Eve Maxwell

Ethical Fashion Coordinator

Eve is currently studying a Bachelor of Textile Design, majoring in woven textiles, and a Certificate in Clothing Production at Melbourne’s RMIT. She hopes to use her degree to promote more considerate and sustainable ways people can engage with textiles and adornment.

In 2015, she spent three months living and teaching English at Mae La Refugee Camp in Thailand, and subsequently raised funds for the camp by selling traditional, hand woven bags. Over the past year, Eve has developed her organising and advocacy practice through her role as Ethical Fashion Co-ordinator at Moral Fairground and through volunteering with Stop Adani Melbourne. She now co-runs New Mode Collective, which aims to empower consumers and emerging designers through education and multidisciplinary, collaborative projects.
