RMIT University - Sustainable Fashion Restyling Short Course | Saturday, 05. September 2020

Sustainable fashion is the future of fashion. As one of the most polluting industries in the world, it contributes to about 10% of climate change.



Eco Stylist, Nina Gbor will teach an innovative course to usher students into the new era of ethical and slow fashion with a focus on restyling techniques that reduce clothing waste. Participants will get an understanding of the foundations of sustainable fashion. The course will feature a vast array of restyling skills for curating a super stylish wardrobe that is better for the environment, the people who make our clothes and for a powerful self-image.



Course Content:
