How the Joy of Repairing and Rewearing Your Clothes Can Be a Revolutionary Act

Orsola de Castro In Conversation With Hannah MacInnes

Join Logo

Fashion Revolution activist Orsola de Castro joins us to reveal how to love, mend and repair your clothes in the fight against fast fashion.

Running out of space for the clothes you can’t stop buying? Curious about how you can make a difference to the environmental challenges our planet faces?

This livestream event will equip you with a myriad of ways to mend, rewear and breathe new life into your wardrobe to achieve a more sustainable lifestyle. By teaching you to scrutinise your shopping habits and make sustainable purchases, Orsola de Castro will inspire you to buy better, care more and reduce your carbon footprint by simply making your loved clothes last longer.

Fast fashion leaves behind a trail of human and environmental exploitation. Our wardrobes don’t have to be the finish line; they can be a starting point. We can all care, repair and rewear. Do you accept the challenge?

Praise for Orsola de Castro’s Loved Clothes Last:
