Fashion for good
Cambridge’s second Sustainable Fashion Festival will make it easier than ever to look good whilst caring for the environment.
Festival organiser, Nicole Barton of Cambridge Carbon Footprint, says: “This day is all about solutions. For alternatives to buying new you can talk to The Nuw Wardrobe about renting your clothes in the Cambridge area, or swap your unworn clothes at a big Swish (clothes swap party). 30% of the average wardrobe is unworn so why not refresh it with pieces that fit you and you’ll actually wear? ”
The sustainable pop-up market will be a great place to find new clothes that will allow you to #WearYourValues. At the luxurious end will be beautifully made organic cotton garments, vegan shoes by NOAH and bags made to last a lifetime. And an array of upcycled, second hand and vintage stalls will mean there should be something for everyone.
Sustainable stylist Roberta Lee will be running workshops on colour analysis and creating a capsule wardrobe. Meanwhile, the Cambridge Sewing Repair Café team will fix your ripped, worn and tired clothes for free.
The public are invited to bring all their empty make-up containers and paraphernalia to the BeautyCycle recycling point run by John Lewis who’ll also be there sharing news of a new cash-for-clothes scheme that’ll pay customers for unwanted clothes.
The Sustainable Fashion Festival takes place at St Barnabas’ Church, Mill Road, Cambridge CB12BD, 11am – 4:30pm on Sat 21 st March.
Everything is free, apart from the styling workshops; booking is required for workshops.
