About the event
SAVING THE EARTH ONE UPCYCLED GARMENT AT A TIMEAlmost 14 thousand kilograms of textiles is being sent to landfill every ten minutes in Australia.
It’s a shocking statistic, and it’s time we re-think the fast-fashion cycle.
A Fitting Connection, are determined to become part of the solution, embracing sustainable fashion and closing the loop by upcycling pre-loved textiles. Fossick wants to help any way we can, and we know you will too!
Come along to this fashion first event and see two amazing upcycled ideas and support local business.
Since COVID lockdowns and restrictions charities are overwhelmed with donations and we don’t have an effective way to recycle textiles here in Australia. Counties that use to take our textiles to recycle are either still closed, reducing what they accept or no longer taking our textile waste. This all leading to huge landfill issues
A Fitting Connections 'ReFashioned' label tackles this problem by upcycling old clothes & textiles to give them a second life. By purchasing our products made of reclaimed fabric, or even having your own old clothes re-purposed, you can feel good knowing you are making more sustainable fashion choices.
With over 20 years’ experience in fashion and textile design and production, a fitting connection founder Katrina Naish has seen the challenges small businesses face trying to get their ideas off the ground within a complex global industry. She has witnessed creative ideas flounder and is excited to be teaming up with Fossick to launch two of her new projects!
Our Focus On Community and Sustainability
A Fitting Connection is proud to work with many local, sustainability-focused clients. Yet there is no getting past the fact that the fashion and textiles industry remains one of the world’s greatest polluters.
While the fast-fashion problem is a global one, we believe that starting with small, local steps is how the industry will change.
Like so many businesses in 2020, A Fitting Connection has been hit hard by coronavirus-related shutdowns. We choose to see this great pause as a blessing, allowing us time to experiment with new ideas and launch sustainability initiatives.
We have been very excited to launch our ReFashioned label and Fundraising With Purpose campaign, both using reclaimed textile waste to produce new products. As we experiment and learn, we look forward to working on an increasingly larger scale in partnership with local fashion producers and boutiques.
We are part of the fashion sustainability revolution!
Fossick will treat you all by helping to model these fabs items, supply you with a glass of bubbles on arrival, have a door prize draw, all at no cost to you. We want your company and your honest feedback for what's on show.
