Sustainable Threads – Roundtable Discussion & Clothes Swap


Come join us on Saturday 29th September 2018 for a free open roundtable discussion on reducing waste on post-consumer fashion. 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 first event, funded by the North London Waste Authority, is the first of the two-part ‘Festival of Sustainable Fashion’ taking place in North London this Autumn.

As part of our commitment to reducing throwaway fashion, after the roundtable discussion, there will be a free clothes swap. We highly encourage all attendees to bring three pieces of clean, unwanted clothing for this part of the event. However, there is no need to bring to take.
