Returning for its fourth year, the Revive Second-Hand Fashion Festival is about to hit Brisbane streets! In the spirit of National Op Shop Week this one-day event will showcase a program of welcomed antics to help tackle textile waste.
With 6000kgs of unwanted clothing being sent to landfill every 10 minutes in Australia, this event will help any recycling rookies feel inspired to join the up-cycle game.
Along with vendors and crafters, the day will feature runway shows, live entertainment, some of Brisbane’s best food trucks and on-site stylists to help shoppers revamp their wardrobes using clean and green means. Plus, social media gurus Hannah Klose from Never Ever Pay Retail and Faye de Lanty will be divulging their details and tricks when it comes to thrift shopping and keeping their looks fresh.
Brisbane City Council has teamed up with a variety of community partners to help shine a light on their causes, and provide a prominent platform for them to raise some much-needed funds. Asthma Australia, Endeavour, RSPCA, Salvation Army, Save the Children, Lifeline and YMCA will each showcase their own stalls of classic goods they’re known for.
If you’re a fiend for vintage finds and one-off treasures this is an event not to miss. Plus, it’s good for your pocket, the environment and of course your wardrobe!
We’ll see you at the Cultural Forecourt of Southbank Parklands from 11am to 7pm on Saturday 17 August for a day full of fashion, unique finds, entertainment and eats!
11am – 7pm Saturday 17 August,
Cultural Forecourt, Southbank Parklands
