A Gathering of Stitches Slow Fashion Retreat
Sun, Jul 22 @ 3:00 pm - Fri, Jul 27 @ 5:00 pm
Let’s hit the pause button, and see what we can learn about slow fashion at A Gathering of Stitches Slow Fashion Retreat in Saco, Maine with the BF+DA’s Amy DuFault. A veteran of the slow fashion movement, Amy DuFault is a sustainable fashion writer, consultant and Director of Communications at Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator. Having spent the past 20+ years as a journalist (12 of which have been laser focused on sustainable fashion), with bylines in The Guardian, GOOD and other publications, Amy has morphed as a professional writer penning stories about sustainable fashion trends to a less embraced part of the industry focused on human rights, environmental protection and transparency.
Maine is a beautiful place to turn down the volume, shut off the email, leave the phone in your room, and spend some time exploring this relevant movement. Join this group of three world class makers: Cal Patch, Katrina Rodobaugh, and Jessica Lewis Stevens to learn ways to make your garments both beautiful and ethical, and also an expression of your beliefs. All while treading lightly on the planet.
