Nimbin's fashion kaleidoscope
A kaleidoscope of Nimbin’s creativity and talent will hit the catwalk during this year’s annual Nimbin Fashion Show. On November 12 and 13 Nimbin Town Hall will be filled with wild and wonderful costumes, some of them made from felted tissue silk, recycled Glomesh handbags or knitted and crocheted fabrics.
Show organiser and fashion designer Christina Chester said the show would be fun and lots of young designers would be showing their collections for the first time. Local designer Sylvia will show her spontaneous ‘Speed Makeover’ and Nimbin Central School’s textile students will be showcasing their fresh ideas. Emah Silberstein, a new designer from Lismore will showcase her ‘Flipperty Tipperty Gibberty Collection’ of wearable art that emphasises the infinite possibilities of using recycled materials, while Janice Potter parades her fashions made from natural fibres such as hemp and cotton.
“It’s about people helping and supporting each other in a unique show without big budget,” Ms Chester said.
