Fashion industry is one of the greatest polluters on the planet depleting water sources, ecosystems and people across the planet.
Fixing Fashion tries to educate a global community on various knowledge and techniques helping people to care, repair and upgrade their clothes.
Fixing Fashion tries to tackle the various problems of the fashion Industry. We started with a simple question: what kind of fashion does the world need right now?
And the answer is: we don’t need anything new. There are enough clothes and material out there for decades to come. We need to get resourceful again.
Fixing fashion is a clothing brand. But unlike all the others, we don’t want to sell you anything. The opposite. We provide knowledge on how to fix, repair, resize and upgrade. Trying to help you keep your clothes longer.
We created an inspirational collection that tries to set a new standard of what a new fashion could look like. And we are building a community of people around the world following this ethos. Proudly Fixing Fashion. Together.
We made a collection exclusively from fixed, upgraded and repaired clothes. It’s a catalog of possibilities for people to get inspired. Two old shirts stitched together, old jeans re-coloured or broken holes patched up. Inspiring a new resourceful fashion.
In order to make fixing clothes easier and less scary we setup an Academy, a place for people to learn how to care and repair their clothes. On the Academy you can find basic sewing techniques, videos on how to repair and recipes to learn how to colour your clothes. An Academy full of knowledge that helps everyone to start fixing fashion.
There is a lot more to explore when it comes to fixing and upgrading clothes. Many techniques to research and experiments to be made. We are building a community of like-minded people that want to fix fashion. Learn from each other and improve our knowledge.
You can’t tackle a massive problem like the fashion industry on your own, it requires a big group of people, a cultural movement.
Using #fixingfashion we bring together these people. Use the hashtag to get inspired from others and to share your own fixes. Your work can inspire many others to follow.
Start fixing and proudly wearing (and sharing) your fixed clothes.
