NAWIC Conference: Recycling, Repairing, Rewearing
We are pleased to confirm that a fabulous couturier, Dorit Young will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday 21 October 2020 from 13.00 to 14.00. This will be on the themes of the fashion industry, recycling, remaking, repairing and shopping wisely.


This webinar will be about Fast Fashion - how to give your clothing a new lease of life and save them from landfill.

Learn from demonstrations how to mend moth holes in your favourite woollens, what can be done when trousers are torn or shirt collars worn - also how to look after your garments and shop wisely.

Hosting this Clothes Clinic will be Islington based couture milliner Dorit Young MA (Dist.). She has been mending and altering clothes all her adult life and is passionate about wearing pre-owned fashion.

For personal advise have your garments and sewing utensils ready to present online and to discuss their repair needs in a 10 minutes Q & A session at the end of the webinar.
