The industry needs a revolution, and thisÂ starts with you. Be apart of the rise to a more sustainable and ethical fashion industry, with Undress Runways annual showcasing event.
Undress Runways is a Brisbane-based company that celebrates and advocates for the work of ethical designers. Seeing fashion as more than just an aesthetic, theyÂ believes ethics + aesthetics is the new formula for an innovative, diverse, inclusive, respectful and environmentally responsible industry.
Their mission is to promote and educate people on the ways to become more sustainable, such as: giving new life to pre-loved garments and making more informed choices and examinations into the practices of labels. Through driving fairer industry standards, more innovative production practices, and a greater awareness for our social and environmental footprints, Undress Runways works to change the Australian Fashion community, and set new standards.
Held on October the 8th at the Exhibition Building in the Brisbane Showgrounds, this years themeÂ will revolve around â€œThe Future of Fashionâ€, focusing onÂ the presence of diversity, respect, equality, smart textiles and sustainability within the fashion industry. All in one huge night, Undress Runways brings together a collection of global designers to showcase their ethical day wear, evening wear, swimwear and lingerie. From organic fabrics to recycled accessories, bamboo underwear and even garments dyed in turmeric and red wine, this night is one that wonâ€™t only be entertaining and inspiring, but will make you think about your own wardrobe and fashion choices.
Wearable technology, virtual reality demonstrations and clothes that have connection, Undress Runways are making this year their most immersive and interactive experience yet. Expect an evening of champagne, food, sustainable pop up shops, and a runway show from the future!
