Petra Richardson

Common Threads Advocate

Petra has a passion for saving amazing op shop finds; bypassing landfill to create wardrobe favourites.

Her love of beautiful fabrics and excellent tailoring has grown through studies in Fashion Design with Technology, in the UK. Petra’s fashion journey has included design, retail, visual merchandising, promotions and styling. Her business was born from her keen desire to marry sustainability with the fashion industry.

Petra is focused on slowing fashion down, buying better and choosing well.

Clothing is hand-picked by feel and quality. Selecting natural fibres that stand the test of time and feel amazing to wear.

Petra says, “I love injecting the gems of clothing I find with lots of TLC and I love breathing new life into old pieces.

We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Petra as an advocate and presenter in the Perth Hills as part of our Common Threads Woven Through Community Exhibition.

Common Threads Woven Through Community is a month long community engagement project which includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages.

Our 2020 theme embraces the inter connection of our living world – the seen and unseen “The Pollination of Life” exploring the underlying connections between artists, creatives, sustainable enterprises and movements. As we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet.

These events are designed to share art and craft forms and exchange knowledge, to open participants up to a new way of life, they encourage the questioning of our thought patterns, they support the dissolving of old belief systems bringing a sense of belonging. You will feel deeply inspired by being part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.
