Love Your Clothes

Love Your Clothes aims to reduce the environmental impact of clothing by raising awareness of the value of clothes and encouraging people to think about the way they buy, use and dispose of their clothing. Every year an estimated £140 million worth (around 350,000 tonnes) of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK. Love Your Clothes provides tips, guides and inspiration to fix, upcycle and care for clothes and give them a little more love and will be staging a variety of activities throughout Cardiff Fashion Week.

On Saturday 29 October, the CFW 2016 events will peak with a designer village and catwalk shows at the Cardiff Masonic Hall. You can see all the latest trends and designs from Wales based designers, students and retailers and browse stands.
