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.
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.
The evening event will commence at 5:45pm with food and drink available from local exhibitors, followed by the movie screening at 6:45pm. Q&A conversations begin at 8:30pm and the night concludes at 9pm.
