Brisbane Fashion Month 2021
During my residency I also took part in a panel discussion, Meet the Makers: In Conversation with Britt’s List, along with fellow Brisbane brands Maven Label, Soul Silk and Charmani, where we discussed all things fashion design and sustainable production. It was interesting to hear how each of these women is forging forward with their own sustainable fashion path, because after all, there is no one definitive answer to sustainability in fashion. Whether it’s up-cycling, using natural fibres, keeping production on-shore or mindfully designing for longevity, all of us can make better, more considered choices both as producers and consumers of fashion.
And, if all this was not enough, then comes the cherry on top of this whole BFM experience, the West Village Runway Show! Showing in the historic Peters Ice Cream Factory, it was a night of glitz and glam and a showcase of the latest in Queensland fashion design. It truly made my heart skip a beat to see my pieces on the catwalk. And yet, my top highlight has to be seeing the all the beautiful guests dressed up in celebration of our love of local fashion. Real people using fashion as expression and celebration. That, is what it’ll all about!
