We’ve been sharing the joy and benefits of buying preloved with Round She Goes now for 10 years, and we are excited to announce that we’re expanding to a new concept. The Slow Fashion Market will be Sydney’s first sustainable and ethical fashion market for new clothing. It is an event for people who care about how their fashion is made and who made it.

The one day event will take place on Saturday 1 September at the deco-era Petersham Town Hall with 40 independent brands. The stallholders are those that produce fashion and accessories (women’s, men’s and children’s) with an emphasis on quality and durability, and who use materials that are sustainable and non-toxic, and who either make the fashion themselves or pay their workers fair wages.

I believe that fashion doesn’t have to be intimidating and serious. I want to make it easier for ethical designers to sell, and make it easier for shoppers to find them. And I love to put on events that are fun, where the atmosphere is about celebrating talented makers and about feeling good in our clothing. I want to create an environment where everyone is comfortable asking questions and ‘who made my clothes?’ is the core question at this event.

The movement around ethical fashion is growing rapidly. More and more, consumers want to feel that their purchases aren’t having a negative impact on the world.

Each year Australians send around $500 million worth of clothing to landfill, with around 85 percent of the new textiles we purchase are sent to the tip. The idea behind the ethical and slow fashion movement is to put the brakes on the pace of over-production, over-consumption and over-disposal of garments, by instilling an awareness, appreciation and connection to the process of quality and ethical production.

The Slow Fashion is starting in Sydney and we hope to bring the event to other Australian cities in 2019. The market will be open from 10am-3pm, and entry is $2. 

And of course, speciality coffee and quality food will also be available.

Are you an ethical fashion maker or do you know one? Stallholder applications are now open via The Slow Fashion Market website.

I love my stuff. I LOVE my clothes, jewellery and bags. I love how much joy my vintage things bring me. But even us collectors and hoarders need to occasionally do a cull to make room for more treasures.

I can’t be bothered with that ‘turn the coat hanger around and if you haven’t worn it in 6 months get rid of it’ type advice. Instead, I’ve put together my top 5 tips for decluttering your wardrobe without being too ruthless.

  1. One-by-One
    Consider every single piece of clothing/jewellery/accessories that you have. It’s probably best to set aside at least half a day (or a full day if you have a lot). I like the Konmari idea of considering each item and question whether it sparks joy. 
  2. Keep the things that are special to you
    When considering each piece, put back in your wardrobe all the non-negotiables. Your go-to black dress, your favourite shoes, your everyday clothes you wear to work, that sort of things. When it comes to vintage, sometimes you’ll never find that special piece again – I get it! 
  3. Say goodbye to those ill-fitting garments
    Now deal with the leftovers. What to say goodbye to:
    Unless it’s a rare or valuable collector’s item, get rid of things that don’t fit you anymore. Often, ill-fitting clothes are unflattering anyway, so let it spark joy for someone else but letting it go and sell these things at the market. The same goes with anything that is uncomfortable to wear, jeans are the worst for me. And Pretty shoes that hurt like hell have to go! 
  4. Get rid of the samey-samey surplus
    Now consider if you have items that are really similar to each other as you probably just need to keep one version. For example, I have about five glomesh bags, but really, I have one favourite and that’s my go-to. The others I can sell. Put back your favourite version and say goodbye to your least-favourite. As you do this step, it gets easier with each piece you look at to know ‘yay or ‘nay’. 
  5. Sort out the leftovers
    Now it’s time to sort out the stuff that’s going into piles.
  • PILE ONE: This is the pile of excellent-items you’ll take to Round She Goes. (Also, when Round She Goes finishes at 3pm, there will be a a Red Cross donation bin).
  • PILE TWO: Anything that can go to the op shop now. This includes any cheap brands that have zero resell-value. Check brands on ebay and see whether they are selling (or not).
  • PILE THREE: Stuff for the bin. Don’t send damaged or stained clothing to the op shop, that’s just shifting the burden of tossing it to them. Sadly, if it can’t be fixed or handy as rags, it’s time to put these in the rubbish.

Now your wardrobe should be looking a bit thinner – how good does that feel, it’s so much better to look only at things you can wear anytime! I would aim to do this at least once a year.

It was such a treat to film with the lovely folks at Channel 7’s SA Weekender for a segment on preloved fashion.

Wanting to get out of a fashion rut, Kelly enlists the help of Emma Morris – the founder of the  Round She Goes Fashion Market.  Emma says that South Australia is one of the best places to find amazing fashion gems so she takes Kelly to two of her favourite shops.

Check out the segment here…

In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees.
So begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. FINAL PORTRAIT is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity.

 

FINAL PORTRAIT is in cinemas on 5 October 2017.

Anne (Diane Lane) is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to successful, driven but inattentive movie producer Michael (Alec Baldwin), she unexpectedly finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband (Arnaud Viard). What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a carefree two-day adventure replete with diversions involving picturesque sights, fine food and wine, humour, wisdom and romance, reawakening Anne’s senses and giving her a new lust for life.

Adelaide fashion market

Adelaide market friends! I’ve got some big news to share with you. 

After four fabulous years of running our event in Adelaide, I’ve decided it’s time for a change. Now change can be scary, but change can also be very, very exciting. And I think this change is definitely in the latter camp.

We’re moving to the Woodville Town Hall this year! Our first event there will be on Saturday 21 May! 

I’ve decided we need a new venue in Adelaide. And when I saw the Woodville Town Hall, I knew in my gut it was the perfect venue and location to be our new home. It’s vintage, its beautiful and so, so charming.

This move means that our Adelaide market events will be much more similar to our Melbourne and Sydney events which we always hold in ornate and beautiful town halls.

Things I love about the Woodville Town Hall:

  • It was recently renovated and restored to it’s ornate self. Built in 1927, the features inside are spectacular!
  • There is SO MUCH free parking! There is a huge car park directly across the road as well as behind the venue.
  • We will be able to serve you REAL coffee from our expert barista!
  • The market will be entirely on the ground floor (no stairs!) Yeeha!
  • It’s opposite the Woodville Railway Station so it’s very easy to access via public transport.
  • There is an ATM pretty much at the entrance! Ah! So easy!

Here is what the Woodville Town Hall looks like:

The Woodville Town Hall is at 74 Woodville Road, Woodville SA 5011. It is conveniently located just off Port Road, and only an 18 minute drive from the CBD (7.5 kms from the city too).

Isn’t it stunning! I can’t wait for May!

Based on an inspiring true story, Freeheld stars Julianne Moore and Ellen Page as a couple who, in their darkest hour, take on the biggest fight of their lives.

When police detective Laurel Hester (Moore) meets Stacie Andree (Page), they instantly form a connection. The couple fall deeply and unexpectedly in love, and before long, are building a life together. But when tragedy strikes and Laurel is diagnosed with cancer, she faces discrimination as government officials refuse to allow her to leave her pension, earned over 23 years of service, to Stacie. With the help of fellow detective Dane Wells (Michael Shannon) and larger-than-life activist Steven Goldstein (Steve Carell), Laurel and Stacie spend their last days together fighting to overturn the decision.

As the campaign for marriage equality gains momentum worldwide, Freeheld is a poignant reminder of the personal struggles at the heart of the movement. Moore and Page deliver powerful, heartfelt performances in this stirring tribute to an ordinary couple whose love and integrity compelled them to demand equal rights in an extraordinary act of courage.
Watch the trailer here. It’s in cinemas November 5.
