Australian designers Romance was Born, Issey Miyake and other high-profile practitioners proved that sustainability and fashion can coexist in this international exhibition.
Sustainability is becoming integral to the way clothing is produced, used and discarded.
Fashioning Now explored various methods that are rooted in low-impact production.
Fashioning Now included garments, textile objects, photography, illustration and video.
