On Thursday 27th November, Recycle for Greater Manchester’s award-winning upcycled fashion show ‘Rethink Fashion’ will be taking place at the Museum of Science and Industry.
Collections featuring at the show include designs by: Adnan Bayyat, Junk Shop, Pop Boutique, Students from Manchester College and Manchester Metropolitan University, and upcycled outfits from pupils attending Manor Green Primary School, Denton and Dane Bank Primary School, Stockport and many more.
There will also be exhibitions and stalls including designs by Emmaus Mossley, Junk Shop, Penny Cooke, Pop Boutique, Stitched Up, and interactive stalls like ‘make do and mend’ where you can bring an item of clothing from home to be re-styled for free.
The evening will also include performances by the award- winning Ri Ri’s Dance Academy.
Cllr Kevin Peel, Deputy Chair of Recycle for Greater Manchester, said:
"This is the fourth year of the fashion show and we hope the show inspires residents to rethink fashion by upcycling and making the most of their wardrobe. Every year, in the UK, a staggering 350 thousand tonnes of clothes worth £140 million end up in the bin that could have been re-used or recycled instead."
