The Change Collection to showcase on iconic Surfers Paradise Beach

As part of the Surfers Paradise Festival, the Festival Pavilion is a brand new element in 2015, located on the iconic Surfers Paradise beach and on Saturday the 11th of April
Undress Runways will present The Change Collection.

Sustainable is the future of fashion. The Change Collection opens your eyes to beautiful garments made with heart. The story of our clothing is important, where was it made? Who was it made by? The Change Collection showcases designs that are made ethically and with an environmental conscience. Think organic fabrics, garments dyed with turmeric and red wine, zero-waste collections, ethically produced garments, recycled accessories, bamboo underwear and much more. Undress Runaways celebrates the brilliant work of sustainable designers from around the world, with hopes to make public the demand for a fashion industry that values sustainable practices.

Edda Hamar is the director of Undress Brisbane and event coordinator for Undress Runways, and discovered sustainable fashion four years ago when she saw that there were local designers doing great things with very little support – and so Undress Brisbane was born. The organisation curates a collection of sustainable day-wear, evening wear, swimwear and lingerie from designers around the world bringing the clothes to one location for one night every year in a huge runway show. After three years of successful shows in both Brisbane and Melbourne, the team at Undress Runways are excited to bring their event to the Gold Coast that will feature local designers alongside some of the more well-known Australian sustainable labels. In April last year, Edda was the recipient of a $20,000 Qantas Foundation grant to assist her work in opening The Undress Shop, an online store that will stock only ethical and sustainable fashion live later this year.

Date: Saturday 11th April

Time: 7pm-8.30pm

Cost: Free
