Mixing classic couture looks with daring lingerie details, fashion designer…
A favorite with fans at Vancouver Fashion Week, fashion designer and visual artist Zuhal Kuvan-Mills returns to the international runway scene with the launch of Eco Fashion Week Australia this fall.
After showcasing her eco-friendly couture designs around the globe, Kuvan-Mills has now set her sights on promoting Australian and international sustainable artists and designers from her hometown of Perth.
The inaugural Eco Fashion Week Australia is scheduled to run from November 23 – 27, 2017 and will feature designers that practice sustainable, ethical production either by recycling or upcycling or through the use of organic and natural materials which have no carbon footprint.

Located in the historic port city of Fremantle, a part of the Perth metropolitan area well known for its maritime history, Victorian architecture and remnants from Australia’s past as a British penal colony, the magnificent Victoria Hall will be the host venue for the weeklong event.
The schedule of events includes national and international runway shows, design and textile exhibitions, pop-up shops, workshops and seminars to promote sustainability as well as the Anita Moon Awards of Excellence and the “Style it Green” challenge.
Having proven time and time again at Vancouver Fashion Week that eco fashion can be as glamorous and stylish as its fast fashion counterparts while remaining socially and environmentally responsible, founder Kuvan-Mills’ goal is to encourage consumers, designers and even nations to consider slow fashion which is both ethical and ecologically sustaining for our planet.
Eco fashion Week Australia is now accepting applications from designers wishing to participate in this historic event.
The proud sponsors of Eco Fashion Week Australia are Green Embassy, Fly by Night Musicians Club, Taylors Art & Coffee House, The Bahamas Weekly, Eluxe Magazine, Peppermint Magazine, Olio by Marilyn, Style Drama, Vivify Textiles, Dowerin GWN Machinery Field Days and Loig’s Music Lab.
