When you put your pants on one leg at a time, do you dress for comfort? Style? To make a statement? To challenge, provoke or rebel? Everything you wear can do all of the above, possibly all at once. Throughout history, plenty of folks have tried — particularly when it comes to matching their outfits with their political message.
At Manifesto of Dress: A Night of Counter Fashion at 6pm on October 12, what's likely to be a rather creatively and engagingly-attired cohort will gather at Brisbane Powerhouse to ponder this very topic. Explore the ups and downs of counter fashion in a relaxed conversation, learn a few things and ponder your own sartorial choices. The event is free, but you can pair the fun with a beverage for the bar as long as you bring along your walley.
The hour-long event is presented by The Stitchery Collective, a group that's well aware of fashion's multiple facets. The design collective believes that it should be "joyous, meaningful and beautiful all at once." You can't argue with that.
