THE ESSEN­TIALS P’Junkworld Ex­hib­tion There Is Stu­dio, 49 Stu­art Street, North­bridge June 28 - July 13 EMERG­ING de­signer of sus­tain­able fash­ion la­bel P’Junk, Kate Han­nah, will hold her first ex­hi­bi­tion P’Junkworld from Thurs­day at There Is Stu­dio in North­bridge.

Han­nah, whose ethos in­cludes prac­tis­ing sus­tain­abil­ity, said tex­tile waste was one of the big­gest prob­lems fac­ing the fash­ion in­dus­try.

“I place high im­por­tance on be­ing sus­tain­ably minded and eth­i­cal,” she said.

“I like to in­cor­po­rate re­cy­cled and sec­ond-hand ma­te­ri­als into my de­sign work to help do my bit to push for change.

“I love the chal­lenge pre­sented by tak­ing things that have been dis­carded and to­tally re­work­ing them to be a part of a fab­u­lous new fash­ion cre­ation. My de­sign prac­tice is very ma­te­ri­als-driven and in­volves ex­per­i­ment­ing with the sec­ond-hand ma­te­ri­als I have sourced to find so­lu­tions for giv­ing them new life.

“I work with a va­ri­ety of sec­ond-hand ma­te­ri­als that I up-cy­cle in my de­signs.”

WHAT: WHERE: WHEN: Kate Han­nah likes to up-cy­cle ma­te­ri­als for her de­signs.
