CHANGE ROOM
CURIOUS MINDS

Fashion is deeply rooted in culture and our individual perception of identity. However, clothes we choose to wear often do not align with our values. In the 21st century, consumerism and fast fashion got woven in the fabric of our culture. While fast fashion democratized fashion and allowed everyone to communicate through clothing regardless of their economic backgrounds, the modern fashion industry came with major social and environmental costs.

With all the great work the Fashion Revolution movement has been doing since 2014 it has gained an enormous amount of media coverage, especially during the month of April, during the Fashion Revolution Week. However, we believe that the audience for this crucial topic can be broadened and called to action with the help of creative education and local community events.

We are pro fashion, but fashion is not built on the cost of others, environment, or the principals of scarcity, jealousy and lust.  We believe in creativity, craftsmanship and cultural heritage and for most self-expression via fashion. Via events and workshops, Change Room raises awareness and empowers consumers to take control of their wardrobes, make more informed purchasing decisions and develop their own sustainable style. Our goal is to make fair and sustainable fashion and its related information accessible to all interested parties – from fashion business professionals to end-consumers and students. Because we don´t need a handful of people doing it perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly!

CREATIVE EDUCATION

Fashion is a form of art. Indeed, it is the closes and the most intimate and personal way we can engage with art and culture. However, the way we consume fashion today often shows little appreciation and respect for the manpower and creative energy of the individual creators. With our projects, we are questioning the status quo of the fashion industry and consumer behaviour. Aiming to redefine the way we think of fashion and what is fashionable, we decode existing and future trends, and help explain fashion in relation to social, political and technological developments and cultural heritage. We are passionate advocates of creative education and new ways of learning for all, at any age, social class or professional background. Via customized programs for higher education institutions or corporate events, in an authentic and positive way, we inspire people to take action.

EVENTS WITH PURPOSE

As representatives of Fashion Revolution social movement in Düsseldorf, we are committed to raising consumer awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues, showing that change is possible and celebrating those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future. We share stories, lifehacks and expert knowledge, and connect fair fashionistas and conscious consumers in our home region of Düsseldorf. We are pro fashion, but fashion that connect and empowers people and communities. Via upcycling and mending workshops and clothing swapping events, we aim to make fashion more sustainable, social and local again!
