WHEN it comes to win­ter party dress­ing, it’s all about bal­ance. Try a longsleeved mini dress such as this one with a fun metal­lic de­sign, and keep your toes warm with a pair of sleek patent an­kle boots. For menswear, dressier fab­rics can turn ca­sual sil­hou­ettes into great date night op­tions. wa­ter­ways and the over con­sump­tion of fast fash­ion are some of the prac­tices the week-long event, which be­gins on Mon­day, hopes to high­light to con­sumers. Aus­tralia is among the coun­tries lead­ing the drive to­wards more sus­tain­able cloth­ing, with brands such as KITX and Mighty Good Undies set­ting an ex­am­ple for eth­i­cally pro­duced fash­ion. Mighty Good Undies founder Elena An­to­niou pho­tographed six eth­i­cal fash­ion ad­vo­cates, in­clud­ing model Rachel Rutt (pic­tured) and eth­i­cal stylist Alex van Os for its Bare For Good cam­paign, which launches next week to en­cour­age con­ver­sa­tions around sus­tain­abil­ity. Ian Har­ri­son, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive of the Aus­tralian Made Cam­paign, which has part­nered with Fash­ion Revo­lu­tion, said the global ini­tia­tive helped raise aware­ness about where their clothes came from and the ben­e­fits of buy­ing Aus­tralian made cloth­ing.
