“Fashion This” Series

Fast fashion depends on cheap prices, sweatshops, child labor and overconsumption. It pollutes water supplies, generates massive amounts waste and is unsustainable. While most of us want to be thoughtful, intentional consumers, the scale of the problem can be overwhelming.

“Fashion This” is a series of exhibitions and events that shine a light on harmful fast fashion practices while also proposing practical, small-scale solutions for anyone who wants a fashionable closet that doesn’t depend on waste and exploitation. All of the events take place at either St. Norbert College or Silver Lake College.
