Sustainable Style YYC April 15
This year’s Sustainable Style YYC event is taking place on April 15, 2015, as part of Down to Earth Week (April 13 - 19), presented by REAP (Calgary’s only sustainable business association ) and some amazing local and sustainable fashion retailers - and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of the festivities again this year!
When most of us go shopping, we look for style, clothes that fit and complement our bodies, and perhaps the trends and colours of the season. But do you ever wonder where your clothes come from and how their production impacts our environment and our overall well-being?
Many people and places are affected by clothing production, and Calgary’s upcoming Sustainable Style YYC event is a fun and interactive way to meet local designers and learn about their inspiration, manufacturing, design and their commitment to ethical fashion.
Sustainable Style YYC is part of a global movement called Fashion Revolution Day (April 24), which aims to bring more transparency to the fashion supply chain. For details on the #whomademyclothes campaign visit http://fashionrevolution.org/
Nicole Bridger, a leading expert in sustainable fashion and award-winning Vancouver designer, will share the vast benefits of shopping and sourcing clothing locally, while also supplying tips for making your personal style more sustainable, and how we can all be a part of this amazing fashion movement!
