No Space for Wasted Fashion

Have you ever dropped a load of old clothes at a goodwill or Salvation Army, or thrown out your favorite top because you’ve worn holes into it sooner than you’d hope to? Have you ever thought to yourself, “I hope this stuff finds a new home and it’s not wasted?” In a global and online economy, we consume at a faster rate and in higher volumes than ever before. This style of consumption can come at a great cost not just to our wallets, but also to the well being of the environment. Come join us for a discussion about the reality of waste by fashion, and discovers from designers and a personal stylist how you can make a positive impact and reducing waste production through informed choices. Learn tips and tricks on how to shop intentionally.
