Sustainable designers to show at MSFW
Collection 3056 – less a group show and more an illustration of community, Brunswick’s sustainable designers are joining forces to show at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week
If fun comes with numbers, then Collection 3056 is set to be a merry evening indeed. No, it’s not a crowd of 3056, but a group of eight designers, banding together to show their designs as part of the official program for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. Amongst the eight-strong group are labels such as Anna Cat, A Name is a Label, Lhords, NMBQ, Jack of Diamons, Hand Hook Yarn, Neisha and Ella, with local stylist Bianca Christoff bringing them all together as the event’s artistic director. Though technically a group show, Collection 3056 could be viewed more as an illustration of community, with all eight designers hailing from the creative hub of Brunswick. A postcode hence the name isn’t the only thing the group shares. Another combining factor is their dedication to ethical and sustainable design practices, a key topic at this year’s fashion week.
