The Spirit of the Black Dress

March 7, 2012

One of the highlights of L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival for me is The Spirit of the Black Dress. Supporting Australian fashion designers and sustainable fashion initiatives, the Spirit event is always teaming with excellent people and fabulous fashion. Tonight was no exception. Congratulations to the team on an outstanding evening.

Ten designers are selected to submit a black dress designed with sustainability in mind. Sustainable practice, sustainable materials and lifestyle thinking are the three key criteria and designers must identify how their black dress addresses each of these considerations.

    Right on, Lou Pardi – such a great initiative!

    Congratulations to Sam on her dress being in this year’s Spirit and I’m also pretty excited to see our lady, Lara has a piece in this year’s Spirit magazine – really wonderful to see that there’s an event to showcase their talents and contribution to smart fashion. woot
