Made Fashion show

Carriageworks

Sydney, AUS

November 11-13, 2016

In essence MADE is a community and creative hub that originated in New York City. It was incarnated with guidance and oversight from the mayor’s office and lives within the city’s Economic Development Corporation.

In collaboration with the private sector: it develops, creates and implements a wide array of specific programs to bring together players from the realms of fashion design, manufacturing and education, based on principles of transparency, sustainability, ethical practices and local consumption. The community set out to raise awareness not just about looking pretty but also of the social, environmental and economic benefits that are “made” (see what I did there?) locally.

The Sydney incarnation of MADE was comprised of a 2-day festival celebrating the cross-section of fashion and skateboarding with fashion events, skate events and a range of retail pop-up shops, many of them having made the trek to terra australis for the first time:

Faith Connexion brought their androgyne, art infused collections. Mademe catered to girls gravitating towards skate couture, Sydney DJ collective Pelvis exhibited their prints, Pageant bid aesthetic nods to sportswear while advocating a fresh take on feminism; the Danish street wear brand Soulland brought head- and outerwear to the table; Distal Phalanx stirred things up a bit with their black metal inspired logo and collection; Emma Mulholland sold exclusively selected pieces from her latest collection; Lithuanian born and Sydney-based Egyboy wore his influences on his sleeves with often explicitly quoting and signifying the likes of Jeff Koons, Karl Lagerfeld and Warhol; Double Rainbouu leaned heavily on the laid-back, trippy side of things and Melbournian jewellery label POMS showed their unique collection of bling and sunglasses.

DJ Sets serenaded the proceedings, which were rounded out by fashion shows, skate competitions along with sustenance and drinks from a range of food trucks, which made for an enjoyable, relaxed weekend for which contemporary multi-arts centre and heritage listed Carriageworks site as usual served as a perfect location.
