Join journalist Lauren Bravo as she discusses her new book, ‘How To Break Up With Fast Fashion’ to help you give your shopping habits and wardrobe a sustainable overhaul in 2020.
Every year an estimated 300,000 tonnes of used clothing ends up in UK landfills, as the global production of clothes has doubled over the past 15 years. Not only is this unhealthy for the planet, but also our brains and bank balances too. Based on her personal journey of ditching fast fashion in 2019, Lauren will be offering honest and realistic advice on how to adopt a slower approach to shopping and teach you how to make the most of existing items in your wardrobe without compromising on style. Because fashion belongs to everyone, but no outfit should cost us the earth.
Lauren Bravo is a freelance journalist who has written for publications such as Grazia, Time Out, The Guardian and Stylist to name a few. She has covered subjects from fashion to food to feminism and ‘How To Break Up With Fast Fashion’ is her second book, after 2009’s ‘What Would The Spice Girls Do?’
Lauren will be on hand after the talk to sign copies of ‘How To Break Up With Fast Fashion’, £12.99, published by Headline Home, which can be purchased from our Museum Shop.
