Launched in 2009, Sustainable Couture has been passionate about staging events and creative activities which use recycled materials and at the same time promote Australian art and design and stimulate the global conversation about sustainability, which is a growing challenge across the globe.


Founders, Franca Frederiksen and Philomena Hali have been joined by a growing group of committed designers and volunteers who, together, coordinate and host the group’s annual art and design events and activities which are recognised locally and nationally for their quirkiness, inventive use of surprising materials and engaging approach to the issue of sustainability.
