The Three Sixty Markets will hold its next event on Sunday the 24th of May, from 10.00 am to 3.00 pm, at the Fitters Workshop, Kingston Foreshore. Shoppers will find a plethora of pre-loved designer labels, quality vintage and new labels from up-and-coming local designers and artisans.
The market attracts a large variety of stallholders, bringing together a vibrant array of sellers, designers and craftspeople. Cutting-edge couture rubs shoulders with lovingly collated vintage collections; handmade jewellery and accessories complement the range of clothes on offer.
“Our stallholders share the same passion we do,” says Market Director, Mel O’Brien, “for fashion that reflects quality design and tailoring, that is rewarding to try on and to wear and makes the wearer feel good. Many of the items for sale have a creative point of difference.”
Mel’s experience with fashion has been developed over several years with her own retro and vintage clothing stall, Librarian Chic. “I am inspired by the stories and history that become interwoven into pre-loved garments,” says Mel, who has worked as a professional librarian, “for me, running a whole recycled fashion market was a natural, next step.”
“The Three Sixty Fashion Market is also dedicated to sustainability,” says the market’s Creative Director, Nathan Harris, “we believe that fashion can and should be ecologically and ethically sustainable. People express themselves in their choice of fashion and this includes their values and ideals. At Three Sixty, you can make positive fashion choices in an atmosphere that is fun, relaxed and stylish. Style is not just about looking good, it’s about feeling good.”
