FASHION OPEN STUDIO is a worldwide showcasing initiative of interactive open studio events which takes place during Fashion Revolution Week. For the second time, this international calendar of presentations, talks, openings and workshops will shine a light on innovative emerging designers, established trailblazers and major players, who are finding alternative ways of producing fashion that is mindful of the planet and its resources. It is part of the globally recognised #whomademyclothes initiative. The industry is looking for answers and it is the smaller brands who are finding innovative new ways of doing things.

FASHION OPEN STUDIO is an international initiative that launched during Fashion Revolution Week April 2017. A year on and FASHION OPEN STUDIO 2018 was a rich and diverse week packed full of studio open days, designer talks, workshops, information sharing, and even the odd poetry reading and dance performance. There were events during Fashion Revolution Week April 22-29 in several locations around the world including Manto Abrigos in Buenos Aires, Biology Studio in Mexico City, A.BCH in Melbourne, Vivienne Westwood in London, Stella McCartney and the RealReal in New York, Veja’s Open Bunker in Paris and Xu Zhi in Shanghai. Our brilliant partners helping us along the way included CELC Masters of Linen, the V&A Museum, Chelsea College of Arts, Central Saint Martins, Sarabande Foundation, Barnardo’s (for a memorable DiscoMAKE with designers Matthew Needham and Maddie Williams), and Depop.
