Remodel and Repair: A Fashion Circle Event presented by Fashion District and The Trampery

2:00 pm at Online

Join Fashion District and The Trampery at Fashion Circle, an event series for fashion businesses to learn and develop their network. We are delighted to launch Fashion Circle as part of the programme of events to celebrate Poplar Works' 1st Birthday. Each Fashion Circle event will focus on a different theme and we will be kicking off the series with 'Remodel and Repair' to explore the growing interest in creating a 'Keep It Culture'. 

Moderated by Helen Lax, from Fashion District and Patrick Scally from The Trampery, two fashion tech start-ups driving forward the ‘Keep It Culture’ will fuel our discussion. Nina Van Volkinburg, CEO and Co-Founder of RETURE, will be accompanied by Poplar Works based designer, Joao Maraschin to discuss the importance of valuing the garments we already own and the benefits of upcycling as a means to extending the life of clothes whilst supporting independent creatives.

Josephine Philips, the Founder of Sojo App, which aims to take away the hassle of repairing your clothes by providing an easy alteration service, will share insights into how research has sculpted their business journey, and their strategies for growth in a changing fashion landscape.

Book on the link, join the discussion and also take part in some speed networking with the fashion community.

Poplar Works, a home for anyone working or training in fashion and making, is celebrating its first birthday with a series of online events to mark its impact since launching at the start of the covid-19 pandemic. Discover the full birthday programme running from 27 February to 16 March.
