When it comes to the changing landscape of fashion, don’t get left behind.
Every week an increasing number of style savvy shoppers turn away from the high street clothing giants to seek out fashion more in line with their ethical and environmental beliefs.
The way we shop and what we shop for is undergoing radical change. The time for cheaply made fast fashion is dwindling, while demand for ethically produced, beautifully designed clothing is quickly gaining traction.
Empower yourself with knowledge from industry leaders and learn some new practical skills for making and creating in upcycling workshops. Once you have learnt the basics of working with fabric you can build on these skills to create environmentally friendly pieces that not only look uniquely amazing, but save you money too.
With this in mind Sans Pareil are super proud to have partnered with the forever awesome Make Town to bring you Meet Your Maker, a five day pop-up event taking place on November 20th – 24th at Make Town in Hackney, London.
We know you’re here for the slow fashion so we’ve brought 10 of our favourite sustainable designers from here in the UK and further afield together to showcase their designs that are not only sustainably made, but accessible to everyone.
ID UK, Tutla, Hoh Paibassi, Tramp In Disguise, House of Byfield, Fabric for Freedom, Blonde Gone Rogue, Esthe, Aff And Jam and Fruta are ready and eager to change your perceptions of what designer clothing is and challenge stereotypes around production, quality, and price points. There will also be fun workshops and expert lead panel discussions.
Our Five days of events kick off on Wednesday the 20th with our opening night. Guests will be treated to an exclusive opening party, enjoying free drinks with their ticket, a panel of speakers who will discuss the importance of slow fashion and steps we can take to improve the textile industry. The panel will include Vogue Italy Photographer Kerry Curl and Sustainability power-house Raeburne and led by the social change-maker Ethics Matter. Brooke, the director of Make Town will then host an exclusive workshop. Doors from 6pm.
On Thursday the pop-up will include a textile workshop from Brooke focusing on embroidery and how to upcycle your denim jacket from old and tired into this season’s must have. Pop up opens at 10am. Decorate your Denim workshop 7pm - 8.30pm
For Friday’s panel, Fabric for Freedom will be discussing the dark side of fast fashion, the ugly truth about where some of our fast fashion pieces come from. We are hosting special workshops, focussing on different ways we can use waste, dead or new materials to breathe a brand new life into our existing wardrobe and home. Fabric for Freedom partner with incredible, purpose-led charities which operate globally to create respect, value and to improve quality of living. These charities are passionate about eradicating poverty in working with and restoring those affected by human trafficking. This is essential for anyone with a passion for environmental sustainability. Pop Up opens at 10am
Macrame Plant Holders give your home a warm, bohemian vibe and popular with many interior decorators. On Saturday Brooke will hold a workshop that focuses on these plant holders in her textile workshop using recycled T-Shirt material. Pop Up opens at 10am
Sunday will be the last day to pick up truly sustainable fashion and get your Christmas shopping started! A final workshop from Make Town with a 90's throwback - Scrunchies! Workshop will run between 11am and 2pm. Pop Up opens at 10am
Come and experience the future of ethical and conscious fashion in a fun, relaxed environment. We can’t wait to see you
