FASHION REIMAGINED Fashion designer Amy Powney of cult label Mother of Pearl is a rising star in the London fashion scene. Raised off-the-grid in rural England by activist parents, Amy has always felt uneasy about the devastating environmental impact of her industry. When she wins the coveted Vogue award for the Best Young Designer of the Year, which comes with a big cash prize, Amy decides to use the money to create a sustainable collection from field to finished garment, and transform her entire business. Over the following three years, her own personal revolution becomes the precursor of a much bigger, societal change. 5:00pm Pre-Screening Clothing Swap! We are excited to partner with GFX (Global Fashion Exchange) and SwapCo for a unique all gender clothing swap. Bring up to 10 gently used clothing items you’d like to let go of. And then shop for FREE. 10 for 10! Expect to meet new interesting people, network, and refresh your wardrobe.
Lite bites and refreshments! Alcohol for sale by donation. Proceeds go to REMAKE. This would be a great opportunity to gift students at St. Thomas University professional clothing and shoes for future interviews, events, and meetings.
