Event Description

For Fashion Revolution Week, SOAS Ethical Fashion Society will be hosting a Remake & Remodel/Body Politic Workshop, where you can learn to knit, embroid something beautiful, explore visual mending with darning techniques or express social/political messages through the use of screen-printed logos and lettering. Logos and lettering have kindly been made by https://www.bodypolitic.space who work to encourage and facilitate others in a movement for positive resistance.

Fashion Revolution Week commemorates the Rana Plaza disaster that took place in Dhaka Bangladesh in 2013 where 1134 garment factory workers died in a factory collapse. Unfortunately, Rana Plaza was not an isolated incident and today unsafe factories and exploited workers continue to prop-up the trillion dollar industry.

SOAS Ethical Fashion Society seeks to raise awareness of ongoing labour exploitation and environmental degradation inherent to fast fashion. We strive to facilitate discourse within the ethical fashion movement and come up with feasible solutions to create change.

Note:

(1) Event is subject to location change if strike action goes ahead.

(2) Please bring an item that you would like to repair or give a makeover- denim jackets work perfectly if you have one that you would like to spice up!

(3) Please try to arrive at 1 pm, so you have enough time to finish your garment.

(4) If you are not a part of SOAS university, you will need to sign in at reception where a member of staff will give you a visitors pass and direct you to the Russel Room.

(5) There will be free fair trade chocolate and tea!

With love,

SOAS EF xx
