Fashion as a Vehicle for Social Cohesion

  • Schoolhouse Studios 81 Rupert Street Collingwood, VIC, 3066 Australia (map)

Presented by The Social Studio as part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival 2019 program, this panel discussion will enable rich dialogue around the ever-expanding relationship between fashion, community, culture and ethics. The panel will be held in the Schoolhouse Studios in Collingwood, off Rupert St.

For close to a decade, The Social Studio has been a dynamic social enterprise in Melbourne’s cultural landscape, bringing environmentally sustainable design and ethical business practices to the community. It is a fashion school, clothing label, retail shop, digital textile print studio, clothing manufacturer and community space, created from the style and skills of young people from new migrant and refugee communities.
