High fashion comes to Brisbane for Revive 2016

19 August, 2016

Council will be putting on a show with high fashion catwalks, tips and tricks from renowned stylists and workshops with eco designers at South Bank Parklands this Friday August 19.

Chairman for Field Services, Cr Peter Matic said high fashion with a twist would be making its Brisbane debut for the inaugural Revive festival.

“People search the globe looking for edgy garments that make a wardrobe distinct, but Revive will mean Brisbane fashionistas can discover the new Burberry, Balmain or Balenciaga here in their own city,” Cr Matic said.

“Nobody wants to show up to a party wearing the same thing as someone else, so why not come to Revive and see the amazing opportunities for revived fashion that already exist in our community.

“The potential for how old can be transformed into new is endless, and Revive 2016 will showcase how Brisbane designers are exploiting fashion to create high-end clothing at bargain prices.”

However Cr Matic said there was a more serious side to fashion, with textile waste becoming a growing part of Brisbane’s waste and recycling bins.

“We are seeing more than 11,000 tonnes of textiles being sent to landfill each year, so the more use we can get out of our clothing, the more sustainable Brisbane and the fashion industry will become,” he said.

“By using pre-loved threads people can actively help to keep Brisbane clean, green and sustainable.”

Cr Matic said the pop-up second-hand fashion festival encouraged Brisbane’s youth to incorporate second-hand clothing into their wardrobe in a fun and creative environment.

“We will also be working with a range of charity organisations to showcase the amazing opportunities for revived fashion that already exist in our community.

“Anyone who visits will see the wonderful wares on offer and can continue to hunt for second-hand treasures at the thrift shops, op shops and pre-loved clothing stores across our city.

“Council is committed to delivering a clean, green and sustainable Brisbane, and Revive festival is another way we are working towards reducing Council’s carbon footprint.”

Revive will run from 2pm to 8pm on Friday 19 August at the Cultural Forecourt in the South Bank Parklands.
