Le TISSU: A Slow Fashion Revolution
It’s our annual “Earth Day is Everyday” celebration!💚🌱🌳. Join us for an inspiring, educational & fun day of eco shopping, eco crafting & making a difference.
“Who made your clothes?”
In our hectic daily lives, it’s a simple question we all forget to ask ourselves. But when we do a dynamic, eye-opening world of conscious living & fashion emerges!
Learn about the SLOW FASHION MOVEMENT & what you can do daily to counteract “Fast Fashion” – clothing that’s wastefully discarded, harmful to the environment, inhumane working conditions, unrealistic designing, buying & purchasing cycles & much more. In other words, WHO MADE YOUR CLOTHES, HOW WAS IT MADE & WHERE DOES IT COME FROM? Most importantly, WHERE WILL IT END UP?
*LE FASHION SWAP – Bring up to 3 garments/outfits & exchange. FREE! A stylish upcycling shopping experience for our eco-conscious shoppers
*SPECIAL GUEST **MOTH & RUST** (Moth and Rust) Local & sustainable clothing designer Leanne Dougherty shares her fashion collection & design process. Shop & be inspired!
