As awareness increases through social media, activism and firsthand experience of climate change events, people are becoming more conscious of the impact of their individual decisions on the resources of the planet. This is why veganism is growing and becoming one of the largest consumer trends in the western world, also in fashion.
During this class participants will first discover what is and isn’t vegan in fashion including fibres and textiles. Then, about the product life cycle including dyes and chemicals, the dilemma behind the “ethical” label and discuss the much heated debate of leather vs pleather. You’ll also get a chance to learn about second-hand fashion, exciting vegan and closed-loop innovations in the space of fibres and textiles, and ways to embrace a vegan and sustainable approach to clothing. Join to give an eco twist to your clothing habits.
