Fashion Week has given us the colours and the looks, and the new season stock is swiftly arriving in the shops in time for Easter.
As we are being encouraged to make do and mend whilst the world takes a stance on waste, we take a fresh look at our throwaway society and how we can focus on sustainability by updating our wardrobes and reworking old items into current trends. Classic, timeless pieces will never go out of style and can always be refreshed.
Textiles are the UK's fastest growing household waste stream, and it is easy to forget that it's just as important to reduce fast fashion, reuse preloved items, and recycle old clothes, as much as it is to have a greener footprint elsewhere.
Dress and style is a key part of self-confidence, and looking the part as well as doing your bit for the environment will have an enormous impact on everyday life.
Our style and fashion tutor Emma Lane will spend the morning looking at the SS19 collections, how to choose seasonal trends and recycle what we have in our closets to incorporate with budget pieces and use accessories to their best to update our looks. A light-hearted look at how to avoid throwing away a suitcase each per year of unwanted or unworn items and how to care for your clothes to make them last year after year.
Bring a little-used piece with you to our fun filled practical morning to see how it can be made to work in your wardrobe and become a bargain and not a white elephant!
