Last March at the Mediacampus, I organised the Fashion Revolution Week: a succession of events to raise awareness of ethical and responsible fashion among students and all the inhabitants of the Mediacampus. Following this project, I was contacted by Audencia's CSR Chair to speak at this round table on "Responsible fashion in education. What kind of actions? "organised by Galeries Lafayette.
It was a student initiative that lasted 2 days and aimed to raise awareness about responsible fashion among all the actors living at the Mediacampus, and to question the way our clothes are produced. A week before, a dressing room was organised by students of the school with more than 15 stands. It was truly a period of responsible fashion at the Mediacampus.
Wishing to involve as many students as possible in this event, we called upon the Chardon Savard workshop, the fashion & design school in Nantes. A promotion had been instructed to create a collection mainly made with recycled materials.
We therefore set up 3 events:
Fashion Revolution Week was a real success and we hope this project will continue. So much the better if we succeeded, even a little, in changing the students' consumption patterns or at least in making them think positively about sustainable fashion.
I try to integrate responsible fashion into my daily life as much as possible:
Buying less and better: avoiding buying clothes I don't need or wear once a year.
Find out where the clothes I buy come from and consume Made in France
Sorting for giving, reselling (thanks Vinted), and upcycling
Buying second-hand: take a tour of recycling and second-hand shops...
Choosing durable and essential materials for the skin
