Welcome to A Fitting Connection | ReFashionedCreate fashion. Wear it. Waste it.
This is the linear fashion model that A Fitting Connection is helping to end.
Create fashion. Wear it. ReMake it. Recycle it.
That's more like it!
A Fitting Connection is facilitating behavior change with its range of purposefully designed workshops and programs that engages our community and educates them on the problem and the importance of being more purposeful in their textile ownership and end-of-life disposal.
With their ReFashioned label products and 'Fundraising With Purpose' initiatives, A Fitting Connection aims to close the loop on a local scale, creating a more circular fashion model, where textiles get reused through upcycling .
ReFashioned Online Shop
Using pre-loved textiles that have been reclaimed locally, the ReFashioned label provides an ever-changing range of limited-edition fashion and gift items made from upcycled textiles.
Products include scarves made from discarded knitwear, and handy wrist bands with a key pocket for wearing during exercise, created out of old activewear. There are also children’s fabric art kits, which use repurposed sheets as their canvas.
Fundraising With Purpose
This initiative allows local organisations to raise money in a sustainable, feel-good way, while helping divert textiles from landfill. Firstly, organisations can they receive funds by donating materials, then they raise additional funds by onselling the upcycled products created.
To make sure the products sold are relevant to their community, A Fitting Connection can work with the fundraising organisation to develop items that are just right – such as those handy wrist bands for joggers, or fabric art kits for school children.
Want To Join The Fashion Upcycling Revolution?
If you are a Melbourne-based fashion or textile seller who has excess stock you would like to recycle rather than waste, then A Fitting Connection would love to hear from you. There may be an opportunity to take those extra fabrics and turn them into something new that can be sold by you or others.
Or if you are a Melbourne-based organisation in search of an environmentally sustainable fundraiser, please get in contact to find out more about the Fundraising With Purpose program.
