A two-week sustainability-focused fashion pop-up in Wan Chai, Made in Love, will be presented by social venture Luxarity from November 17.
As well as presenting a curated collection of pre-loved luxury fashion items donated by the community, being sold for a fraction of the original price, the pop-up will offer a range of activities.
Being produced exclusively for Made in Love are capsule collections of 100 limited-edition items from upcycled textiles created by four young Hong Kong designers: Cynthia & Xiao, Ffixxed Studios, Loom Loop and Yeung Chin.
Lending their support to the cause of creating a future for fashion that is sustainable and transparent are such entities as Design Trust, Lane Crawford, the HK Design Centre and Swire Properties.
All proceeds from Luxarity go toward supporting creatives and designers with educational grants focusing on sustainability, innovation and conscious production. Made in Love will support alumni from Parsons School of Design and SCAD Hong Kong graduates who have shown a commitment to using fashion technologies for sustainable product development.
“We believe that innovation and sustainability are core to the future of the creative industry,” says Luxarity founder Cristina Ventura. The organisation’s mission is to build a community focused on sustainability and innovation by selling curated pre-loved luxury goods and upcycled capsule collections, collaborating with strategic partners, and giving all the benefits back to the community through grants.
Activities at Made in Love include workshops on personalising and upcycling clothes, plus a chance to shoppers to meet the award-winning designers behind the capsule collections.
There will also be a discussion on how art and fashion can work together to promote sustainable innovation, as well as a yoga session.
