Saturday, 29 September 2018 from 11:30 to 16:00 (BST)

Come join us on the 29th September for a free Roundtable Discussion on reducing waste on post-consumerist fashion.

This Saturday sees us hosting Sustainable Threads round table discussion hosted by Charles Craft, free and open to the public to partake and share their voice/perspective. 
We are eager to understand what the public know of environmental issues within the fashion industry and how a team of enthusiastic change makers can empower, assist and encourage networks for change through upcycling, sharing, swapping, mending, altering & recycling.

By shifting attitudes from throwaway fashion to ‘made to treasure’ up-cycled couture, we hope to both inspire and enable the local community to reconsider how they might reduce waste with their fashion habits. This is the first event of the two-part ‘Festival of Sustainable Fashion‘ taking place in North London this Autumn.
As part our our commitment to reducing throwaway fashion, after the Roundtable, there will be a free clothes swap. We’d love for all attendees to bring three pieces of clean, unwanted clothing for this part of the event. This project was funded by the North London Waste Authority.

There’s a great guide on what a clothes swap ‘Swish’ is here
