It was Go Green week at UAL last week and to celebrate and bring more environmental awareness to the lovely students across London we held a variety of events...

Monday was The Green Feast with a delightful array of green foods on offer...think cucumber sandwiches and kiwi fruits heehee...and slightly toxic looking green marshmallows...I loved the idea but thought more emphasis could have been put on sourcing ACTUAL green food..so fairtrade/organic?!

Tuesday Stitch and Bitch London held a customisation workshop and a knit and natter!

On thursday FATE held a SwapShop at The Hub, it was a great success and has lots of fun customising old clothes and swapping for new ones!

Friday was a great night for Fashion and the Environment...we held a special night with lovely speakers from EJF, Ethical Fashion Forum and People Tree and also showed a short film we had made (with amazing editing done by Saida/Julia.Una/Ruby!) focussing on the issues involved in fashion that concern us the most! A fun night was had by all!!

At the moment I am swamped by work but promise to post up my finished products when done...


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
