On Tuesday 17 March 2009, the ‘No Sweat Shop label’ will present ‘Refabricated’
The exhibit will commence at New Model Beauty Queen’s (NMBQ) boutique store, 57 Smith Street Fitzroy, and continue along the street with a salon show. Featuring ‘No Sweat Shop label’ accredited companies such as NMBQ, Qualitops and Rise-Up.
The Program Co-ordinator of the ‘No Sweat Shop label’, Tommy Clarke, said the focus of the event on small-scale local operations was very timely.
“I think in the current climate, we might see a renewed focus on smaller and local labels with consumers looking for more personalised garments with a local connection. By making the most of initiatives like the No Sweat Shop label accreditation system, local fashion labels and boutiques can also provide an ethical guarantee to consumers which many of the off-shore producers simply cannot do,” Mr Clarke said.
Dale Cornell the owner of NMBQ, a No Sweat Shop label accredited manufacturer, has recently formed the Melbourne Textile Collective with hand-printed textile and design studio, Ink & Spindle, to create a network of emerging designers, to share information about ethical, local, and bespoke production.
“The vision for this network is committed to bringing together local designers in order to create a more cooperative approach to production, while maintaining a commitment to the local and ethical structure,” Mr Cornell said.
