Showcasing the wide variety of affordable fashion options, visitors had the opportunity to swap, rent,
and buy second-hand and sustainable clothing.
The event featured hands-on learning areas hosting skills workshops, expert talks and panel discussions.
There were also appearances from Fashion Revolution, LoanHood, Glasgow Caledonian University,
Cancer Research U.K., and Community Couture.
“Rental is still emerging but something that attendees and other stall holders are definitely interested in as an option. I think it shows that rental can co-exist with other ways of sustainable consumption and that more collaboration of this sort needs to happen.”
“People care more about how every piece of item is coming from. Not just from machine-made and mass production. But they also care about forced labour, fair trade and how sustainability is important in nowadays.”
“Most interesting conversations have been about charity shops' place in the sustainable cycle of clothing. But still how much wasteful the clothing industry is”
“That there are a lot more people doing clean fashion (not fast fashion) and yeah great experience! Can’t wait for the next one!”
