Event description

Description

If you’re a lover or fashion, curious about designing a stylish but more sustainable life for yourself, this is for you!

It used to be that there were 2 cycles in the fashion calendar -- Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter, but now with fast fashion, there can be as many as 50+ micro-seasons. That means new stuff going on racks for us to purchase every week!

Most of us can easily list off the 3Rs -- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, but our global fashion consumption problem is so off the charts, it’s time for a few more Rs -- Research, Repurpose, Repair & Rent!

In this workshop led by Sarah Peel, slow fashion stylist & Program Director at Fashion Takes Action, you'll learn all about the life cycle of your pair of favourite jeans, dive into the 7Rs of Fashion, and learn why developing a personal style can be a powerful first step to a more sustainable wardrobe -- and taking climate leadership, too!

You are encouraged to bring a design or fashion magazine you don't mind cutting up (we'll be making a vision board!) and one item from your wardrobe (garment, footwear or accessory) that is bound for the donation bin because of rips, stains, fit, boredom, style etc. (we'll be sharing repurposing and repairing ideas!)

Afterwards you'll get a chance to check out the rental fashion racks at Boro!
