SPEAKERS:

Ethically Kate - Kate Hall, environmental educator and joy-filled living inspirer, will share her tips on how to be a conscious fashion consumer and why it's crucial that we change the way we currently consume clothes.

ALLTC is a platform for considerate fashion consumers to discover and have a say about the sustainability & ethics efforts of their favourite brands.

The Finders Life - The Finder's Life was born out of Jess' love of beautiful clothing, coupled with a growing concern around fast-fashion and it's effects on our planet. She will be sharing her styling tips including how to curate a wardrobe you love, lots of pre-loved shopping tips, and how to keep your wardrobe fresh and fun all season round!

WORKSHOPS:

11am Bojagi Patchwork Technique with Sustinnoworx - Bojagi is a Korean technique of patchworking using simple hand-sewing materials. Use this technique to create beautiful textiles out of materials that you have saved from waste. This workshop is perfect for beginners, and is a meditative exercise in a fast-paced world.
