Not exactly op shopping but...

Re-Loved Creations is a not for profit, co-operative venture started in 2009 by mother and daughter team Hanny and Lee Dewar.

For YOU ARE HERE, Re-Loved will be taking over ...a vacant shopfront and transforming it into a fashion mecca. The space will be used as a studio throughout the Canberra Festival, where designers will create and sell new garments in a co-operative pop-up shop. Designers participating in the event include; Lisa Barrett, Tamara Russell and Hanny Dewar’s own label, Hanny-d Creations. Under the label Tango & James, Lisa produces accessories, clothing and even furniture updated with her own fabric designs. Tamara Russell is a textile artist who uses recycled materials and free needle machine embroidery to create painterly textile designs.

You too can promote the importance of sustainable fashion by bringing along your unwanted clothing to Re-loved Creations Clothes Swap on Sunday March 20.

When: 6-9pm Friday 18 March, 10am-5pm Saturday 19 March, 10am-1pm Sunday 20 March
