REVIVE Festival

Today is the day I share my sustainable fashion story at the Revive Pop-Up Second Hand Festival at Soutbank, run by the Brisbane City Council. I have an entire half hour spot (6:30pm, speakers tent) and I’ve already got the shakes as I write this post! Despite being on stage hundreds of times over the years, I still always get nervous. The only thing that pulls me through is the fact that I’m talking about something I care so much about – ethical and sustainable fashion. There will be live entertainment, thrift stalls, fashion shows, workshops and talks. I’ll also be sharing the stage as part of a panel with my pal Never Ever Pay Retail and Jill Chivers at 7:00pm (right after my talk). Hope to see your faces there!

Join me tomorrow night (Friday) at the @brisbanecitycouncil REVIVE pop-up second hand Festival at Southbank! The event runs from 12pm - 9pm and is packed with thrift stalls, food trucks, workshops and live entertainment. I'll be sharing my story at 6:30pm at the speakers tent, and will continue on to join a panel at 7pm alongside my pal @nevereverpayretail  Hope to meet you there ♥️

Billy Blue Commercial

When the folks at my uni asked if I wanted to talk about my experience so far studying Fashion at Billy Blue College of Design… I said yes, as long as I can wear my favourite hat! I travelled to Sydney to shoot this cute little commercial that I’m excited to share, and before you say it – yes – I change my hair way too frequently (since shooting this it’s back to chololate brown, haha!)

ABC Feature

Wow! I’ve been a little blown away by the insanely awesome response I’ve had thanks to a recent article/radio interview I did with the ABC (check it out HERE). I’ve only just touched down in Brisbane after a whirlwind two weeks in Stockholm on a uni design excursion and I’m yet to catch my breath. I have many exciting posts up my sleeve though!

If you’re reading this because you’ve read the ABC article, I just wanted to note that unfortuntaly, I’m not currently making any more videos. The Unmaterial Girl series was produced by a company that recently went backrupt, which means I’m stickin’ to what I know – writing and taking photos. I’m trying to find a way to create video content myself, so stay tuned!

A big hello to all the new awesome followers who have just popped up thanks to my recent interview with the @abcnews_au as part of their @waronwasteau project, so excited to be included

I also need to mention that my slow fashion idol – Livia Firth – was kind enough to regram the ABC article on her instagram! What is this life!
