M&S Launch Sustainable Fashion Lab

LCF’ s Centre for Sustainable Fashion have been working with Marks and Spencer (M&S) to create the UK’s first Sustainable Fashion Lab in the heart of East London, at the Old Truman Brewery.

M&S, Oxfam and the Centre for Sustainable Fashion are bringing together an exciting array of designers, stylists and thought-leaders who will be exploring and debating the future of a more sustainable fashion industry.

The project will give M&S customers a behind-the-scenes look into the world of 21st Century fashion and offer the opportunity to witness the stars of environmentally friendly fashion at work. Eco-conscious visitors will even be able to try their hand at designing and creating their own items through expert-led master classes.

Customers can take unwanted items of clothing to the lab and each item will be assessed for potential use and will either be reused and transformed in the lab or handed to Oxfam to resell or recycle.

The M&S Sustainable Fashion Lab, in partnership with Oxfam and LCF’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion at the Old Truman Brewery, London, is open between 10am – 5pm every day (except Mondays) from 26 April – 9 May 2012.

The events calender is packed full of workshops and talks from LCF’s Dilys Williams and Dr Kate Fletcher as well as menswear designer Christopher Raeburn and Dr Noki

I am so excited to part of this event and  will be delivering a new fashion concept titled Unpick and Remix on the 8th May. Read the full event listing here.
