Through campuses in Broadmeadows, Docklands, Richmond, Moonee Ponds and Essendon, Kangan Institute provides training services to students, industries and businesses throughout metropolitan Melbourne and beyond.
Fashion courses are offered at Kangan Institute’s Centre of Fashion and Creative Industries in Richmond. Programs include fashion design, millinery, hair, barbering and beauty.
The Richmond campus is also home to Kangan Institute’s Textile and Fashion Hub which offers sampling and short run manufacturing services, industry relevant training courses for students, designers and small businesses, as well as customised industry training for manufacturers, and a series of exciting short courses.
Ethical clothing, production and sustainability principles are a significant part of fashion courses at Kangan Institute, with ethical and sustainable projects incorporated into regular training curriculum and on showcase at various fashion events.
Kangan Institute CEO Sally Curtain said the ECA accreditation was good news for both students and industry.
“Kangan Institute’s Textile and Fashion Hub and our fashion courses at Richmond campus are closely aligned with ethical and sustainable design principles so we can support our students and industry clients as they work towards a positive fashion future,” she said.
“Accreditation by Ethical Clothing Australia is a fantastic endorsement of our ethical and sustainable ethos.
“The slow fashion movement, which calls for greater social and environmental responsibility in design and production, is gaining momentum globally.
“ECA’s accreditation gives our students and other hub users the confidence that their garments are being created with quality in mind and in a fair manner, and this adds value to the products they make.”
