M&S Sustainable Fashion Lab


British retail giant Marks & Spencer (M&S) has been working with the London College of Fashion’s (LCF) Centre for Sustainable Fashion to launch the UK’s first lab dedicated to exploring the future of sustainable design and production.

Located at the Old Truman Brewery in East London, the Sustainable Fashion Lab is a partnership between M&S, the LCF and charity Oxfam. It aims to bring together leading thinkers, designers and stylists to forge new ideas regarding the evolution of sustainable fashion.

The lab is open to the public from April 26 to May 9 2012, giving them an insight into the world of eco-fashion, as well as the chance to create their own pieces in expert-led classes. Visitors are also invited to bring in unwanted items of clothing which, depending on their condition, will either be reused and upcycled in the lab, or donated to Oxfam charity shops.
