Associating with a well-known name has long been a way for big brands to create excitement and exclusivity around a collection. Diverging from this, a new generation of collaborations is seeing like minded creatives across art, fashion and design join forces to drive change on issues of sustainability and social justice. Bringing together artists and designers, this panel discusses how political and environmental ideas can translate across art, fashion and design. What kind of impact do these collaborations have? And how important are they for brands looking to connect with young consumers?
This event is presented as part of the Ideas Program at Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival 2020.
