Last year I took part in Wear the Change, a fundraising event for The Social Outfit in Newtown. Occurring during Refugee Week, the funds go to supporting women from refugee communities with employment and training in the fashion industry. It’s a celebration of the creativity and strengths of our refugee communities working in the garment industry right here in Sydney.
Last year I took a bomber jacket and wore it all week long. You can take a look at my Dressing for Change article from last year to see where it all started for me.
This week I am challenging myself and will wear the same shirt 5 different ways. Follow me on Facebook and Instagram to see how I style my outfits and my sustainable fashion choices. You can also follow the hashtag #WearTheChange2021 to see who else is participating in Wear The Change this year. I’m sure you’ll see some familiar faces.
I’d love your support if you are able, every little bit helps continue a terrific sustainable social enterprise and empowering women new to Australia.
It’s not too late if you’d like to get involved or want to support Wear The Change and The Social Outfit. Visit their website and invest in some sustainable fashion. You can still join in the challenge too. Or simply like, comment on and share posts about Wear the Change to help us reach more people and reach our fundraising goals.
