There's no such thing as a standard piece of clothing to The Brisbane Collective, even if the item in question has been up-cycled or recycled. Indeed, their sustainable fashion pop-up doesn't just sell pre-loved wares that have been given a new lease on life — it turns them into art.

When Sustainable Wearables: The Pop-Up Shop comes to Church Brisbane (aka Crowbar's function space), it'll be offering up pieces to purchase and to marvel at. Taking place from 3pm on October 21, expect to browse and buy everything from jackets, jeans, shirts and tees to tote bags, badges and patches, all transformed into something new by 27 local creatives and makers. Artists on the bill include Harley & Händen, Sober Bob, Emma Le Strange, Cronk and Tonic and Slow Motion Collective.

The end result is a range of one-of-a-kind clothing items that you'll want to wear and put on display — so, why not grab your favourites and do both? If you liked The Brisbane Collective's Battle Jackets exhibition back in 2015, it's safe to say you'll love this.
