Today and yesterday I have had the pleasure of participating in the Sustainable City Showcase at Shed 10, Queen's Warf! Myself, some other AUT fashion + textile students, and out tutor Kim Fraser, have been showcasing some of our projects.
There are items from: screen/digital printed textiles and garments made of FairTrade cotton (courtesy of Pravin Sawmy from Fairtrade AUS/NZ), to up-cycled and recreated clothes.
Here are a few pics from the set up day!:
