The art of repairing clothing is alive and well, led by Brisbane fashion designers and makers who will share their knowledge at an event on Saturday 15 May in a collaboration with QUT Fashion for the Brisbane Art Design (BAD) Festival.
Radical Localism is an inspiring call to connect with fashion on a personal and local level. Co-designed by artisan and Practice Studio, it involves seven QUT fashion graduates and is supported by a group of QUT Creative Industries volunteers.
QUT senior fashion lecturer Kathleen Horton said the free event highlighted Brisbane’s vibrant fashion scene, its skilled makers and designers, and their commitment to addressing ethical concerns within the industry.
Participants can get hands-on with workshops and demonstrations, as well have fun exploring local fashion from 10am to 4pm at the Studio City event in Alexandria Park, Bowen Hills.
“Radical Localism reflects global trends towards more sustainable and ethical fashion that only intensified with COVID,” said Ms Horton.
