Don’t throw away your old clothes just because it has a tear, stain, or is going out of style! Keep your wardrobe out of the landfill by learning 3 techniques that will bring your old clothes back to life.
Join us for a night of “re-fashioning” fun and cocktails. We are partnering with some of the best artisans in the Bay Area to show you how to save your used or damaged clothing. You will walk away with three techniques in your arsenal: mending, natural dyeing, and embroidery.

About Fashion’s Revolution:
Four years ago, Rana Plaza, a seven-story garment factory in Bangladesh collapsed killing 1,134 people and injuring 2,500 more. The worst factory accident in our history, this devastating event gave birth to Fashion Revolution – a global grassroots movement demanding transparency in the apparel industry.

To bring awareness of the social and environmental impacts of fast fashion while providing sustainable alternatives, the West Coast Regional branch of Fashion Revolution is highlighting our local sustainable fashion community in a week long schedule of events.
