Sustainable Fashion Showcase to arrive at the University of Stirling

2 mins read

A sustainable fashion show is arriving to the University of Stirling this week.

Stirling University’s Earth and Environment Society is hosting a sustainable fashion catwalk.

The aim is for volunteers to walk the runway wearing second-hand clothes they feel good about to show how these clothes can be great too.

The club encourages anyone who owns a second-hand outfit to join and spread awareness of the benefits of pre-owned clothes.

SUSEE is an environment-based society at the University of Stirling who wants to foster students’ connections to Earth and nature. They offer a safe space for people to learn and increase their knowledge of the environment.

They focus on ways to create a healthy and safe future for ‘all beings that inhabit the earth’.

The showcase will be on the Stirling campus in 2A13 at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 11.

President of the club, Ivet Stancheva told Brig:

“The main idea of the event is to show how fashion can be produced in a way that is both stylish, and environmentally and socially responsible. It will focus on the idea of reduce, reuse, and recycle.

“The event will include educational components that raise awareness about the importance of sustainability in the fashion industry. 

“I have also prepared a presentation containing information about the negative impact of ‘fast fashion’ not only environmentally, but also socially.”

The event will also host a clothes-swapping station where everyone is welcome to leave clothes they no longer wear or grab a piece that they like!

You can sign up to be a part of the runway through their website.
