Take two

Fashion has long been a passion of mine.  After finishing uni, I actually began my career in fashion PR as a consultant and have also worked as in-house PR for David Jones where one of the highlights was meeting Akira Isogawa.  My all-time fashion hero is Coco Chanel - an innovator, originator and one of the first truly modern business women who revolutionised women's fashion.  I've dabbled more recently in eco-fashion and love that vintage clothing has become so popular.

There are a number of vintage clothing and clothing swap markets including the way we wear vintage fashion fairs, Melbourne vanity fair market, the clothing exchange and closer to home, the travelling take 2 market is being held this Sunday in Preston.

If you're wanting to know who's who in the world of eco-fashion - there is a fantastic online directory called How Big Is Your Eco run by fashion editor Matthew Paroz.  There's also a thought provoking feature article called 'economies of the underground - consumption, community and common sense' in the current issue of Peppermint magazine.  Related websites to visit include www.collaborativeconsumption.com and www.freecycle.org
