Olivia Kathigitis is partnering with SLOW Fashion Festival for the second year (2017 & 2018) to portray how fashion can be made mindfully, ethically and stand within the reality of the contemporary climate.
SLOW Fashion Festival, styled by Vogue Australia’s Sustainability Editor-at-Large Clare Press, is the work of Adelaide designers/creatives Anny Duff (Good Studios), Natalie Ivanov (Re-Swim Club) and Emily Sheahan (vintage & clothing exchange advocate), leading chef Simon Bryant and Wicks Estate for a day of change.
20th October, 2018 - Adelaide Fashion Festival Runway, Torrens Parade Grounds
The SLOW Fashion program includes, with focus on:
Sustainable – a curated runway of Australian brands that have an ethos of sustainability, long life and conscious craftsmanship. Designs will feature sustainably sourced fabrics and employ ethical practices through production. Brands include KitX, Bianca Spender, Nobody, Good Studios, Kalaurie, A. BCH, Autark, Home Job, Re-Swim Club and From Found.
Honouring – vintage has an important story to tell with its inherent nod to reuse and celebration of the past. To truly stand the test of time, in both fabrication and style, is the ultimate model of sustainability. Suppliers include The Commons and Claire Inc and stock will be cleaned by Karl Chehade Dry Cleaners.
Waste – question the norm of rejection and waste in the fashion sector and see the industry’s dead stock find new life on the runway.
Tickets are available here.
