She said: “The industry has a lot of catching up to do, and while we’re using…deadstock, we also need to research new materials and get to a stage where fully recycled or sustainable fabrics are available to the wider public”.

From launch, brands and curators include Bianca Saunders, Singer Sewing Machines, By Rotation, MDX University, Fashion Revolution, Red Carpet Green Dress, Maison Lyons, and We are Kin.
