Norwich Council – ReFashion Norwich

Norwich Council have set up an event called ReFashion Norwich as a part of TRAID’s #secondhandfirst week and the European Week for Waste Reduction.


It aims to improve awareness of sustainable fashion in Norwich whilst inspiring the local community to upcycle preloved garments and shop second hand.


After promoting the event via local TV and radio features, social media and local businesses, approximately 400 attendees visited craft stands, upcycling workshops, catwalk shows, and vintage and second-hand stalls.   


Following positive feedback, the Council have decided to hold more textile events in the future and to continue to engage and communicate with residents, voluntary and community organisations, and businesses on the progression of the environmental strategy, understanding that behavioural change is necessary to achieving net carbon zero.
