Be Iconic

POV: You're in your Iconic Era... A fashion revolution.

It’s a FABULOUS ADAPTIVE FASHION TAKEOVER. We are welcoming everybody to swagger, glide, stomp, crawl, or dance down the transformed Piazza runway. Join us and all your friends for a groundbreaking showcase of sensational style and inclusivity! We want to join the textile renegades redefining the runway, bringing diverse bodies in iconic silhouettes to the centre of this moment.

You can wake up and show up, in your wildest dreams, or attend our community-based workshops to design, make and innovate, and for the seven weeks prior we have our incredible artists to support your creative visions. This event celebrates diverse identities, bodies and genders, fierce joy, disability and justice, neurodivergence and agency. It's a movement towards a more inclusive, adaptive, extraordinary and sustainable future.

Fashion Collab is a collective of creatives who have diverse lived experiences and a broad array of artistic practices. Some of us love couture and some of us love comfort, and this event can be a space for all of us.

Every Body is welcome to join our free creative workshops to make your own creation. Workshop Registrations will open on 12th June. Check back here for details.
