What Ken Be Done? Celebrating 80s Fashion from Australia and doing good.

Most Australians have heard of 1980s artist and fashion designer Ken Done. Most Australians haven't heard of 80s fashion collector Jackie Ruddock or the Melbourne based social enterprise The Social Studio. So, Good Fashion for Good is a project i've been working on with my partner, for 365 days she will be wearing Ken Done's 80's fashion and along the way encouraging people to do *good fashion for good*. If that doesn't sound like a big deal, first check out www.goodfashionforgood.com for some examples of Ken Done's finest fashion from the 1980s. Its going to be a colourful year for us.

"Craft is the Function"

is a short film I made for inclusion in a film contest run by fashion ingenue/blog superstar Tavi Gevinson (previously on Metafilter). It's about the crossroads of knitting and DIY fashion, and features interviews with Caroline of Sock Pixie, Carolyn and Jade of Wool & the Gang, Beth Hahn of Miss Flitt, and Jen of Blue Alvarez designs. Also, it was shot on the toy Vidster camera. If my short gets enough votes, it could be screened during Paris Fashion Week.
