The True Cost


You are invited to watch the acclaimed documentary, which explores the impact of fashion on people and the planet. Following that, you can take part of a Q&A discussion, with two well-known names in Melbourne's sustainable fashion industry.

The True Cost: A Documentary Film

Do you know who made your clothes? Do you understand the impacts your fashion choices have on the environment? The True Cost documentary tells it exactly how it is. From the brightest catwalks to the darkest slums, this is a film that brings the not-so-pretty underworld of fashion to the surface.

The widely acclaimed film features interviews with big names in the fashion industry: Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva. This isn't a fancy fashion film, but is a true insight into the lives of those who make your clothes, and the impact your clothing choices have on a global scale.

Q&A Discussion Panel

Don't rush off home after you see The True Cost documentary. In this special event screening, you are invited to take part in an 'after-screening' conversation with two well-known names in Melbourne's sustainable fashion industry; Rechelle Coombes, Founder, Socielle Co and Leeyong Soo, Fashion Writer.

Your Comment
That sounds a little different but important too. Almost everything we acquire has an environmental impact and never more so when we acquire what we do not really need.
