Cadia Belante

Cadia Belante is a Melbourne-based fashion label focusing on sustainable clothing production. Designer Cadia Belante re-circulates consumable items while reducing the amount of waste ending up in landfill. The discovery of large quantities of surplus sleeping bags in second-hand stores inspired Cadia to explore how to re-purpose for the world of fashion design. The designer then started collecting interesting but obsolete items to experiment with. She now uses items that would otherwise be tossed away to create her signature fashion. Cadia Belante is inspired by challenging all boundaries within fashion design. This innovative designer blurs the lines between art and fashion, incorporating playful prints and bold colours.
