A tonne of clothing and textiles, otherwise destined for landfill, has been salvaged and a ‘Fast Fashun’ wonderland in an old textile factory in the back streets of Collingwood is waiting for you to explore.

Tenfingerz and Famous Artist Sebastian Berto are hosting this free experience as part of the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival. 

FAST FASHUN – An interactive, educational – DIY or DIE – fashion show. Fashion together an ensemble from the waste and then showcase it in a runway show happening every hour on the hour.

Open to all ages and all skill levels. Audiences are welcome to just view the installation and the runway shows, or participate in up-cycling the fashion waste assisted by local costume, fashion and art makers.

A low sensory event will be offered for audiences to participate in quiet crafting. 

Event times:
Exhibition open: Friday 28 February - Saturday 14 March, Monday to Friday 10am – 2pm. 
Interactive art making and hourly runway shows: Saturday 7 and 14 March from 11am – 6pm. Runway shows every hour on the hour.
Low-sensory quiet crafting day: Sunday 8 March 12 noon – 4pm.
