Rebecca Smith: Wearing Wellbeing & Sustainable Fashion: good for you, good for the planet.
Public lecture, 6 pm, Bridport Town Hall
Rebecca Smith will present her research project “flourishing fashion“, which brings together ideas from fashion studies and psychology to investigate how strategies of dress contribute to every day well-being. Her research revealed that the outfits that brings joy often comprise pieces with stories that we want to re-enact, a context within which throwaway fashion loses its appeal.
