Over the past 6 months, I have been curating a sustainable fashion exhibition for The Light Factory Gallery in Melbourne, Australia. The exhibition explores the relationship between sustainability and wearable art. It showcases both 2D and 3D works - sustainable designs displayed on mannequins by three Australian fashion designers, and beautiful fashion illustration displayed on the gallery walls by six Australian artists.
The exhibition, sponsored by Naked Range Wines and Mei + Picchi, will run from Thursday 20 June - Sunday 21 July 2013. The opening event is free and all are welcome. It will be a great chance for people to meet the artists/designers, so please come along on Sunday 23 June between 2pm - 4pm.
Accompanying the exhibition are two interactive workshops that will take place at the gallery:
# A refashioning workshop run by Peppermint Magazine's Leeyong Soo, which will be held on Saturday 20 July.
# A fashion illustration workshop run by local artist Angie Rehe, which will be held on Saturday 27 July.
For workshop bookings and more information, please visit The Light Factory Gallery.
