An interactive, educational – DIY or DIE – fashion show!

A tonne of clothing and textile waste, otherwise destined for landfill, has been salvaged and a Fast Fashun wonderland in a pavilion in the Fitzroy Gardens is waiting for you to explore.

Tenfingerz and Famous Artist Sebastian Berto are hosting this free experience as part of Midsumma Festival and MKA Pavilion.

FAST FASHUN – An interactive, educational – DIY or DIE – fashion show!

Fashion together an ensemble from the waste and then showcase it in a runway show happening every hour on the hour.

Open to all ages and all skill levels. Audiences are welcome to just view the sculptural installation and the runway shows, or participate in up-cycling the fashion waste assisted by local costume, fashion and art makers.

Fast Fashun is hosted by Tenfingerz and Famous Artist Sebastian Berto. They have been collaborating on projects for the past 6 years. Through visually impactful work and audience involvement, they aim to use their combined skillset to create art that is a tool for social change.
