Wendy Sharpe Collaboration with Social Outfit

July 20, 2023

The Social Outfit’s primary focus is to remove barriers to training and employment for refugee and new migrant women. They also contribute to the circular economy and positively impact public discourse, advocating for better employment pathways for refugees and more ethical, sustainable fashion industry.

Developed from original artwork ‘Girl’s Night Out’ and other various pieces patch-worked together by Wendy Sharpe, these 100% crepe de chine silk Kimono style evening jackets are a move towards creating wearable art in a sustainable manner crafted by Social Outfit’s fabulous refugee sewing team.
This garment celebrates the new found freedom refugee women have found in Australia.
