The Rewear Revolution will come to life on the runway in an act of rebellion against the fast fashion industry at a one of a kind fashion show on Thursday 28 September at SPARKS. The event marks the launch of the 2023 Sustainable Fashion Week season of events and workshops.

In celebration of sustainable garments and featuring Bristol’s finest second-hand sellers and designers, the SPARKS runway is set to prove that sustainable can be as couture as high-end designer.

With fashion-lovers in safe hands to get all the inspo they need to join the ReWear Revolution, attendees can expect an evening of lights, cameras and networking in a room bursting at the seams with like-minded people. Taking place at Bristol’s leading arts and sustainability hub, SPARKS, the venue has been created by Global Goals Centre, Artspace Lifespace and has a dedicated fashion department curated by Sustainable Fashion Week.

As the effortlessly chic and cool outfits strut down the runway, vintage pioneers and second-hand heroes Sustainable Fashion Week will produce the show, with artistic direction from Lauren Reed and styling from Bristol-based sustainable-stylist, Clothemod.
