More Information: DOLLY will be MENDING IN PUBLIC on Saturday 20th April as part of a global #FashionRevolution campaign to stitch in protest against disposable fashion. The idea is simple: we will repair our torn pockets 👗 and broken seams 👖 amid busy Saturday shoppers and spark conversations on making Loved Clothes Last 🌍 💚 All you have to do is bring your mends, we’ve got the rest covered. We’ll have chairs to sit on, some basic kit like needle and thread, fabric scraps for patches, and expert advice at hand. “First we mend our clothes, then we mend the system.” Orsola de Castro See you there 👊
