92 million tons of waste was created by the fashion industry in 2015. It’s time to support a more circular model of fashion and luckily we have the Portuguese for that. Uncover independent brands and upcoming Portuguese designers, who’re demonstrating transparency, circularity, renewability and zero waste. Meet local shop owners, creators and innovators of Porto, all in one afternoon! Support those who dare to be different and impact our planet in a positive way. Plus enjoy up to 20% off in stores! We'll wander through Porto’s most creative districts, hearing tales of how sustainable materials came to light, such as broken umbrellas collected on windy days, to be transformed into stylish swimwear. We'll continue down streets where innovation coexists with tradition and discover alternative ways to use textile waste and natural materials in fashion. With many stores ticked off the list, it's time to meet Elodie, the creator and baker of DUH Vegan doughnuts. Enjoy the taste of her daily special (included), along with a traditional Portuguese café (not included). Sustainability is so hot right now (literally the planet is warming up) and Porto has A LOT to offer. Join this experience to unearth beautiful designs, adapt to a conscious wardrobe, empower the locals and be in awe of local craftsmanship.
I'm the founder The Mindful Step and an advocate for eco - friendly fashion. My passion started at university, as I began to explore the realms of costume design. I also had a part-time job working in retail, which opened up my eyes to the horrors of fast fashion. I was shocked to see the dramatic turnover of trends and how quickly items were shoved to the back and put on sale. I'd make use of unwanted clothes by transforming them into something suitable for the stage. Now I'm living in Porto and absorbing the creative vibe of the city, including the slow fashion scene. I've made connections with local designers and innovators, who also want to be apart of the movement towards a more sustainable planet. Join me to celebrate Portuguese sustainable craftmanship!
