“Textile” @ House of Ezis, Fortitude Valley
The event was hosted at House of Ezis, a Brisbane-based custom-made evening & bridal gown label with a boutique in Fortitude Valley. This time around we learned about innovative resources for manufacturing textiles, but also about contemporary / ethical ways of making and selling fashion.
Speakers of the night:

Ronny Matzat – creative superhero and founder of “DSGN Kartell” as well as co-founder of “Biolastics” / One of only a few young designers who intuitively and holistically designs with environmental principles and knowledge resulting in innovative solutions. He provided insight into his pioneering work of using textile glass for wall coverings as well as bioplastics for fashion items.
