The award winning ReFashion event will next be held on Thursday 10 March 2016 from 12pm-6pm!
Held for the first time in 2012, ReFashion brings together businesses, charities, students, volunteers and community groups to highlight the problem of disposable fashion and give unloved clothes a brighter future! The event will be compered by the fantastic Rich from Jack2.
People bringing clothes to the event have the option of 'swishing' - swapping them for free, passing them to a charity to sell, finding out how to repair or decorate them or even transforming a favourite garment into something totally different. There is the chance to buy upcycled textile crafts or take part in a free upcycling or mending demonstrations. All fabric at the end of the event is recycled.
Catwalk shows featuring students and charity shops take place throughout the event. Refreshments will be provided by Donnington Doorstep.
