Project 3 - Unstitched
An Urban Dream Brokerage Project
18 – 24 April 2016
19 George Street
Property Partner: Dunedin City Council
Unstitched created a colourful and unique experience in the heart of the city to engage the community in socially and environmentally positive fashion initiatives.
To coincide with Fashion Revolution celebrations around the world, in the first week of the April school holidays, Urban Dream Brokerage supported Just Atelier to design a pop-up space for exploring, creating and sharing ideas about contemporary fashion in the CBD. The event included free workshops open to all ages by local Dunedin textile artists, designers and craftivists –including Senorita AweSUMO, Desi Liversage, Just Atelier Trust featuring Mend and Make Awesome, Re:Fashion Upcycling, lunchtime BYO crafting, and a photo booth.
The team at Just Atelier shared their skills and gave people the chance to get hands-on with the processes involved in creating, personalising and repurposing contemporary fashion.
Unstitched was created to demonstrate fashion can be made in a safe, clean and beautiful way, where creativity, quality, environment and people are valued equally. The project encouraged Dunedin public to participate in creating a Fashion Revolution in Dunedin!
