Hay Festival Callout

CSF, Hay Festival and H&M invite fashion design students across the UK to participate in the Just Fashion Lab, an experimental space looking to inspire a new generation of fashion designers to consider sustainability as integral to their design process.

If you’re selected you will be invited to take part in a 5-day workshop during May.

Working with a team from H&M, the Environmental Justice Foundation and the CSF, you will explore concepts of designing for sustainability. Participants will work with materials sourced and provided directly from H&M’s global garment collection initiative, which works towards repurposing and giving new and extended life to unwanted garments.

Selected participants will be provided with a travel bursary, accommodation and tickets to other events happening at Hay Festival throughout the week.
