Next Friday, kicks off Buy Nothing New Month's campaign starting with Fashion Friday.
What is Fashion Friday?
A concept of Brotherhood of St Laurence's hip Hunter Gatherer stores (Melbourne, Australia), where free styling services will be offered in their City, Fitzroy, Moonee Ponds and Brunswick stores, which will provide assistance to help shoppers look sassy - sustainably.
I will be partaking in Fashion Friday, as one of Melbourne's Stylists (along with Leeyong Soo), situated in Hunter Gatherer's Royal Arcade city store, from 11am until 2pm, Friday 30 September.
What is Buy Nothing New Month?
Buy Nothing New Month (October) is the national campaign for conscientious consumption. Throughout October, people are encouraged to beg, borrow, barter, swap, rent or buy secondhand whatever they need, but they cant buy anything new.
The biggest task of the day? Trying to leave Hunter Gatherer without having purchased a wonderfully stylish vintage garment for myself!!
