Play Fair for Fashion

Hey there, Melbourne fashion mavens – make sure you get yourselves along to the Fracture Gallery at Federation Square this week to check out the Fair Fashion Installation.

This fun and inventive display involves a series of mannequins that have been dressed by Melbourne-based fair trade and/or ethical fashion designers, and the line-up of labels is pretty formidable: there’s work by Bhalo, Kowtow, Otto & Spike, Etiko, Jane Heng, Seven Women and The Social Studio. Every garment on display is accompanied by details about its production process and makers, and the installation is designed to demonstrate the importance of supporting fair trade and ethical fashion brands. The event is on until this Friday 22 May, so catch it while you can – first in, best dressed!
