About The Event
Did you know that fashion produces more CO2 emissions than all aviation and shipping combined?
Come to the Centre at 5.30pm to experience a 'Subversive Catwalk', a dynamic live display - created by campaign group a:dress - of up-cycled clothing embellished with messages about the devastating impact fast fashion has on the planet.
5.30pm We will show a short film about the work of a:dress.
5.45pm Subversive Catwalk around Angel Central and in Islington Climate Centre itself
About ‘a:dress’: Using poetry, facts, ‘fashion’ and film, a:dress creates pop-up art spaces in which to raise awareness about the devastating impact fast fashion has on the planet - and what can be done about it.
This Folkestone-based art/activist campaign also commits to highlighting the ways that women and girls are particularly affected by climate crisis AND targeted by the fast fashion industry.
