As the fabulous Lisa Curry stepped into Blackall Cultural Centre on her Aussie road trip inspiring health and wellbeing, Textile Beat can report her attention was immediately captured by our statement skirts.
While Lisa’s eyes were drawn to its colour and creativity, her decision to purchase this upcycled natural fibre garment demonstrates support for slow fashion as one small way to boost ecological health and reduce our carbon footprint.
Lisa’s Orange and Avocado History Skirt has a story to tell. It was handcrafted by Jane Milburn from at least 10 upcycled fabric sources including an Italian linen dress, silk shirt and tie, rayon vest, cotton scarf, floral cotton from Nana’s fabric box, vintage buttons and more.
History skirts are an original design and concept by Jane Milburn and Ele Cook of Textile Beat in Brisbane, Australia in 2013. Working with integrity, creativity and purpose, Textile Beat is inspiring the upcycling of natural fibres for pleasure, reward and sustainability.
