London - Fashion for Good, a global initiative aiming to improve the industry, is set to launch a series of holiday workshops at it first ever pop-up shop.
Located at Fashion for Good hub in the centre of Amsterdam, the Good Fashion Pop-up Shop is set to run from December 1 to 24 and will feature a series of Do-it-yourself-makers workshops, where members of the public can learn to make their own festive gifts.
The pop-up shop will offer limited edition t-shirts, designed by Amsterdam Fashion Institute (AMFI) students. The designs where selected by a panel of local fashion industry influencers and screen-printed onto the industry's first cradle to cradle t-shirts from C&A. The t-shirts are set to retail for 12.90 euros.
In addition, DIY workshops are set to take place at the pop-up space where shoppers can come and create a personalised key chain out of recycled leather waste, hand-sew a card holder out of recycled leather or embroider personalised designs onto their cradle-to-cradle t-shirts. Prices for the workshops are set to vary from 20 euros to 45 euros, including all materials.
In order to mark the occasion, Fashion for Good is also inviting consumers to make a good fashion resolution under the hashtag #GoodFashionResolution and share it online via social media. Three participants will be selected at random to receive a 'Good Fashion Introduction Package' which includes a session with an eco-stylist and a 100 euro gift certificate to sustainable retailer Charlie + Mary.
