Two of the faces of Undress Brisbane: Aicha Robertson and Jazmin Foster-Macready after stomping it out on the runway.
Predress could not have prepared you for the 2013 Undress Brisbane sustainable fashion runway. It was an eye opening evening, with 3 runway sessions to fill, Undress Brisbane brought out amazing designer after designer.
Runway 1 featured street wear, runway 2 showcased delicate intimates and comfortable sports wear and for the finale, runway 3 showcased gorgeous evening wear.
The bar was serving delicious organic cocktails and the runway seats were filled with Brisbane’s fashion elite. The length of the runway was extraordinary and, while giving the models a good workout, it also gave the attendees plenty of time to see the garments. Lit with soft blue lights and decorated with tree branches and leaves, this was a truly unique runway experience.
The fact that so many designers are committed to weaving sustainability into their production is extremely important for the future of our planet and sends a strong message to the rest of the fashion industry. Here is only a small sample of the talented designers and fashionable attendees from the evening.
