COM­MU­NITY sup­port is grow­ing for WA’s first eco de­signer run­way show to ad­dress sus­tain­abil­ity in Novem­ber.

Eco Fash­ion Week Aus­tralia (EFWA) 2017 will fea­ture only sus­tain­able, eth­i­cal and lo­cally pro­duced fash­ion from both in­ter­na­tional and na­tional de­sign­ers.

The Fre­man­tle event aims to ig­nite, in­spire and chal­lenge all per­spec­tives in fash­ion and will present only the most cre­ative, artis­tic and beau­ti­fully sus­tain­able de­signs.

“This is cru­cial con­sid­er­ing that the fash­ion in­dus­try is one of the largest pol­luters world­wide, not to men­tion one of the least eth­i­cal,” EFWA founder Zuhal Ku­van-Mills said.

EFWA 2017 will host tex­tile art ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled Eco ECHO at the Mid­land Junc­tion Art Cen­tre from Novem­ber 20 to 27,

Tay­lors Art and Cof­fee House will also host EFWA 2017 com­mu­nity work­shops from Novem­ber 23 to 26.

EFWA’s free pub­lic eco sem­i­nars pre­sented by in­dus­try ex­perts will be held at Curtin Univer­sity on Novem­ber 25.
