Have you heard about the Hey Fatty & Friends Fair?

Hey Fatty & Friends Fair

Sunday 16th September, 12-5pm
St Brigid’s Parish Hall
378 Nicholson St, North Fitzroy
$5 entry

That’s right – it’s going to be a giant fat fashion fair in Melbourne! With vintage, recycled, and independent fashion and accessories! Chub Republic will have a stall, and all proceeds from that will go toward rad fatty projects in Melbourne. There will also be stalls from Hey Fatty themselves, the excellent Bombshell Vintage, and – I am *dying* of anticipation for this one – Gisela Ramirez will be debuting her new collection!!!

The day will be hosted by the incredible Kelli Jean Drinkwater! There will be catwalk shows with the chance for everyone at the fair to strut their stuff! And cupcakes! And Logicbunny Photography (who is the absolute best and most fun!) will have a pop-up studio!

All the deets at Hey Fatty and on Facebook!

See you there, fatties!
