The True Cost takes you deep into the not-so-pretty world of fashion. Be taken on an eye-opening journey through a number of countries, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums. The film features interviews with leading influences in the fashion industry: Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva. This is a story about clothing, but not in the fluffy-fashion sense. True Cost delves into the lives of those who make your clothes, and the impact your fashion choices have on the environment.
Following the film screening of The True Cost will be a Q&A discussion with two well-known names in Melbourne's sustainable fashion industry; Rechelle Coombes, Founder, Socielle Co and Leeyong Soo, Fashion Writer and DIY master!.
Event program as follows:
5.45pm doors open, nourishing food and drink available, local exhibitors

8.30pm Q&A panel followed by prize raffle
9.00pm event concludes
