Football and Fashion

It was a busy time on Friday night with so many Brooklyn football kids hanging out and playing as they waited for their photos to be taken. Just terrific to have BNU hire the space for this broad reaching event – and the photo taking itself went really well – over 300 kids went through very smoothly.   BNU got a bar license and Garage Project and the Brooklyn Bar and Bistro helped out with supplies which was a great experiment.  Kids were offered sushi, chippies and BBQ sausages and flavoured water thanks to the Healthy Future Families trust –  a nice change from soft drinks.

Coming up on Saturday 9 July at 7pm – ReDunn Upcycled Fashion Celebration

We celebrate local up-cycling fashion legend Janet Dunn (ReDunn Fashion) with a parade of her  clothing from the collection of Barbarian Productions. Janet (currently working at the Southern Landfill) will also speak briefly about her kaupapa as a designer with re-cycling, re-purposing and re-using clothes and materials, and will introduce her new winter collection – for sale.

Tickets at the door – entry is $10 waged $5 low or unwaged or $2 for under-10s. Entry includes a glass of mulled wine.

Wait -if you show up in an Janet Dunn original then you get in free! Wellington City Mayor Celia Wade Brown models a coat below!
