Remade in Wolves: Raising Awareness of Ethical Fashion with University of Wolverhampton and Compton

uwccThe University of Wolverhampton and Compton Care have entered into a partnership to form a brand-new ethical fashion project called ‘Remade in Wolves.’

University students studying Fashion & Textiles at the University’s Wolverhampton School of Art attended a series of workshops this week (September 21-23) and visited Compton Care’s flagship Retail Plus store in the city centre to practise the new skills they have learnt.

The workshops focused on raising awareness of ethical fashion, such as upcycling and fast fashion, in addition to styling.

Students had also taken part in a styling workshop, dressing mannequins in the windows of the large retail store, in addition to an education session on ‘fast fashion’ – looking at how to reduce waste created by the mass production of cheap clothing.
