The Spirit of the Black Dress

Ten emerging designers add a sustainable twist to a timeless trend

This event has finished

The Spirit of the Black Dress, a not-for-profit project that helps emerging designers gain exposure and supports sustainable style across Australia, celebrates its fifth year with photos, film and ten gorgeous gowns selected for the 2013 collection. The finalists’ innovative designs reveal a glamourous side of sustainability as they mesh a contemporary conscience with one of the most timeless garments – the black dress. The exhibition is a part of the Melbourne Fashion Festival, which runs across the city for the next week.
