Circular Design Workshop

Mindful Fashion are delighted to have Tara St James, an international circular design specialist, visiting us in New Zealand. Tara will run a circular design workshop for Mindful Fashion members, sharing global best practice with practical activities for you to learn from. The workshop is targeted at anyone working in the industry - design, production, product development, textiles and trims. The more cross-pollination across roles we have the more circular thinking can be introduced in every aspect of your business.

  • Using recyclable or biodegradable materials
  • Understanding mono-materiality
  • Understanding the landscape for end of use
  • Low impact and circular trims
  • End of life considerations for materials

Sign up to attend.

  • Mindful Fashion members - complimentary
  • Non-members. We have limited paid spaces available for non-members. Email [email protected] for more info.
