Conscious living, up-cycling, fashion forward has never been so relevant as it is today. Join The KZNSA Gallery on Thursday 3 May for the exhibition opening of Fashion Revolution: #WhoMadeMyClothes? at 17h30. There will be a LAB Talks at 16h00 before the official opening, where you can engage in depth on the subject.
We are people from all around the world who make the fashion industry work.
We are the people who wear clothes.
And we are the people who make them.
We are you.
We are the 'pro-fashion protesters' because we love gashion and want to see it become a force for good. We celebrate fashion as a positive influence while also scrutinising industry practices and raising awareness of the fashion industry's most pressing issues.
Be Curious. Find Out. Do Something.

Pattern Nation is a collaborative and inclusive platform aimed at connecting artists who embrace bold colour and pattern globally. PatternNation was founded by Vancouver Canada based artist and fashion designer Cydney Eva. PatternNation collaborations engage with many indigenous and radical thinking artists globally. As an act of decolonization through art PatternNation shoots, events, video's and clothing aim to create conversation around identity politics. Part of the platforms mandate is to create more space for inter-generational women and people of colour in fashion and to facilitate cross cultural sharing through art. The aim of PatternNation is to work directly with artists from various backgrounds and create content that subverts the usual consumption of Caucasian minimalist work in the art and fashion worlds.
