Join us for bubbles & yummy nibbles from the SHERWOOD, a fashion show with a difference and an inspiring CONVERSATION on sustainable design with three incredible women:
Peri Drysdale - Founder of Untouched World
Trudie Millar - Trudie Millar Personal Stylist
Fred Gulchers - My Good Emporium
Two of our local fashionistas, Wanaka based personal stylist Trudie Millar and Queenstown’s blogger journalist Frederique Gulcher, are holding a unique, fun, thought-provoking discussion on how we produce and consume fashion in Aotearoa, with events in Wanaka and Queenstown, as part of the ONE Summit festival.
Peri Drysdale, founder of Untouched World, will be talking about her personal journey towards creating one of our most emblematic, global, and sustainable New Zealand brands. In 2007 Untouched World was the first clothing company in the world to be accredited by the United Nations to use the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainability emblem on their products. In May 2015, Untouched World was invited to Paris to assist in the setup of the UNESCO Global Action Programme on Education for Sustainable Development and consulted with the United Nations on the outcomes of the Decade for Sustainable Development (UNDESD). Come along to find out more about Peri’s incredible journey. Some of Untouched World’s beautiful clothes will also be modelled.
As well as showcasing Untouched World’s designs, Trudie and Frederique will take a look at how these values are being integrated into the fashion industry showcasing other New Zealand designers, such as ReCreate. They will finish off the evening with a fashion show, giveaways from featured brands, and a fun demonstration on how an old wardrobe can be upcycled with style.
