Think pre-loved

Pela’Studio will sell a gorgeous range of hats by Mich Dulce

Some people shudder at the thought of shopping at second-hand markets or in op shops. They truly do shudder.

If you fall into that category, consider a shift in the way you think. Instead of ‘second hand’, think ‘pre-loved’ and see markets as an opportunity to explore, have a bit of fun and be part of the circular economy.

Cathie Wall, who runs several markets under the ‘Canberra Markets’ banner, says it’s amazing what quality items and big brand labels pop up, including Coach, Kate Spade, Anne Klein, MIMCO, Gucci and more.

‘We regularly see high fashion, and some new items even have the original tags  attached to them,’ says Cathie. ‘Many stallholders focus on selling new or quality pre-loved pieces they no longer want or wear because they’ve changed shape, style of lifestyle. It’s not about getting rid of junk.

Tomorrow, the 360 Fashion Market is a chance to see what you can uncover.

Pela’Studio will be at 360 selling new hats perfect for racing season, and at great prices. Pieces designed by two well-known milliners will be for sale, including Mich Dulce whose creations have been worn by Lady Gaga and Georgia May Jagger. Each is made from ethical Philippine raw materials with traditional European millinery techniques. Pela’Studio will also sell pieces by milliner Dinu Bodiciu. Bodiciu, from Singapore, who is listed along the top milliners in the world. Pela’Studio will also sell super stylish shoes from the likes of T&F Slack Shoemakers from London and WXY from Taiwan.

‘Some stallholders are one-time sellers at our markets,’ says Cathie. ‘They’ve decluttered and are selling fashion items to make a bit of money. Others sell as a regular hobby and some sell clothing, jewellery, shoes, bags and accessories for a living.’

While many stallholders are from Canberra, others come from interstate, including Chic to Chic Boutique from Albury, who returns to the 360 Fashion Market for the second time with some super stylish pieces across many styles.

For the first time, Canberra’s That Old Dog will be at the market, having sniffed out some quality high-fashion men’s wear that doesn’t cost the Earth, including brands like Ralph Lauren and Dolce and Gabbana.

360 Fashion Market always has  great retro and vintage fashion for men and women. Ducky Shincracker returns with  fabulous finds. Recycology returns with amazing vintage, all carefully curated. Romance Revisited has a stall for the first time.

360 Fashion Market is on this Sunday, 10 am to 3pm, The Fitters Workshop, Kingston. Free entry. Plenty of parking.

Other pre-loved markets operated by Cathie include the Canberra Fashion Market (24 Nov) and the Canberra Kids Market (17 Nov).

It’s in the Bag!

… with Kerri-Anne Anderson—by Aine Dowling

Kerri anne banner jpgThe Three Sixty Fashion Market is an explosion of treasure—it’s like the genie popped out of the bottle and showered the building with a blaze of colour and design—from op-shop to vintage and exclusive designer fashion right through to gorgeous delicate jewellery and accessories. At their last market we caught up with the lovely Kerri-Anne Anderson who makes a gorgeous range of bags, totes, purses, clutches and wallets—sustainable, ethical, and what’s more, all made and designed in Canberra.

The bags are made from scraps and off-cuts that Kerri-Anne has collected over the years, though some new material does appear from time-to-time. The quality of the bags is amazing and all the bags are unique—one of a kind, so you’re getting something really individual. So what does it take to make these lovely items?

“The average bag takes about five or six hours to cut,” says Kerri-Anne, “plus about another 15 to 20 hours on top of that as the bags are made as a single design from three different colours. I also make bags to order as well as fulfilling requests for different straps or extra pockets. My bags are one of a kind so no two are the same.

“I’ve always loved handbags and since learning to sew they’ve been my favourite item to make. I studied Fashion Design and Production in Melbourne and the course taught me all the skills I needed to take handbag from design to the finished product, but it’s difficult to get a job in the industry so I decided to make my own handbag label instead. I enjoy the challenge of mixing fashion, functionality, and useability.”

Kerri-Anne’s bags range from brightly coloured and pattern mixes, to very trendy (and corporate) monochrome, and serviceable denim, with a terrific men’s/unisex range. “I originally started out making bags that I would personally use, but have since branched out in both theme and colour palette. I guess my target market is anyone who enjoys stylish fashion and likes to match their bags, or even make a statement that allows them to stand out.”

You can find Kerri-Anne at the Three Sixty Fashion Market (next market is 22 November), and on Facebook, Etsy, and Instagram.

360 degrees at Kingston!

Pre-loved or designer fashion—you can get it all at 360!

By Aine Dowling

360 header Three Sixty Fashion Market, aka 360FM, opened up shop in the Kingston Fitter’s Workshop in October 2014 and is already becoming the place for ethical, sustainable, and vintage (pre-loved) clothing and accessories. Its location is ideal—smack between the Canberra Glassworks and The Old Bus Depot Markets—attracting visitors from both, as well as standing on its own as a unique outlet for bargain designer items.

LFW paid its first visit to the busy market on Sunday and we were impressed with the range of goods on offer. The pre-loved stuff is very high quality but not high-priced; verified by the lovely Fletcher Jones tartan kilt I picked up for less than $40 at Hummingbird Vintage. There are a number of former FASHFEST designers there including Dissonance, and Audrey Blue, plus hand-made jewellery from Peonynpearl, bags from Sash & Belle, candles, and books and toys.

Here’s a snapshot of what’s on offer. Check 360FM website for their next market day.
