Social Enterprise Trains Migrants and Refugees with Fashion-Industry Skills

Sydney TAFE has teamed with a new clothing and retail social enterprise, The Social Outfit charity, to launch a dynamic collaboration that would enable students to gain real fashion industry skills and take on their own creativity and rich cultural heritage to produce garments for The Social Outfit’s store and adjoining workshop in Newtown.

The Social Outfit charity is based on the successful social enterprise, The Social Studio, which has been operating in Melbourne since 2009. The Social Outfit’s mission is to empower people from new migrant and refugee backgrounds by providing them with job-ready skills and educational opportunities as they settle in Australia.
