On the 30th of September 2021, Fashion for Good is organising a Clothes Swap at the Fashion for Good Museum. An easy and fun way to refresh your wardrobe with new (second hand) items and also a perfect way of giving your unworn items a new home. Good for you, the planet and your wallet!

For every item you hand in, you'll receive either a yellow token worth 1 point (for fast fashion items or similar), a red token worth 2 points (for mid-end brands) or a blue token worth 3 points (for high-end brands). You can then use your tokens to "buy" items of equivalent points. For example, you could exchange 3 yellow tokens for 3 "yellow" items or for one "red" item because each is worth 3 points.

- Underwear and swimwear are not accepted
- Clothes must be clean and washed

Extra fun!
During this edition you can also swap with our close friends of the museum and Dutch (sustainable) influencers Milou Turpijn, Sara Dubbeldam (When Sara Smiles) Lisa Stel (Lisa Goes Vegan) and Stephanie van den Sigtenhorst (Let's Talk Slow)!

Fashion for Good Masterclass: designing with nature (Hybrid)

Hybrid event: join virtually or in person!

The Creative Directors of BOTTER and Nina Ricci, will take you into a deep dive on the relationship between nature and designing fashion.

Since forever, collections are based on the galaxy, designs based on fungus, floral application or leopard print accessoires - nature is a massive source of inspiration for the fashion industry.

Lisi Herrebrugh and Rushemy Botter take this a level up. Their BOTTER manifesto says:

“(...) We care about fashion, as the golden daughter of all arts. We care about nature, as the golden mother of all arts. Without nature, no arts, nothing. Without the sea, no human, no us. (...)”

The BOTTER Coral Nursery, an organization that actively works on reviving the coral reef, and using innovative materials, such as the ocean waste plastic materials, for their collections is part of their mission to make a change in the industry.

Nature is not only their inspiration to create fashion, but also their drive.

Join the masterclass to learn more about their thought processes for creating fashion for BOTTER and Nina Ricci, struggles they’ve come across and their ultimate dreams.

Some questions that will be answered:

What does a day in the life of Lisi and Rushemy look like?

When and how did nature start influencing their work?

What is their biggest source of inspiration?

Are there assessments to be made between nature and commerciality?

What can you, as a consumer, do to make a positive impact?

If you have any questions for Lisi and Rushemy, please make sure to submit them or ask them during the Q&A!

AGENDA:

16.00: start event & welcome by FFG

16.05: deep dive by Lisi Herrebrugh & Rushemy Botter

16.40: Q&A
