We're looking for clothing and accessories designed and made on the Sunshine Coast for a Gala Fashion Show and Dinner that will take place in conjunction with the 2017 Sunshine Coast Art Crawl.

From a 'slow clothes' approach--garments/accessories made from locally-sourced/hand-spun/hand-woven and hand-painted fabrics--to recycled or commercially-available materials; entries may be hand-knitted, crocheted, felted, sewn or otherwise crafted. Accessories: Hats, jewellery, handbags, shawls, etc. will also be featured.
