For two consecutive days: 22nd - 24th April, 2022, Lagos Fashion Week will return with the 3rd edition of Woven Threads in partnership with Fashion Revolution & Fashion Open Studio. The hybrid showcase seeks to facilitate conversations with all stakeholders across fashion’s value chains centered around responsible production and consumption.
This year, Woven Threads will again address the need to cultivate sustainable practices within the industry to build circular value cycles with a focus on efficient social and economic growth models. This season we are digging deeper into circularity in the fashion ecosystem and exploring conversations about the role technology plays in enabling sustainable practices and improving the lifecycle of garments. Topics will range from rentals, metaverse, NFTs and buying digital fashion. The showcase will highlight designers that take into account both environmental and socio-economic sustainable practices that address the issues of landfill and over-consumerism such as: NKWO, Lagos Space Programme, Maxhosa, Shem Paronelli, Maliko, amongst others.
For the first time, the Green Access 2022 cohort will also be showcasing at this year’s edition of Woven Threads. With sustainability at its core, Green Access aims to inspire young creatives to consciously begin to explore sustainable ways of achieving their creative goals while simultaneously discovering new talent.
Launched for the first time, at the SS22 showcase in October, 2021 - the blockchain enabled Swap Shop is back in collaboration with Fru Girls and Global Fashion Exchange. Putting into practice the foundations of a circular economy that prioritizes reuse, reduce & recycle, The Swap Shop initiative invites consumers to think about the ways they can effect change with their own buying choices by facilitating the exchange of pre-owned items through swapping, sharing, donating and resale.
Lagos Fashion Week will be leveraging technology to speak to the future of sustainable fashion in Africa with interactive video presentations, live studio tours, static fashion installations, salons, workshops, and fashion films showcasing the future of fashion beyond creativity.
Woven Threads III is an initiative of Style House Files & Lagos Fashion Week. It is supported by Lush Hair, and TECNO.
