Senorita Awe Sumo Atelier Heart Warming During I D Xv Dunedin Fashion Week
Project 2014-02-23 13:23:08 +1300
Help me create a conscious Fashion experience in Dunedin during iD XV 2014.
The official opening of Dunedin’s first sustainable fashion hub. Zerowaste fashion practitioner Senorita AweSUMO and environmental designer Shigeko Iwamuro will open the doors to their newly established conscious fashion production and retail hub. Ceremonially raising the flag and opening their studio doors to the public, come and see how you can help save the planet, one garment at a time.
The opening will include music, a 3D working installation responding to fashion culture and the war on want, a flag raising ceremony courtesy of some theatrical surprise guests.
With a warm and welcoming atmosphere fashion can be personal, emotional and also environmentally sustainable and Senorita AweSUMO wants to showcase a more conscious solution to a global problem.
We would like to provide some nibbles, Tea and bubbles in celebration of this occasion.
My team is mostly voluntary and includes family and friends, my amazing supporters, Thanx U <3!!!! I am also hoping to engage with some Otago Polytechnic students to photograph and film the event.
If any one wants to that job still hasnt been filled!!! holla.

The easiest way to determine your hat size is by using the metric system.
The metric system uses a measurement in cm of the CIRCUMFERENCE of your head.
With a tape measure, measure around your head at the point where you would wear a hat - 1 cm above the ears, and around across the forehead.
The tape measure should not be too tight or too loose, but comfortable as you would expect a hat to be.
This measurement should always be rounded UP to the nearest cm to determine the metric hat size you should wear. When a tape measure is not available, use piece of string which can be measured after fitting it to the head.
