A sustainable fashion experience

Through the playful metaphor of having an insight in goddess of memory, Mnemosine’s wardrobe, in this workshop there will be inputs to think about your wardrobe, the lifetime of your clothing and the possible transformation of garments through redesigning techniques. Inspired by sustainable fashion researcher, Kate Fletcher’s idea about the importance of stories in how we relate to our wardrobe and how much we care about our garments, participants will share pictures and stories about some of their clothing, choosing pieces that would have a long story to tell and others that they’d like to get rid of. We will combine together a wardrobe and find out best practises on how to transform or get rid of definitively of the clothing that is not wanted anymore, addressing the weak points of the fashion system. Caring is a step to destroy less through fashion. Join us to create a wardrobe of stories for Mnemosine!3 statements or questions related to the workshop
