Sara from Slow Re Purpose invites you to take an active part in your new wardrobe by selecting pieces you want to upcycle, valuing your past choices in terms of colour, cloth or fabric. By repurposing, you and Sara and the on-hand seamstresses will work closely together to deliver a new unique piece: you already have all you need!

“The Fashion School will be present with skilled tutors and seamstresses to make alterations on the spot. This will be donation based, so please bring some cash and get ready for a refreshed wardrobe!”
