      Join Our Sustainable Fashion Journey with "Wear Next" Book Club!

      Join Our Sustainable Fashion Journey with "Wear Next" Book Club!

      You are invited  to a literary adventure that transcends pages and stitches together a narrative of change – with the book "Wear Next" by Clare Press.

      At the intersection of style and sustainability, Vogue's first sustainability editor, Clare Press, takes us on a transformative journey through the tangled threads of the fashion industry in her book, "Wear Next." Are you ready to unravel the mysteries of our clothing choices and discover a more sustainable path? While meeting like minded friends along the way.

      👗 What to Expect:

      It will be a very, very informal and a slow read as its more about digging into each topic. Perfect for the " I am not really a reader" type of book club.

      No sign ups, just occasional meet ups (see at end of this blog for our first one), and you only need to come when you want. No obligations. 

      How fast you read the book is up to you, however and the topics for our meet ups will reflect the chapters in the time frame as we are exploring it. This is our reading schedule for this month:

      January -  Introduction and Unveiling the Fashion Ecosystem

      Week 4: You Choose . 2. Fair (pg 67-82)
