Sustainable Fashion Day

March 18, 2016

 

Today marks ​Sustainable Fashion Day (SFD), a seasonal event within the Mercedes-Benz Prague Fashion Week. While the Australian MB fashion week doesn’t role around until the week after Bindaring 2016 (a perfect sustainable shopping opportunity!) we think it’s never a bad time to discuss fashion and sustainability!

 

With the goal to provide professionals and the public education in sustainable fashion, the event showcases  attractive, sustainable and ethical alternatives to mainstream fashion.  It also offers practical solutions on how to change your wardrobe as well as advice on designing clothes and fashion brand management. This year’s program includes interactive shopping, workshops and a roundtable discussion. It’s the kind of event that delivers education and buckets full of karma.

 

We encourage you to take a look here so that you can get involved in your own SFD or start preparing for the Australian Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in May later this year (image courtesy the following website):

So whether you’re preparing your wardrobe for the onset (finally) of cooler weather, making a last dash for summer or at work today, we’d love it if you gave a thought to the impact your wardrobe is having on the world around you. Don’t worry if it doesn’t feel ‘green’ yet, we’ve borrowed a list of ecological brands (and handy definitions) from Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) to help you out.

 

Don’t forget the best way to help the planet, and your wallet, is upcycling. We’d love to see your cast offs and for you to pencil in the Bindaring Sale on May 8th this year!

 

The first step towards a sustainable fashion is the attitude of each of us.
