Eco Fashion Workshops
One of my favourite past times is OP shopping. It goes way back, maybe beyond some more, when my mum introduced me to the old Paddy's market at the Wool Sheds in New Farm,which are now Apartments.
Wow what a treasure trove of vintage clothing that was...
Being held at the Brisbane Square Library on Sat 4th April 12:30-1:30
and Sunday, 5 April at Indooroopilly Library 11am - 12 noon
Dress historian Margot Riley presents a fashion workshop showing you how to create your own fabulous vintage wardrobe and explaining the trend of wardrobe remixing.
Margot will also talk about the environmental benefits of vintage, retro and second-hand fashion. She will explain the environmental cost of producing modern textiles and what terms like Organic, Fair Trade and Eco-friendly actually mean.
Also while I'm on the subject of vintage wardrobe, this weekend, The Brisbane Vintage Fashion Fair will be on at Mt Gravatt Showground Community Hall. This year they have extended the show also to the new pavilion
