PPE Fashion Parade

You don't often hear defence and fashion in the same sentence, but a number of Queensland companies collaborated at Land Forces 2014 to run a daily fashion parade showcasing Queensland's capability in developing protective clothing, including bomb disposal suits, and ballistic vests, eye protection and undergarments.

Products from EPE, Merino Country, Military Gear, ByField Optics and TOTE Systems were modelled.
