Slow Fashion - Revive, repair and re-imagine your wardrobe | Saturday, 06. June 2020

This Slow Fashion workshop series will revive and repair your relationship with your wardrobe. With fashion as one of the world’s largest pollutants, Nina Gbor reveals the ugly side of fashion, and where those impulse purchases end up after just one wear. Jenna Flood re-introduces you to the forgotten hero pieces in your wardrobe, with advice on restyling old pieces and eco-fashion. Tamara Russell arms you with the skills to repair and revitalise pieces that deserve a second chance, saving them from landfill. This workshop series will remind you that buying the latest trends isn’t necessary to express your individuality, by creating a bond with the pieces you already have will rekindle your love and be much kinder to the earth.

This slow fashion series is hosted by Jane Milburn, whose ethos aligns so well to what we do - that small individual actions can, and do, create big changes! Jane is a passionate upcycler, with her purpose-driven business Textile Beat, she is an agent for change pioneering slow fashion and finding greater wellbeing through sustainability.

We will also be joined by some guests including Hai Clothing. Hai Clothing supports traditional methods of making with minimal waste. They work with weavers, makers and textile conservationists in remote villages in Laos, in Southern Asia.

In addition, Aife from Salvos Stores will also be sharing how they have adapted to the COVID-19 environment. She will share the details of opening an online store and how best to donate your unwanted good
