Fairly Fashionable? is a challenge to designers and consumers who question where, how and who makes their garments and under what working conditions. The challenge will be launched on April 1st when designers will receive fabrics ethically sourced from around the world and traded by members of the Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand. Designers will then have just two weeks to come up with a design incorporating this fabric:
Fairly Fashionable? is open to existing or aspirational fashion designers. Designers are challenged to:
- Create a garment or fashion accessory (jewellery, head piece, bag etc.) in 14 days!
- Incorporate in their design a piece of original Fair Trade fabric (supplied).
- Participants will need to add their own fabrics to complete their work but these must be ethically sourced e.g. recycled, upcycled, vintage etc.
- Participants must provide a design brief.
A public exhibition of the designs and Fair Trade Expo will be help on the 2nd & 3rd of May in Fremantle.
