NWA Fashion Week Promotes Sustainability With Repurposed Clothes

News

Fashion takes on a responsible look Wednesday night in Bentonville. 

And we’re not talking about slick suits and peplum dresses, but repurposed clothes to promote sustainability.

NWA Fashion Week is hosting a Peka Pecha Kucha presentation at Crystal Bridges Wednesday night. 

Four sustainability experts will each present 20 slides in 20 seconds on sustainability in the fashion industry, including retail, manufacturing, design and education.

Students will then model a fashion line they created from repurposed denim clothing. 

One of the speakers, University of Arkansas instructor Lance Charamie, said it’s on us to create environmental change. 

“It’s very important for the consumer to be aware of what’s going on — how can we manage sustainability, what can we do as a consumer and what are these companies doing as a whole,” Charamie said.

The Peka Pecha Kucha presentation is from 7 to 9 on Walker Landing at Crystal Bridges.

It’s free and open to everyone.
