Weekly Challenge, 17th September – Friendly Fashion
.
We wish people got as excited about innovations in fashion as they do with new iPhones because it’s exciting, dressing the future. A bold statement to start the week from @revisionmagazine, an independent magazine challenging the way sustainability is communicated by simply curating and showcasing the best designers, artists and thinkers leading the way. They want to show how un-cool fast fashion really is, and to do this, present you with an alternative. So this week we’re inviting you to start by creating your own alternative at home. How can we use what we already have to disrupt the disposable fashion loop? How can we reconnect with the natural world to encourage us to think about our impact on it?
.
There are plenty of natural dyes in your food cupboards. Have a root around and see what colours you can create. You could re-vamp an existing piece of clothing or test it out on spare fabric or a tea-towel to start. Berries, beetroot, spices, coffee? Maybe you could even take to the garden. Get creative and share your results.
