Green Catwalk 2018

Badminton School Art students highlight the wasteful nature of the "Wear it once" culture.
The planning behind the catwalk.
The planning behind the catwalk.
The Fashion industry is currently seen as one of the most wasteful and polluting international industries and has very limited policies to protect its workers; with many consumers completely unaware of how detrimental, the ‘wear it once’ concept is for the environment. 

Badminton is trying to buck this trend and make everyone more aware of the implications the Fashion industry is having on the environment.

On Wednesday 7th November, over 40 models took part in the Badminton School catwalk to show off the amazing outfits that have been created over this past term. Our Green Catwalk Fashion Show was organised by Phoebe, a Sixth Form Pupil, studying Art, Geography and Biology, in order to raise awareness of the need for increased sustainability in Fashion.

All of the six collections displayed on the catwalk were made from either second hand clothes or clothes that were on sale and risked being sent to landfill, thus supporting a circular economy and reducing waste.

Thank you to everyone who took part and helped make this an event to remember and congratulations to all those involved for using their talents and skills in such a positive way.
