The Wear The Change campaign raises funds for The Social Outfit’s non-profit community programs supporting women from refugee and new migrant backgrounds with training and employment pathways in the fashion industry.
Since 2014 The Social Outfit has trained and employed over 400 people through their specialist programs, clothing production, retail, design and marketing, fashion shows, and community events.
“We believe in an Australia where refugees and new migrants are warmly welcomed and settle well, celebrating our diversity and collective skills and strengths. We believe that tapping into the creativity of refugee communities leads to empowerment and social inclusion.”
