Fashion Revolution: Sustainable Design Workshop Series

Hey Everyone, we are super excited to get into the workshop series with you all this Saturday! Here is the lowdown on the event xx.

The Fashion Revolution is a global movement that promotes transparency, ethical practice and sustainability throughout the fashion industry. The movement aims to show that change is possible and encourages those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion.

Fashion Revolution Week runs from the 23rd to 29th of April, a week where consumers and brands alike, are encouraged to think about and ask, who made my clothes?

In Response to Fashion Revolution Week, The Habadashery Club is hosting a series of hands-on, introductory workshops. These workshops focus on sustainable design ideas to encourage a more conscious approach to consuming fashion and textiles.
