Eco Fashion Week Australia (EFWA) 2018 rocked the eco world in November with 21 runway shows in Port Douglas, Queensland, and 35 runway shows in Fremantle, Western Australia.
The event expanded to two states this year to highlight the plight of the Great Barrier Reef, and the Daintree Rainforest in Queensland.
With the help of supporters, volunteers, and community groups the second edition of the event has certainly placed the Land Down Under on the international eco fashion map. The efforts of the many that came together show how the power of a united community (local and international) can indeed effect change!
This innovative, forward-thinking event featured impeccably executed runway shows exhibiting the best in organic, handmade, local, re/up-cycled, fair-trade, ethically produced, traditional, fashions and textiles.
55 ethical designers presented during week-long events running from Nov. 4 – 10 in Port Douglas, Queensland; and from Nov. 15 – 20 in Perth, Western Australia.
Presenting were Australian indigenous, local and interstate designers, along with international designers from Canada, England, India, Uruguay, Argentina, Japan, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, Vietnam, and the Czech Republic.
