This event is part of Sustainable Fashion Week – presented by the UBC Sustainability Initiative. Sustainable Fashion Week is an opportunity for students, staff and faculty at UBC to learn more about the social and environmental issues surrounding the “fast fashion” industry, and to explore alternatives including sustainable buying, clothing repair and reuse, and textile recycling.

We acknowledge that this event is happening on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people.
