Taking place at the Ealing Project on 10th May, The Next Stop For Fashion will educate us all on textile and clothing waste issues in the fashion industry, with the ultimate goal of reducing textile waste in Ealing.
Fashion business students at the University of West London have joined forces with Ealing Council to host sustainable fashion event The Next Stop for Fashion – and you’re invited!
Learn how to adopt creative and responsible behaviours relating to fashion through a series of sustainable fashion workshops, clothes swap, pop-up stalls and see the eye opening film Fashion Reimagined.
The Next Stop for Fashion is FREE to attend and will include:
- Panel talk with industry experts to discuss global fashion issues from overconsumption to upcycling and responsible ways to pass on clothing.
- Fashion Reimagined, feature length film, which follows the story of fashion designer Amy Powney who is on a mission to create a sustainable collection from field to finished garment and transform the way we engage with fashion.
- Clothes swap to refresh your wardrobe and give a second life to unwanted garments.
- Mending workshop run by Ealing Repair Café to teach easy ways to prolong the lives of your clothes, focusing on key skills from patching to darning.
- Upcycling workshop run by Re’store to inspire you to rethink and reinvent your clothing.
- Pop-up stalls curated by local charity shops and fashion businesses focused on upcycled and pre-loved fashion.
- Student Projects Showcase from the University of West London addressing waste through innovate ideas including fashion, design, journalism and technology. Click here to get a sneak-peak of the students work.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend this event- which I was really looking forward to- will there be another chance later in the year?
I am not sure as we are promoting the event on behalf of organisers. Maybe contact the University of West London about it.
