Catch an array of upcycled, vintage and sustainable garments on the catwalk in BS2 next month.
On Wednesday 21 September, the UK's first 'Sustainable Fashion Week' will debut its all-new catwalk show at grade II listed creative space, The Mount Without.
The event bills itself as an exploration of creative clothing aiming to change attitudes towards buying new, encouraging attendees to view their wardrobe in a new light and end the fast-fashion cycle.

The catwalk show revolves around four main themes, namely: regenerate, rewear, repurpose, and reconnect, each brought to life by one of the event's partners.
These partners include clothing rental company Wear My Wardrobe Out and Black2Nature, an organisation fostering environmentally focused conversations with ethnically diverse communities.
Sustainable business hub Future Leap has teamed up with popular clothing brand Lucy & Yak, and the City of Bristol College will get the models catwalk ready with ethical makeup products.
The show will be led by local drag artist, Astro Zenica, entertaining attendees with an equal parts absurd, heartfelt and humourous theatrical performance.
Amelia Twine, founder of Sustainable Fashion Week, said in a statement: "By showcasing how pre-love and sustainable fashion can be worn again and again in a variety of ways, we hope to inspire visitors to look at what they already have in their wardrobes and get creative!
"Just by switching up your perspective on what you already have, or swapping for something new, you're already disrupting the fast-fashion cycle."
The catwalk show is part of a wider week of events, workshops, film screenings, augmented reality experiences and talks, all focused on promting sustainable fashion.
