Calling all Londoners: Take part in the world’s first Mend in Public Day for Fashion Revolution Week 2024!

 

Angel Central is partnering with Fashion Revolution to mark the first Mend in Public Day – a global call-to-action to make loved clothes last.

Get ready for a day of free repair & upcycling stations, interactive workshops and panel discussions taking place across the piazza and Islington Climate Centre (next to Wagamamas). You’ll be joined and guided by Street Stitching, Colechi, Craftivist Collective and the University of East London with more partners to be announced shortly.

Mend in Public Day stands as a beacon of change in a world inundated with fashion waste. By participating, you’ll be part of a global creative action resisting the cycle of excess through repair and reuse.
