More Information: Fashion Revolution is encouraging us all to get out onto our streets and Mend in Public. Join your local community and stitch in protest against disposable fashion. The designated day is Saturday 20th April, but instead of working another Saturday, we are going to Mend in Public on Friday 19th April. Join us outside the Wardrobe between 2.30 and 4.30 as we sew on buttons, repair rips or patch over holes. Bring something of your own to mend, or pick something from our pile. Of course, while the message to passers-by is to encourage everyone to mend their clothes rather than buy something new, this is really an opportunity to talk! Let’s make a stand against the horrific textile waste caused by our addiction to fast fashion, but let’s also enjoy each other’s company (and hopefully some sunshine).
