SCAP presents TALK

who made your clothes

It is no secret that the 'fast- fashion' industry is harmful for our environment and is a massive threat for workers, though it is constantly in business and still going as strong as ever. However, with recent changes of carrier bag charges in superstores and bigger shops, it is evident that we are making progress on getting heard. Brighton Fashion Week is the biggest sustainable fashion week. We want to shout out and promote sustainable and ethical fashion to make changes where we can. This event can help do that.

Our ethos for Brighton Fashion Week is to celebrate, promote and encourage sustainable and a more ethical and eco friendly way of choosing our clothing. There are a number of ways of doing this and we want to show how fun this can be. This year we are holding an event called SCAP presents TALK, held by resource efficiency experts WRAP.

This consists of three short sessions in an hour-long workshop that costs just £5. The aim of this workshop is to answer the questions on how we re-invent, re-think and re-define. This is held by talks of Anne Prayl, Ben Thomas and Carol Rose. The three workshops of SCAP will look at: -Re-inventing how we design, market and sell clothes. -Re-thinking how we use and consume clothes. -Re-defining what is possible through re-use and recycling of textiles.

The first part of the SCAP workshop is taken by Anne Prahl. Anne will be showcasing new initiatives, processes and technology that can reduce the environmental impact of clothing. The Second part of SCAP workshop is then taken by Ben.

Ben is from a non-profit fashion organisation MADE BY. He will explore into sourcing and benchmarking sustainable fibres for sustainable design.

Carol Rose will finish the talks with the relevance of sustainability in the fashion industry. She will tie the whole event together and give you the opportunity to see how the sustainable fashion industry works from every angle.


The Next Black next black

To conclude the SCAP workshop, Joe Oram from Electrolux will introduce the AEG film "The Next Black". The film was released in May and focusing on designers, innovators and leaders who are shaping the future of clothing. It is an amazing and interesting film about the future of sustainability, and fashion and what is next for the industry.
