About the Event
Spaces for this event are limited - please only reserve a space if you are confident that you are able to attend. If you change your mind, you can also cancel your ticket any time through your booking on the Green Hive website.
There will never be a better time to embrace reusing and upcycling your pre-loved clothing and textiles, so come along and get inspired at this Slow Fashion Show!
We’ll be raising money for Green Hive; an environmental and community charity based in Nairn, to launch their free drop-in Fabric Workshop - open for anyone to join who wants to learn how to sew, upcycle, mend or create new and exciting fabric products from recycled textiles.
Re Fashion Edinburgh will bring together 10 designers, supported by models, hairdressers, make-up, and photography artists, all sharing a passion for sustainability and ethical creation, and aiming to make a difference in an industry that desperately needs to change.
We want to showcase both the local designer's incredible work and inspire you, the audience, to try something new with your wardrobes. Book your tickets now and join us in a celebration of sustainable fashion.

This is a crucial time to take affirmative action and make critical decisions about the way we view textiles and textile waste. A report commissioned by Zero Waste Scotland in 2023 found that
"Scotland consumes 38% more per person than the global average including textile-related products. There is an urgent need for Scotland to use our current renewable energy innovations, such as wind and hydropower, to work with global partners to address cleantech energy, that will reduce the carbon emissions within clothing imported into the UK and Scotland."
And the most recent Preferred Fiber And Materials Market Report from the Textile Exchange found that
"Global fiber production increased to a record 113 million tonnes, reversing slower growth seen during COVID-19. This figure has almost doubled in the last 20 years and is expected to boom to 149 million tonnes by 2030 if business as usual continues.
The low cost of virgin fossil-based synthetic fibers still makes them a popular choice. Polyester still holds the highest market share of any fiber at 54%, of which only 14.8% is recycled. This is due to the competitively low price of fossil-based polyester."
