Undressed in Sydney

No, I wasn't walking around Sydney in the nude this weekend . . . I attended the lovely Undress Runways, the first year this sustainable fashion event has been held in Sydney.

Pure Pod

I was so happy to finally attend this important event, and thrilled to know that sustainable fashion is growing to the extent that Undress were able to bring the shows to Sydney and Melbourne, in addition to Brisbane where it originated, in just a few short years.

I had received my tickets as my crowdfunding 'reward' for supporting the forthcoming Good On You fashion rating app (how great are crowdfunding rewards?!), and was thrilled to be sitting in the front row with my friend (and research supervisor!) Natalya alongside the hardworking Good On You Sydney team. I'd also 'commuted' to the Double Bay event with my dear pal, Yatu, from All For Good, and sat near Mel from Fashion Revolution Day Aus/NZ. It's always so great to be able to celebrate Australia's sustainable fashion scene and catch up with fellow sustainable fashion champions.

My photos from the night did not turn out well, so I've taken these images from the Brisbane show. These are just some of my favourite looks from the night. For me, the standouts were Pure Pod, Alice Nightingale and Fabled & True, and some beautiful swimwear by Koru, but it was great to see such a range of styles, and a few options for the men, too.

It was wonderful to see such diversity celebrated on the catwalk (though there was one model in Sydney that raised a number of concerned eyebrows in the crowd due to her extreme thinness), and during the final show of the night - a special collection by Prophetik by Jeff Garner out of the US - there was a gorgeous folk singer who was wearing a Prophetik dress that had been worn by Taylor Swift during the RED tour. Sustainable fashion, pop culture and folk music all in one? Delightful!

I sure wish I caught her name! It's Bridget something . . .
gorgeous voice, delightful personality, and a brilliant
way to wrap up Undress Sydney.

All in all a wonderful night out seeing some gorgeous fashion and connecting with good friends - can't really ask for more of a Saturday night, if you ask me.
