Graduate School Highlights
Swap till you Drop!
Thursday 18 October, 18.30-19.30, Graduate School Social Space
Love Fashion but don't want the guilt. The answer: swap till you shop! Dig out any old items from your wardrobe, as long as they're in good enough quality i.e.something you would offer a friend. Why not come along for a relaxed evening, join the circular economy and see what you might come away with. It might even become your fav item this autumn/fall. Register your interest now!
The more we hear about about the environmental toll the fast fashion industry takes on the planet, or the conditions workers are subjected to, the more we need to think of creative ways to continue looking good without hurting planet or people. When you know it takes the same amount of water to fill 22 bathubs as it does to make one simple t-shirt, we gotta do something.This is an opportunity to discuss fashion and clothing in an easy informal way while also effectively shopping - win win. There will also be a very short presentation on eco designers and ways we can think about upcycling.
Whether it is a coat, dress, trousers, bag or shoes, bring between 1-5 items and swap away. All welcome. And if you don't have any clothing, pay a small donation and still get involved. #qubwastecouture
Hot chocs and tray bakes will be provided by a Local social enterprise.
