2018-07-22 12:30:00 2018-07-22 13:30:00 Australia/Brisbane Meet Jane Milburn Slow Clothing: Finding meaning in what we wear presents a compelling case for why we need to change the way we dress – to live lightly on Earth through the everyday practice of how we wear and care for our clothes. In an era dominated by passive consumption of cheap and synthetic fashion, Jane Milburn – sustainability consultant and founder of Textile Beat – arrived at the slow clothing philosophy by refashioning garments in her wardrobe to provide meaning and story. According to Jane, slow clothing reflects our own style and spirit, independent of fashion cycles, and supports us to buy thoughtfully and be original, authentic and resourceful. Join Jane as she discusses her journey to slow clothing and shares ideas you can easily implement. Books will be available for purchase on the day, or bring your copy from home for Jane to sign. To reserve your place, visit Eventbrite, or phone the library. Indooroopilly Library
