MBFWA: A Discussion About the Future of Sustainable Fashion


It started with food: a slow but sure awakening of our collective conscious to the fact that what we put into our bodies is very important, and we should therefore probably know what’s in it, and where it comes from. We’ve now started to realise that it’s also important to know about what we wear: Who made that dress? Where did they make it? Where does its value lie? How was the material produced?

With a strong movement towards sustainable standards and a need for adaptation to environmental demands a panel of international and Australian brands discussed what pioneering practices are shaping the future of our fashion and the future of our planet in the first seminar of Australian Fashion Week.

Presented by Clean Cut, guests included representatives from Nobody Denim, Cue Clothing Co. and Kowtow.

An Interview with Samantha Jade


Ever since X-Factor announced the winner in 2012 to be Samantha Jade, Australia’s own pop starlet has kept on rising and kept her name in the spotlight, co-writing every song on her album, and working with the world’s top producers including Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins and Wyclef to name a few. Plus, she starred as Kylie Minogue in the TV mini-series about INXS. Phew!
