elisabeth Harvey (Nico Underwear) and Cynthia Macnee (QUT CEA). It’s sure to be a fascinating evening and the tickets are free (but strictly limited), so don’t forget to register now using the link below. We hope to see you there!
