"Arizona ECO Fashion Week is an effort to shed light on the unsustainable practices of the modern apparel manufacturing industry and highlight the sustainable solutions" said Johnson. "We hope to educate and engage Arizona designers, businesses, academics, youth, students, experts, and leaders in the community to explore a new frontier in the business of ECO Fashion."
The week includes expert panel discussions, workshops, student conversations, a green trunk show and more. The event will culminate in a "reFABRICate" fashion show highlighting sustainable local brand's collections as well as FABRIC's zero waste "reFABRICate" initiative featuring one-of-a-kind garments created by a team of local designers who breathe new life into AZ Fashion Source's manufacturing scraps. Right after the fashion show, reFABRICate apparel will be available to purchase at the Eco Pop-Up Shop inside FABRIC.
AZ Eco Fashion Week is part of Earth and Fashion Revolution Week. With the support of Fashion Revolution, AZ Eco Fashion Week encourages Arizonans to join in on the conversation at #azecofw and ask #WhoMadeMyClothes on social media during the event. This international effort raises awareness to pressing issues in sustainable fashion and brings international attention to the solution that FABRIC offers with local, small batch manufacturing and design resources.
