The Virtuous & Vicious Cycles of Fashion


I wanted to share the most amazing experienced I have had over the weekend. I took part in a two-day workshop facilitated by Fabian Hirose called The Virtuous & Vicious Cycles of Fashion. This is a ground-breaking workshop which I believe is much needed in the fashion industry.

I was quite  nervous about attending the workshop, as I’m not that comfortable with group participatory  scenarios. But I must say it has been one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life, in regards to connecting with other industry professionals, in a warm and supportive manner.

I highly recommend the workshop, and the support system that encourages personal growth within the industry, relevant  to your own personal work experiences. Besides this, I’ve met and connected with an amazing array of people in the group who all shared their professional experiences.

This is a ‘must’ experiential workshop, I have come away with renewed faith in humanity, the industry and a new eye to face the future knowing that this type of support exists.

Thank you to Fabian Hirose, Barbara Mastoroudes, Damien Cornford,  Graham and Caryn Franklin and all the participants. This has been an amazing journey of self discovery through the lens of fashion.
