An exhibition celebrating the influence of Fashion Design Council is being showcased at the RMIT Design Hub in Melbourne.

High Risk Dressing / Critical Fashion examines how the Fashion Design Council created a legacy and how it relates to contemporary practice today.

The Design Hub has been transformed into a set for a month-long series of fashion presentations, performances, films, publications and residencies.

The Fashion Design Council, active during the ‘80s and early ‘90s in Melbourne, was a membership-based organisation that promoted avant-garde Australian fashion. 

Original Fashion Design Council material has been pulled for the exhibition from the RMIT Design Archives, making it that much more special.

Worth checking out.
