Fashion Clinic is a response to the severely sick fashion industry with its global accelerated growth in production and over-consumption of clothing, extracting, processing and discarding too quickly and unsustainably. At Fashion Clinic, Kay repairs, reshapes and redesigns preloved garments for her individual customers, brands, corporates and NGOs. She regularly teaches upcycling workshops with brands, NGOS and universities.
Kay curated Future Fashion Lab, a 10 day SUSTAINABLE FASHION FESTIVAL which was organized at The Mills, bringing together sustainable designers, brands, material innovators from around the world to exhibit, speak at the talks and panel discussions, and hosting workshops on the weekends.
