Event cancellation

Due to poor weather, Revive Second-hand Fashion Festival 2020 has been cancelled.

The Revive Second-hand Fashion Festival is on again in 2020, returning for its fifth year on Sunday 25 October — just in time to revive your summer wardrobe.

The one-day event, which has moved to a new home at the Brisbane Powerhouse, celebrates preloved fashion and encourages Brisbane to reduce textile waste to landfill.

Revive will feature runway shows by local stylists and Revive regulars Sally Steele and Hannah Close, along with newcomer and all-round colour queen, Hattie Nixon. Also featured in this year's event will be Brisbane's best local charity op shops and second-hand retailers, informative workshops, live entertainment and delicious bites from some of Brisbane's best food trucks. This is an event not to be missed!
