It’s Australian Fashion Week – celebrate the awesome work of QUT Fashion

After Darkly, the 2103 QUT Fashion Graduate Show, is a sensory delight. The collections are stunning and varied, and Hayley Elssaesser is already tipped as a label to watch at Australian Fashion Week.  Go Hayley!

Fashion isn’t only about looking fabulous. There are many exciting community-based projects being developed at QUT.

Second Skin, fashion lecturer and researcher Dean Brough’s interdisciplinary work with young people, builds connections between fashion and sun safety. Look great, save your skin. And it was recently showcased on Totally Wild!

Head of Fashion, Kath Horton and other fashion staff developed The Stitchery Collective, a socially inclusive, not-for-profit, design/craft organisation through research undertaken at QUT.  Follow their blog for creative activities you can join in with.  If you love fashion, get making with The Stitchery Collective:

Can fashion be more than pretty clothes for pretty people? The stitchery collective are designers, artists and thinkers who believe it can be. Join us for design workshops, talks, community collaborations, exhibitions and clothing swaps. The stitchery collective: a space for slow, meaningful, challenging, joyous – and pretty – fashion culture.”

You can get your fashion fix at the library by flicking through the fashion glossies on level 6 of Kelvin Grove Library.  Peppermint, Frankie… all your faves are here. The library’s fierce Fashion Subject Guide has even more great fashion resources.

Happy Fashion Week!
