Re Loved 2: Fashion re-cap

What happens when the task to create a Spring/Summer collection using only deconstructed pre-loved garments or factory off-cuts is given to six of Canberra's most talented emerging designers? A standing ovation for ReLoved2, showcased in the gallery space at Craft ACT , proving that we can reduce re-use and recycle in great style...

Collections from Canberran indie labels Craftilee, George, Handmade By Hanny, The Renlee Label, Hayley Caroline and Polbymade all made use of recycled materials.

It was definitely a fun night! The designers all did a wonderful job, and I was happy to be able to help show them off (modelled for "George" by Georgina Edwards and "Misch & Me" Hayley Caroline, by Hayley Wandett-Smith)
