Fairly Fashionable is a challenge for local designers to bring focus on the difficulties of design and production in the fashion and garment industry. Designers are challenged to create a garment or fashion accessory in 14 days by incorporating in their design a piece of original Fair Trade fabric (supplied).
The challenge start date, 24th April, marks the first anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory disaster in Bangladesh, and culminates on the eve of World Fair Trade Day, in Fair Trade Fortnight. A public exhibition of designed work will be on display at MANY 6160, Fremantle's premier new fashion quarter in the old Myer building, from World Fair Trade Day, May 10th-18th 2014.
