Fashion enthusiasts and sustainability advocates, mark your calendars because we’re hosting Sheffield’s inaugural contribution to Sustainable Fashion Week.
On Saturday, October 7th, Darling Magazine invites you to join them at Foundry, Sheffield, for a day jam-packed with fun and educational activities surrounding the idea of preloved fashion.
Sustainable Fashion Week (SFW) is a global and online event that celebrates sustainable fashion and encourages us all to think more deeply about our clothing choices. Sheffield's event, hosted by Darling Magazine's Editor-in-Chief Emily Duff, promises to be a highlight of this week - embracing SFW’s theme’s ‘Regenerate’, ‘Repurpose’, ‘Reconnect’ and ‘Rewear’.
For just £2, you can enjoy a full day of engaging activities from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM, including a Swap Shop, Pop-up stalls, an Upcycle station, and a Panel Talk. Let's take a closer look at what this event has in store for you.
Swap Shop: Embracing 'Regenerate'
In the spirit of the SFW theme 'regenerate,' Darling Magazine's Swap Shop invites you to bring clothing you no longer wear and trade it for something new and exciting. This concept of "giving new life" to clothing perfectly captures the essence of sustainable fashion. It's a wonderful way to refresh your wardrobe while also contributing to a more sustainable fashion ecosystem.
Pop-up Stalls: Embracing 'Reconnect'
Darling Magazine's pop-up stalls align with the 'reconnect' theme, offering you the chance to meet the faces behind Darling Magazine, TVC Vintage and the University of Sheffield’s Fashion Society. It's a unique opportunity to connect with independent companies as well as learning more about Fashion Society, open to all fashion enthusiasts.
Upcycle Station: Embracing 'Repurpose'
In line with the theme 'repurpose,' the Upcycle Station, run by the University of Sheffield's Fashion Society, encourages you to get creative with your clothing. Learn how to breathe new life into your garments, transforming them into something entirely unique. It's a hands-on experience that showcases the power of creativity and sustainability.
Panel Talk: Embracing 'Rewear'
The highlight of the event is the Panel Talk, focusing on the concept of 'rewear,' one of the central themes of SFW this year. Hosted by Darling Magazine writer Tia Janowski, this insightful discussion will explore the world of second-hand fashion. Joining Tia are special guests Joseph Jones from TVC Vintage and Alice Leadbetter from Glass Onion Vintage. Get ready for a deep dive into the world of sustainable fashion and second-hand treasures.
Darling Magazine's event not only aligns with the principles of Sustainable Fashion Week but also goes above and beyond to promote a mindful and responsible approach to fashion and culture. It's an opportunity to celebrate fashion's potential as a force for positive change and to amplify underrepresented voices in the industry.
