Launching today: The Regenerative Fashion Hub

We are thrilled to announce that The Textiles Circularity Centre will be taking over The Lab E20 with the launch of The Regenerative Fashion Hub

The Regenerative Fashion Hub is a 6-week exhibition showcase documenting the journey of biowaste –  from source of waste to the consumption of apparel. Featuring research studies, seminars, and ‘open house’ sessions, the event breaks down academic research into sustainable textiles in a creative, accessible way to open up conversations with the public, industry, NGOs, and the government.

The UKRI Interdisciplinary Textiles Circularity Centre (TCC) – funded by the UK Research & Innovation National Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Research programme – is undertaking fundamental research into a circular textiles economy for the UK fashion industry. It is an academic consortium led by the Royal College of Art  and includes Cranfield University, University of Cambridge, University of Leeds, University of Manchester, University College London, and University of York. 

Research in the TCC will help them propose an alternative model for apparel-fashion that will reduce the consumption of materials resources and associated pollution, and grow wellbeing. The Regenerative Fashion Hub is a chance to engage with the public about their research and findings. 

The showcase will be open to visitors to experience the journey of the biowaste resource flow and talk to the research team. There is no need to book, just turn up.

Opening times:

  • October: 19th, 26th, 28th, from 10:00 – 18:00.
  • November: 3rd, 10th, 18th, 24th, from 10:00 – 18:00.  

Location: The Lab E20, 3-4 East Park Walk, East Village, London, E20 1JB
