This workshop is part of ETHICAL FASHION day long event and features as a paid event during lunch break. 


Wardrobe Crisis author Clare Press devises a day on fashion ethics featuring designer Bianca Spender, Paul Castro of the label Amassment and others working at the cutting edge to re-conceptualise fashion and how it may contribute to social good. Speakers explore some of fashion’s most critical and topical issues: sustainability, supply chains and the slow fashion movement. By providing space to think, decode and discuss, Ethical Fashion invites you to imagine what a more responsible fashion future might look like.


1:15 PM – 3:00 PM
Sutra Stitching Workshop

Dr Clara Vuletich pauses discussion with a sutra hand-stitching workshop inspired by sacred Kundalini Yoga. This workshop explores the link between Kundalini and the meditative art of hand-stitching. Dr Vuletich’s doctorate, completed in 2017, focussed on sustainable textiles and carbon neutral fashion business which complemented her training as a Kundalini yoga teacher.

Dr Vuletich says, “I have enjoyed seeing the links and parallels between yogic philosophy and ideas around sustainability: the importance of thinking in wholes, understanding each context or individual has their own unique values and needs, and the value in keeping in balance between elements.”
