Leading the Way with Recycling and Sustainability – Westfield Good Festival
A big well done to Westfield shopping centre (London White City) for promoting recycling and sustainability. Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield is an owner, developer and operator of sustainable, high-quality real estate assets in the most dynamic cities across Europe and the United States. The Group operates 78 shopping centres in 12 countries and is dedicated to creating and operating unique sustainable places that reinvent communities being together.
Westfield regularly hosts innovative events and experiences and from the 26th May the London centres put on the Westfield Good Festival, which the Fashion-Enter Ltd (FEL) team were, and are, thrilled to be a part of. Westfield visitors were invited to discover a world of conscious consumption, sustainable fashion, waste reduction, upcycling with a series of events and workshops.
On bank holiday Monday FEL team members hosted two workshops Refreshed Threads an upcycling workshop and The Perfect Fit where participants could learn different hand stitching techniques to achieve the correct fit. FEL’s CEO Jenny Holloway, also presented a masterclass, ‘Behind the seams of ethical and sustainable fashion’ to talk about ethical and sustainable practices in the industry from audits to greenwashing.
Jenny commented: “I have to say, I think it is very impressive that a leading shopping centre such as Westfield has been actively promoting sustainability and recycling. Today, 29th May, we held three seminars / workshops with a presentation and Q&A at the end of the day.
“It is unusual for Fashion-Enter to do consumer-facing events but this was really enjoyable, it was really well organised by the staff of Westfield and Amplify. We had such positive feedback from all the participants on the day. Lots of pictures were taken, as you can see. We had requests from the participants to replicate these seminars again, but interestingly people were interested in making their own garments to sell!”
