   Fashion Takes First FPlace at Market
orget fast fashion and make the swap to sustainable clothing at the Brisbane North Fashion Market this month.
Second-hand garments, shoes and accessories will be on display when the market returns to Wavell Heights Community Hall, hosted by Her Wardrobe Markets.
Founder and Director Natalie D’Alessandro said interest in sustainable fashion was growing.
“If you look at the statistics on how people search for fashion, sustainable fashion has increased by ten-fold in the past couple of years,” Natalie said. “In terms of sustainability, there’s not really anywhere else you can go apart from second- hand fashion.
“I like to say our markets are all about making second-hand fashion the easy first choice for people.”
Sellers can purchase an indoor or outdoor stall to sell items that fit under the sustainable umbrella.
“Anyone who has excess items in their wardrobe is welcome to join us, and anything handmade by local creators and makers,” Natalie said. “If people can turn their expression of creativity into a side hustle or better yet, a main source of income, we are all about that.”
Natalie said stalls were still available and encouraged people to share with friends. “It’s a great way to spend your morning by clearing out your wardrobe, making money and doing your bit for the planet.”

  I was proud to recently announce the six winners of my Aspley Local Legend Awards for Queensland Day 2021.
In early June, I put out the call to schools, community groups and members of our community to
nominate exceptional community members who deserve recognition of their acts.
The winners included: Sharlene, who was nominated for exceptional service to the Craigslea State School community through the School Sensitivity Unit and many other roles; Robyn, who is the lead educator at C&K Chermside West, nominated by many parents for her transformation teaching abilities and the brilliant care she provided to their children on a daily basis; Holly, who is an exceptional volunteer leader with Aspley District Girl Guides, leading two units and is always the first to lend a hand; Tara, who is the Marchant Park P&C president and has devoted full-time hours to supporting the kindy and pursuing new projects; Harley, who is treasurer of Aspley Classes for Seniors and Secretary of Boondall Neighbourhood Watch; and finally, Tamzine, who is a teacher aide at C&K Geebung Kindy and is extremely passionate about caring for all the children at Geebung kindy, and who took initiative to check up on families during the height of COVID-19 last year.
They are all well-deserving recipients of the title ‘local legend’!
