A Bed Collection - Behind the Scenes

Featured image

Join us on March 5th to meet Luca Kemkes, the designer behind our latest exhibition 'A Bed Collection'.

The exhibition is a showcase of streetwear pieces made entirely out of repurposed bedding. Kemkes will introduce the collection, providing some insights into her design process, and her challenge to the streetwear industry in particular to look past trends and think outside the box with materials and construction.

Having worked previously as a menswear designer at Calvin Klein, Kemkes' own streetwear collection makes use of bedding sourced from secondhand shops and online marketplaces. The design process is led by the variety of textures and details in each piece of material – showcasing intricate pattern making and patchwork techniques in creating a unique garment from every bit of fabric.

"Sometimes people see sustainability as difficult. But with this collection I want to show how to use sustainable ways of creating fashion to make truly unique and more beautiful items than are possible in conventional ways."

Your ticket price is a donation that goes towards the Fashion for Good Experience, helping to bring these kinds of events to life!

From the 29th of Feb til the 12th of March we have a new exhibition on display at Fashion for Good - a showcase of streetwear pieces from Luca Kemkes' 'A Bed Collection' - made entirely out of repurposed bedding.
Having worked previously as a menswear designer at Calvin Klein, Kemkes' own streetwear collection makes use of bedding sourced from secondhand shops and online marketplaces. The design process is led by the variety of textures and details in each piece of material – showcasing intricate pattern making and patchwork techniques in creating a unique garment from every bit of fabric.
We invite you to come and be inspired by how textile choices and garment construction can challenge the status quo of streetwear design.
The exhibition entry is free of charge, but cash donations are appreciated to support our museum!

Event from Feb 29th to Mar 12th

The Best of the Best Clothing Swap - Fashion for Good

Featured image

Our first clothing swap of 2020 was an overwhelming success, so we're back in February running a special 'The Best of the Best' edition to try something a little different - focusing on unique or statement pieces that have sat unworn in your wardrobe and deserve a second life out in the open!

For this special edition we ask that you bring a maximum of 2 items - only items you consider real gems and in great condition but for whatever reason you haven't been wearing. The quality is more important than the label as we want to focus on high quality materials, statement designs, interesting patterns and intricate details.

We'll also ask you to write a little note about each garment when you bring it in for the swap so the new owner can learn about its previous life and appreciate it even more. Loved clothes last!

How does it work?

Bring 1 or 2 good quality, statement items of clothing to Fashion for Good any time between now and the swap - the sooner the better. This will mean we can pre sort and organise your items so we are able to start the swap on time! We are located on Rokin 102 and are open from 11am to 6pm every day for you to come in to drop off your items. You will receive 1 blue token per item accepted - hold on to them as this is your 'money' for the swap.

We will again have sustainable stylist Chiara on hand during the evening, to help you pick out the perfect item for you!
