Sustainable fashion is an ever-evolving term used to describe a commitment to ethical production, responsible resourcing and natural processes. This system of practice aims to produce garments that do not deplete renewable resources or pollute during manufacture, are able to be reabsorbed into the environment and maintain value and significance to the wearer.

Today, there is a myriad of ways to embrace sustainable fashion and support eco-conscious designers. Consider this exhibition a starting point, as we highlight makers dedicated to sustainable practice and suggest more ethical and environmentally conscious ways to enjoy fashion.

EVERGREEN will feature works by designers such as Julia Knüpfer, Holly McQuillan and Georgia McCorkill.
