Fashion Show celebrating the Diversity & Power of Women
From an early age women are told to be better, be slimmer, be fitter, be prettier, be younger. Media tells us to look a certain way. Patriarchy tells us to behave a certain way. The fashion industry can often typecast, objectify and sexualise us. Rarely do we see women that represent the way we look, and show the power we have.
It’s time to take back our power.
This is an event that gives womxn a platform to shine. We will showcase all who identify as women. Who have overcome. Who have felt powerless and unworthy. We want to lift them high. We want to celebrate them.
We warmly invite you all to join us in this celebration. This event will be held on the ancestral lands of the Wurundjeri people. We recognise their elders, particularly women in indigenous communities who be strong role models and inspiration for us.
This event is a women led initiative. All decision makers, committee and artists are people who identify as women. We are all volunteers. We do this because we love women.
We will not only be showcasing the diversity of women in fashion and story but there will also be entertainment that is inclusive and appropriate for all age groups and genders.
When purchasing a ticket, you will be supporting the work of Full Circle Social Enterprises. All profits will be directed to a leadership academy in India where girls who are displaced, trafficked and living in impoverished communities can have access to learnings that create employability pathways.
Ticket cost includes entry and entertainment. Drinks and Food will be available for purchase on the day. We will also have a range of awesome quality second hand clothing and accessories for sale as well as stallholders who are in themselves supporting their own respective charities and causes.
Come along and be a part of a movement the celebrates authenticity and recognises the need for a world where we embrace our differences and create doors rather than walls.
Audio Description and Auslan services will be provided. We are proud to be a fully inclusive event.
