This post was originally published on this site

Undress Runways wowed again this year at their Brisbane show – their 12th after six years bringing ethical and sustainable fashion to the mainstream in Australia.

Pulling more than 600 people, this year’s show merged technology and fashion with the theme The Future of Fashion.

From swimwear to couture, urban streetwear to “eco luxury” garments made from recycled tyre inner-tubes, the innovation in this industry is exciting!
