This month The Rocks Pop-Up will host an exhibition and pop-up shop displaying original clothing designs by people from refugee backgrounds. It's run by The Social Outfit, an enterprise that seeks to enrich the lives of local refugees and asylum-seekers through creativity.

They're the sister organisation to Melbourne’s Social Studio, which currently produces two seasons of clothing a year using excess fabric from the fashion industry. Check out the lookbook here — items of which will be available to buy at The Rocks Pop-Up.

It's an opportunity to peruse and purchase the work of some hugely talented designers using hand dyes and digital prints on a range of fabrics, with visual sensibilities born from a different perspective. The Social Outfit is also running a series of free four-day design workshops at their pop-up — in hat-making, eco fabric dyeing, fashion crochet and giant knitting — as well as a runway show.
