Students stage eco-fashion event
11:00am Wednesday 20th February 2013 in News
An award-winning fashion show where old and worn clothes are transformed into new garments made a return to Oxford yesterday. Students from Oxford and Cherwell Valley College strutted their stuff on the catwalk at ReFashion.
Visitors could bring their old clothes, swap them, give them to charity, or learn how to repair them.
Stallholder Polly Freer, right, showed off the yarn she creates from T-shirt off-cuts that would otherwise be dumped.
Mrs Freer, 32, said: “It was wonderful to be part of something so creative.
“And it was inspiring to see things that some people class as rubbish used in such a way.”
