HRAFF and Ethical Clothing Australia Presents
Closing Night: Fashion Reimagined
Post-film panel discussion
Trailblazing fashion designer Amy Powney is on a mission to create a sustainable collection from field to finished garment and transform the way we engage with fashion.
Fashion has never seen such progressivity – or inclusivity.
Amy Powney, of cult label Mother of Pearl, is a rising star in the London fashion scene. Raised off-the-grid in rural England by activist parents, Amy has always felt uneasy about the devastating environmental impact of her industry. When she wins the coveted Vogue award for the Best Young Designer of the Year, which comes with a big cash prize, Amy decides to use the money to transform her entire business.
This urgent and energetic documentary follows Amy over three years, where her own personal revolution becomes the precursor of a much bigger, societal change.
This film will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Ethical Clothing Australia's Rachel Reilly discussing the progress and development made for the future of a sustainable clothing industry in Australia with Beth Macpherson, Courtney Holm, and Hahn Le.
Ethical Clothing Australia has no affiliation with the brand, Mother of Pearl (MoP) featured in the documentary Fashion Reimagined. MoP is not an ECA-accredited business.
