Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week 2016
DSFW is coming up and will be having their 3rd edition this year. To help you decide in which venues to visit or to do some sustainable shopping or swapping. I made a top 5 list of the events I would like to visit and ofcourse report about it on my blog. Over 300 shops are participating this year and there will be fashionshows, workshops and lectures on sustainable fashion. What I enjoy most is the stories that are being shared online. We each have our own philosophy when it comes to concious living. If you ask me, that's what sustainable fashion is about. Not just sharing our thoughts on eco living, but also caring for eachother because of the fact that we share the story with eachother through fashion.
If you have little time to read through all the information about DSFW, hopefully this top-five will help you through DS Fashion Week and to enjoy your week of concious fashion even more easily. Some events are taking place at the same time or on the same day, so you won't be able to visit and see all, so take your pick.
My top 5:
1. Workshop '13 stukken in 30 dagen' - 12 october '16 at Stedelijk Museum in Zwolle starting 14h00.
