The EFWA Biennale
is
Sustainable Fashion Art and Design

Sustainability, Textile Art and Design, Culture, Innovation, Education

Join us for the EFWA Sustainable Fashion Art Biennale taking place in three of Australia’s major cities, Perth, Melbourne, and Brisbane in 2020.

This initiative will put a spotlight on traditional textile art and slow fashion creativity. Expect runway shows, open air and indoor exhibitions, textile sculptures, seminars, artist talks, and workshops dedicated to slow fashion and a more sustainable future.

A platform, an opportunity, and a place for fashion designers to fashionistas, art lovers to environmental activists, students or visitors, and those curiously searching for an alternative cultural experience, and ways to reduce their carbon footprint.

 

Our Story

In a world where fashion excess and hyper consumption dominate the scene, Eco Fashion Week Australia (EFWA) launched in 2017 and quickly became the largest eco fashion week in the world in terms of length, number of eco designers and events which were powered by local community and volunteers.

EFWA offered traditional runway shows in two states, Western Australia and Queensland to support and provide a platform for established, emerging and student eco fashion designers. EFWA hosted seminars in major Australian universities in partnership with several conservation organizations, international and national industry experts specialized in sustainability with the aim of educating the public about the importance of sustainability and slow fashion.

Now moving to more of an art and design focus, EFWA’s Sustainable Fashion Art & Design Biennale will be held in three major Australian cities in 2020 and will travel for international exhibitions to promote sustainability, fashion art, providing a wider platform to support and promote eco fashion artists and designers.
