Young designers from the Fashion & Textiles program at BLOCK Studios (Yarra Youth Services – YYS) have explored contemporary themes such as culture, sustainability, technology and space exploration in order to imagine how these themes will shape and influence the future world’s fashion choices.

Through this exploration, they have designed and created garments or pieces of wearable art inspired by their vision of the future. The finished garments will be modelled in a fashion extravaganza alongside reputable brands ‘Gun Shy’ and ‘Get Yourself Dressed’. Live performances by Gengee will accompany.
