Eco Fashion Week Australia 2017 – Designers, Schedule & Tickets

Australia will be hosting a selection of incredible eco fashion designers from around the world

Kira Simpson

Eco Fashion Week Australia is just around the corner and The Green Hub is a very proud media partner.

I’m excited to share that I’ll be heading over to Fremantle late November to cover the shows and events happening across the week.

I’ll be documenting each show in real time so if you can’t be there in person, make sure you follow us on Instagram so you have front row seats!

Eco Fashion Week Australia runs from the 23rd to the 27th of November, starting with an opening night gala, followed by four nights of fashion shows showcasing local and international sustainable fashion designers plus several workshops during the week.

You know I am obsessed with dogs so this deserves a special mention. EFWA is partnering with the RSPCA WA and hosting a designer pop up shop to raise funds for the animal rescue group.

EFWA has also partnered with Sea Shepherd Australia and will be donating $5 from every ticket sold during the week.

See below for a detailed schedule of shows and events and list of designers showing. There are a limited number of tickets available for each night so be quick!

"The goal is to ignite and inspire attendees to change their perspective on fashion. Rallying against the notion that eco fashion is all hemp and granola."
