Darling Magazine Presents Sheffield's Sustainable Fashion Week Event

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.

Don't miss this chance to be part of Sheffield's Sustainable Fashion Week event on October 7th, at Foundry, Sheffield and learn more more about how sustainable fashion can come in all forms - from the high street to your bedroom.

Eurydice’s Last Words

by Kate Bradley I do not want to return To sit in the stalls, Of an empty black box Strewn with petals Leave the ghost light on, Let it shine like a call home, But I will not come back To turn it off alone. I learn this as we walk Our ever so solemn path Our thudding funeral march, You think we’re going back. As I trace my old steps, I fear of the day When the symphony swells, And I land my gaze On you, yet you will be Enraptured by the sound, If you did twist To turn around, You would not see me. So I am not sorry, I speak out into the empty air And I am not sorry. “Turn Around.” You do, you look You think  I fall But I run on, Arms wide open To fall in love With it all “Perhaps she was the one who said, ‘Turn around.” On the X45 bus, back from the Tyneside Cinema, I wrote a poem entitled “Eurydice’s Final Words”, after having seen “Portrait of a Lady on Fire”.  That poem was terrible, so I wrote a new one, as my response to the beautifully poignant film.  In one scene, Héloïse, an 18

Single Review: ‘Tell Me’ - Jay Moussa-Mann

by Ilana Hawdon The feeling of pure betrayal and heartbreak is perfectly captured in Jay Moussa-Mann’s latest single, ‘Tell Me’. Jay Moussa-Mann is the folk dream we have been waiting for. A favourite on BBC Introducing, Radio 6 and BBC Radio Tees, Jay ’s sound is easy on the ears but delightfully addictive. With a background in writing and film, she began her solo musical venture when she released her debut album, ‘Little Deaths’ in late-2019, and since then, Moussa-Mann has defined herself as an artist with unbelievable range and promise.    ‘Tell Me’ is completely timeless; with notes of Carole King and Joni Mitchell, Moussa-Mann creates a folk-inspired track which is simultaneously heart wrenching and strangely empowering. Beginning as a simple guitar tune, ‘Tell Me’ builds with layers of luscious strings and twinkling piano, tied together with Jay ’s vocal line which is equal parts melancholic and divine. The song feels unwaveringly intimate; the lyrics ask, ‘what was I worth?’
