I recently went to the very first ‘Fashionably Numb’ event put together by Kelli from sustainable Canberra label Pure Pod. It was great to see this kind of focus on sustainable fashion in Canberra!
The event was made up of an ethical fashion market followed by a panel discussion on sustainable fashion and the impact of ‘fast fashion’ with Kelli Donovan from Pure Pod, Melinda Tually from Fashion Revolution Australia and New Zealand, Jennifer Nini from Eco Warrior Princess, Faye De Lanty from Salvos Stores, Rachel Pines from Moonbird and Brian Tunks from Bison Home.
I took lots of notes during the panel discussion (something that local MLA Shane Rattenbury commented on afterwards!) but the biggest thing I took away from the night was the importance of op shopping, so I thought I would share some things that I learned during the discussion.
