Revive Second-hand Fashion Festival | Brisbane

25 October, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm

Feast on fashion … and food trucks! Don’t miss Revive Second-hand Fashion Festival, a fun and FREE, fashion-focused program of activities featuring markets, runway shows, workshops, live entertainment as well as delicious bites from some of Brisbane’s best food trucks.

Textile waste is a growing problem, with 6000kgs of unwanted clothing being sent to landfill every 10 minutes in Australia.  Learn how to upcycle a pair of leggings, scarf or fabric into cute hair accessories, use simple techniques to transform a tablecloth into a circle skirt, and make your old jeans “pop” with patches. These fun, hands on workshops will all be part of the fun at Revive Second-hand Fashion Festival. Bookings are required.

Festival highlights include:

  • Hannah Klose from Never Ever Pay Retail, Sally Steele from Steele My Style and Harriet Nixon will be sharing their secrets to successful thrifting and styling
  • dozens of second-hand clothing and charity vendors
  • live music and runway shows
  • workshops to teach you how to create new things from old things.

Discover your unique style at this year’s Revive Second-hand Fashion Festival and take your learnings with you next time you shop.

Whether you’re a uni student, professional, tradesperson or in high school, pre-loved fashion can revive anyone’s wardrobe!

Be inspired to incorporate more preloved fashion into your wardrobe, while helping to reduce your impact on landfill and saving money. Share your second-hand finds on social media using the hashtag #ReviveBNE and help inspire others to be as thrifty as you!
