"Street Stitchers" mend clothes in public to encourage better relationships with garments

AFP, 16 Sep 2021
On a busy South London high street, a line of "Street Stitchers" mend their clothes in front of big fast fashion retailers to encourage people to think about their relationship to their clothes and to raise awareness on the necessity to repair garments rather than buy new ones. According to the founder of the Street Stitching movement Suzi Warren, the event, which "isn't a protest in any way", aims to show "there is an alternative to just buying a lot of quick cheap disposable clothes", and takes place in 50 cities across Britain and 15 other countries to mark Sustainable Fashion Week.
