Eco Fashion Week Australia: DAY TWO

Eco Fashion Week Australia: DAY TWO

A day spent snorkelling in The Great Barrier Reef with a marine biologist… is a day well spent. Day TWO of my travels here at Eco Fashion Week was a biggie. I’ll save talking about my experience swimming with turtles and baby sharks for a rainy day. For now, let’s hit the fashion highlights (after a quick reflection of me as Elastigirl).

Jude’s collection lived up to my expectations after hearing so many wonderful things from The Green Hub. The hand-coloured linocut prints were exquisite, and I appreciated the bright colours on the runway (black is not my thing). The main aspect I loved about her collection, was it’s accessibility: I could imagine wearing the pieces myself, but also picture my mum and grandmother loving them too. I love this timelessness.

Upcycling is one of my favourite things. Upcycling done well is even better.

Having been inspired by the wastefulness of coffee pods, Beads & Pods turn used coffee pods into jewellery, and accessories. The colour palette was tasteful, and you could see the skilled craftsmanship, even from afar. I own a pair of earrings made from recycled coffee pods by a random individual at a little market fair, but the Beads & Pods creations were far beyond what I thought was possible to create with simply used coffee pods.

Try your best not to look at the gorgeous skirt, and focus on the jewellery, crafted from handmade paper. Curtin Springs are a self-sufficient property in Western Australia, 400km away from the nearest shop. They produce all their one-of-a-kind pieces on their ranch. The simple, earthy looking pieces were what caught my eye (like the one pictured above).
