Handmade With Love
Fashion Revolution is a citizen-led global movement created to protest what happened in Bangladesh in 2013, where the Rana Plaza, a textile factory in which clothing was manufactured for the fast fashion industry, collapsed.
Since then, the Fashion Revolution is celebrated every year. Events are organised in many cities around the world to raise awareness of the damage that the fast fashion industry causes to the planet and people.
A Pompidou has been present at various Fashion Revolution events both in Italy and in Spain. And what about you? Will you join the fashion revolution?
“LA TÉRMICA” FASHION SHOW, MÁLAGA
This spring we attended La Térmica cultural centre in Malaga, where an event dedicated to sustainable fashion was held by AMSE ( Spanish Sustainable Fashion Association) as part of Fashion Revolution Week.
A Pompidou presented its new flamenco/festival dresses made with recycled shirts.
A Pompidou presentó sus nuevos vestidos de fiesta/flamenca realizados con camisetas recicladas.
On March 30th the upcycling fashion contest “Tejiendo Descosíos” (mending a torn seam), organised by Humana, took place in Madrid.
A Pompidou entered the contest, and travelled to the capital to join the parade with hand-made loom-woven skirts, made with recycled materials.
A fun atmosphere, music, sustainable fashion shows and cocktails.
We end up with a great impression of the event, because we take home the first prize in the contest. Woohoo!
WORKSHOPS AND TRAINING
A Pompidou offers workshops for craft enthusiasts. During the workshops, we teach students the basics of certain artisan techniques, so that they learn while developing their own creations.
