Breaking the Fast Fashion Habit
When logo culture boomed in the late 80s and 90s, ‘make and mend’ was shoved aside as shoppers jostled for high street steals - retailers were learning to mimic catwalk styles with increasing precision, and getting them on to rails at lightning speed. As part of the Hox How To: Shop Consciously (& Reduce your Fashion Footprint) night of panels, debate and sustainable shopping at The Hoxton, Holborn, we explore what we can we do to give the longest life to the pieces we love most, and to ensure we’re not part of the problem. It’s easier said than done, but our experts are on hand to school us up on ‘circular fashion’ so the solution can start with us.
We'll be joined by Catarina Midby, Sustainability Manager for H&M in conversation with Professor Becky Earley (UAL, Sustainable Textiles and Material Innovation, and judge of the H&M Global Change Award) and Han Ates, Founder of east London selvedge and raw denim brand Blackhorse Lane Ateliers.
