Come along and follow the journey of a garment – from creation through to the final product when it’s ready for the runway.

About this Event

Come along and follow the journey of a garment – from creation through to the final product when it’s ready for the runway – or delivery to you! From fabric artists and printers, to patternmakers and machinists, this will be a visually compelling story of the many hands that make our clothes.

Join us for the launch of Many Hands: The Making of a Garment which will include a discussion about the importance of highlighting the people and the skills behind Australia’s local industry. Expect to meet some other ethical makers at the event, learn more about brands that are made in Melbourne and about the importance of protecting the rights garment workers.

This exhibition is delivered in partnership with The Ark Clothing Co, which has been accredited with Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) since 2012. The Ark design and make all their products in Melbourne with their in-house team and their network of valued and trusted longstanding makers.

Anyone can view the installation for free throughout the festival (11 - 20 March 2021) from 8am- 6pm daily.

This event is owned and operated by Ethical Clothing Australia and proudly promoted by Melbourne Fashion Festival as part of the Independent Program. Please contact the organiser directly for further information and to review their COVID safe plan.
