Sustainable, Ethical, Local Fashion & Textiles
Last week we had the pleasure of visiting the wonderful, new Colour Box Studio in Footscray, to take part in a forum on how to be sustainable, ethical & profitable in the Fashion, Clothing and Textile Industry.
The panelists above are Dale Cornell of New Model Beauty Queen, Vicki Sterling of Bonds Clothing, Simon McRae of Ethical Clothing Australia and myself.
A big thanks to the lovely folk at Colour Box who organised & hosted the night - it was really informative & very encouraging to see so many people keenly interested in producing and showcasing wares in a sustainable manner. Lara & I were saying how much a relief it is to now have a shop we can ACTUALLY SHOP AT! Yay!
Fairtrade undies! Yes we bought some :)
We were so pleased to visit this wonderful new enterprise and encourage any of you Melbourne locals to head on over to their lovely little shop where you can buy all kinds of local, ethical clothing and accessories! So great - go team :)
They also have a Pozible Campaign happening at the moment, so for any of you not in Melbs, here is your chance to shop and support Colour Box - a community creative hub!
