Last week I went along to two events with Redress, the environmental NGO working to reduce waste in the fashion industry. Firstly, I got to see the launch of their new book: Dress with Sense. The following evening I went along to W Hotel to watch a screening of their new documentary: Frontline Fashion.
Both evenings gave me a sense that sustainable fashion is stepping up it’s game to attract a mainstream global audience in really exciting ways.
The media keeps telling you the climate is changing, right? Though the whole thing just seems completely un-relateable for those of us sat here reading about it on our smartphones.
I think climate change needs a re-brand.
This week we celebrated World Water Day. How concerned should we be with water scarcity and safety, especially when we consider the implications for our mental health? Can we better engage with climate change by understanding the impact of what we wear on water?
Some of you might have listened to my talk at Interlaced 2015 this week, on the topic of ‘Sustainable Fashion Through Technology’. I tried to zoom into two huge topics for the fashion industry: sustainability and technology. Both will have a huge and unpredictable influence on the future of fashion, but how can they work together?
What’s the link between ‘Fashion’, ‘Women’ and ‘Power’ ?
How has fashion shaped the changing nature of women in society?
We went to London’s Design Museum to see their latest exhibition titled: ‘Women, Fashion, Power’.
