MBFWA Day 2: Part 3

Another show, another change! For the night time shows (Alice McCall, Han and Zhivago) I wanted something a little more dressy and this Nicole Bennett dress was designed to make an entrance. Nicole creates all her garments ethically, responsibly and sustainably right here in Australia and is passionate about abolishing slave labour and poor work conditions in the fashion industry.

 As if it's sheer, stripy goodness wasn't enough, I paired it with a one-of-a-kind crystal necklace, hand crafted by the lovely Tiona of Brisbane jewellery label Mallow & Thyme. Each piece she makes is unique and features the most beautiful quartz and natural crystals I've ever laid eyes on. 

The idea of eco-fashion is spreading rapidly across the industry and beyond, with more and more people starting to question where their clothes come from, how they were made and who made them. What is the real cost of the cheaper items you might think are a bargain and who is being disadvantaged along the production line? From accessible local designers like Nicole Bennett all the way to those leading the pack like Stella McCartney, there really is a myriad of beautiful garments available to us now that we can be sure are high-quality, ethical, sustainable and will stand the test of time in our wardrobes.
