Event description
Thought provoking evening of recycled fashion, film and panel discussion about how we can make a positive impact through our fashion choices

About this Event

The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing ?

It is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world.

The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically.

An inspiring re-fashion show and panel discussion will be held after the screening, exploring ways to help create a more sustainable future.

Jen Gale, published author, speaker and sustainability expert will join us to speak about her "Sustainable-ish" journey and to share her best sustainable tips and tricks.

Chloe Haywood, award-winning sustainable milliner, will also be with us, to talk about her journey as a sustainable designer/maker and how sustainability can be achieved in fashion.

Ollie Phipps – Chippenham’s fabulous Community and Engagement manager will be on stage, compering the evening, making sure you are having a fabulous time.

“We have the ability to be a part of the kind of world we want to have or to be part of the destruction that we say we’re against.” - Andrew Morgan
