ReFashion Witney

October 4th, 2012 by Brigitte Leave a reply »

ReFashion is a fun fashion event that aims to highlight the problem of disposable fashion.

In Oxfordshire around 3% of household rubbish is textiles. This adds up to over 8,000 tonnes of clothes, shoes and fabrics discarded every year which costs local councils over £660,000 to collect and dispose of.

Taking place at Langdale Hall, Witney, on November 3rd (10am-4pm), this free event encourages people to bring their old clothes, buy a refashioned garment or learn crafting and repairing skills. Catwalk shows featuring students and themed performances will take place throughout the day.

Fashion is fun, and that’s exactly what we want ReFashion to be about. Bring along your old clothes to repair, embellish, swap or simply recycle.

If you would like to be involved in helping on the day we need volunteers for:-

  • The kitchen
  • Helping with the swishing stall
  • Setting up and clearing away
  • General help during the day

Come for an hour or longer, whatever you can offer will be gratefully received. We also need models for the catwalk – young and old, male and female. Please get in touch via our Contact page.
