Eco-fashion on show this week

 New Zealand's first ethical fashion show will take to the catwalk at the Sustainable City Showcase this Friday. Bringing a youthful funk to the stage, emerging new designers from NZ Fashion Tech will demonstrate how clothes destined for landfill can be upcycled into sustainable and stylish clothing.

The designers showcasing their summer collections include Miranda Brown, Sitka, We'ar and Starfish.

Rachel Brown of the Sustainable Business Network, which is organising the fashion show, says it will bust through the "hemp and sandals" barrier.

The Ethical Fashion Show is part of the Sustainable City Showcase, a three-day event at The Cloud.

When: Friday November 23, 6-7pm
Where: The Cloud, Queen's Wharf
Tickets: $30, including a glass of sustainable bubbles and an eco goodie bag
