Fashion changes season by season, but now a season only lasts 7 days in the fast fashion cycle. Have you ever felt the change of the seasons or could we?
When fashion changes from time to time, it accompanies us through phases of our lives or our beloved ones’ lives.
Some of them mean nothing but some recall a knowing smile or even make us shed our tears. They deserve to last long.
May I invite you to join in Time Wardrobe, to open your wardrobes and look back on what you have once loved. Recalling your memories with them, let’s go through a 7-day stitching practice and re-fashion your preloved garments. Your examples of small change will make a big difference to the world!
LET'S RECONNECT WITH OUR HANDS AND STiTCH UP THE MEMORABLES.
