We are very excited to announce that we have 6 very enthusiastic emerging designers for Undress Brisbane who love sustainability just as much as we do.
We wanted to select designers who vary in style and genre and also who have different ways of being sustainable. We will feature: Alexandra McGuire, Buoy, Fabled and True, Harriette Hill, Castro and Bonanna.
So where are these designers emerging from I hear you ask! Well, each designer has a different story and journey - all with a common goal of creating something that is different from mainstream and mass-market garments.
Fabled and True is a darling little label that creates garments entirely from vintage fabrics. It’s described as having a girlie girl style and tends to focus on creating sweet little dresses for its customers. Each design is made and designed in Brisbane, this means only a small carbon footprint is created and it's great for the environment.
Buoy is a very new company that produces t-shirts from organic cotton and features a tailor made pocket from post consumer recycled material. Each style is limited to only 10 and has it’s own individual cut. This means that you will buy something which is unique and unlike anything else on the market. I love a brand that pays attention to detail and Bhoy have certainly done this with its swing tags being 100% post-consumer recycled box board and only using vegetable based inks.
Alexandra McGuire has just graduated from QUT and has created a beautiful line of swimwear. Her line is inspired by her travels to India and specifically the truck art she saw on the streets. Her ‘Border Lines’ collection is made from fabric that is printed here in Brisbane and utilises minimal waste by only printing each individual pattern piece.
You will see all of these designers and many more on October 13th. Remember to buy a ticket!
See you there!
