Photo Gallery: Northern Sustainable Fashion Revolution, Newcastle upon Tyne
Fast fashion is cheap, convenient, and helps the more frugal among us to experiment with new looks. But fast fashion, by its very nature a trend-based, disposable business model, is not sustainable and comes with a far greater price than we might realise.
Organised by Melanie Kyles and ethical clothing company Uncaptive, the event took place at Ampersand Inventions and B&D Studios, combining ethics, craftsmanship, education and sustainability within the fashion industry. The evening included a line-up of events and interactive installations which aimed to raise awareness of fashion practices, the effects of fast fashion and progression being made.
