HELP ME MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT

I only send positive vibes and news about good things, inspiring people and ethical fashion.

Kangan Institute students delivered a thrift-shop lover’s dream collection at the Eco Threads runway event on Saturday 27 August as part of the 2016 Melbourne Spring Fashion Week program.

Kangan Institute’s longstanding commitment to sustainable fashion saw a creative collaboration with Australian Red Cross, which challenged students to upcycle, recycle and redesign secondhand clothing for the ‘Rags To Runway’ collection. Backed by remixed rock and roll tracks, ACDC Lane transformed into a quirky catwalk scene, draped with repurposed fabric offcuts and lined with astro turf bench seating.

60s and 70s vibes dominated as models moved and grooved down the runway in bell sleeves and flared legs, lace, tassels, velvet, leather and suede. Long layers contrasted with micro-minis, high-waists complimented cropped boots, and embroidered details adorned patch-worked denim.

Finishing inside the iconic music venue, Cherry Bar, Melbourne all-girl band Stonefield performed head to toe in exclusively designed upcycled outfits, made with 3D body scanning technology at Kangan Institute.

The Eco Threads ‘Rags To Runway’ collection oozed character and creativity, proving the high quality of Kangan Institute’s fashion design students yet again.
