EVENTS // Fashion Revolution Week!

whomademyclothes

The week beginning Monday 18th April has been designated Fashion Revolution Week, in order to remember all the lives lost in the tragic Rana Plaza garment factory collapse in Bangladesh in 2013. The events and activities hosted during this week also aim to push the fashion industry for greater responsibility and transparency.

Wherever in the world you are, we hope you’ll join us, as fashion consumers, in asking companies #WhoMadeMyClothes?

For anyone in Manchester, we have not one, not two, but THREE awesome events for you to attend during Fashion Revolution Week.

Documentaries & Discussion Panel – Friday 22nd April 12-4:30pm
This amazing event is being organised by the Resyntext Project, MMU and Stitched Up. It will be an afternoon of food, films (x2) and lively discussion from a panel of inspiring speakers on the topic of clothing supply chains – how our clothes are made and what happens when we throw them away.
It’s completely FREE but you can register a place here. Not to be missed!

Clothes Swap & Wardrobe Surgery – Saturday 23rd April 2-4pm
Our April clothes swap will be held at St. Clement’s Church as part of the Chorlton Big Green Happening. While you’re at the swap you can drop in to our Wardrobe Surgery between 2-4pm where there’ll be sewing equipment and advice and ideas on zhooshing up your swap finds 🙂

The Big Green Fashion Show – Saturday 23rd April 4:30pm
Also part of the Chorlton Big Green Happening, we’ll be showcasing the work of some talented local (and not-so local) sustainable fashion designers. We CANNOT wait.

See you there! 😀
