The world has been taken over by slow fashion, and it is clear that thinking about what we buy has become more critical than ever. The Scottish Fashion Festival is bringing a set of events to Glasgow to attract more attention to sustainable fashion on November 19.
The festival is organised by a charity called Re:Design Scotland and will be introducing a sustainable fashion event with pop-up shops and a number of workshops, DJ sets and even a free drink on arrival. STUDIO EDIT: Glasgow’s Conscious Fashion Collective will take place at South Block in Glasgow City Centre and will be welcoming fashion lovers from 10am until 5pm. The event itself is free of charge, however the workshops will have a set fee.
Local artists will be showcasing their newest designs and newest collections, as well as small slow businesses from around Glasgow. ReJean will be introducing all the denim goodness from reclaimed materials, as well as hosting a 90-minute workshop teaching visitors the art of denim and clothing repair, encouraging mending and repair at home.
LAW Design Studio will also be there with their small batch ready to buy clothes presenting a true slow fashion movement where, with increasing growth and demand, instead of using factories, local freelancers are hired to produce the needed amount of orders. Love & Squalor is another highlight for vintage lovers, with long-lasting clothing that stands the test of time.
LAW Design Studio and Love & Squalor will also host a fabric gift-wrapping workshop where they will teach guests how to make sustainable gift wrap out of fabric that can be repurposed and reused over time.
Second Cashmere will also be championing circular economy presenting cashmere goods made from recycled and restored textiles. And Hayley McSporran will be providing feminine minimalist designs in the form of clothes and accessories.
