Independent fashion boutique Contra will host local creative duo Homejob this month as the label launches its new collection, Secret Maypole Society. The celebration event will kick off from 6:00–9:00 pm on Friday September 13 at 139 Charlotte Street, Brisbane City. Crafted entirely from secondhand, locally sourced materials and silks donated by a now-defunct cushion business, every piece in the new range is a one-off creation. The event will also see the release of a special collaborative tee and a bunch of classic linen styles.
To celebrate the launch, Homejob will unveil several recent collaborative projects by Kaomoji Ceramics and a film produced with Charlie Hillhouse and Theo Landon. The Secret Maypole Society collection features an iridescent top repurposed from a pre-loved ball gown, a crochet jumper crafted from handmade doilies and two ruffle clam shell tops featuring silk straps. The pieces will remain on display at Contra for the whole weekend, ending Sunday September 15. Find more details on the Facebook event page and stay tuned to Contra and Homejob’s socials for updates.
