Initiated by independent cultural and social enterprise, Post-Museum, and co-organised by Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), the third edition of the Renew Earth Sweat Shop sought to bring awareness to the growing issue of fashion waste.
As part of a seven-week Special Term module, students from NAFA researched, designed and presented sustainable solutions for the fashion industry—which culminated in a public showcase at [email protected] from 22 to 24 July 2022.
The students led interactive upcycling workshops to engage the public by bringing together fashion, art and environmental sustainability. Utilising fashion waste such as discarded clothing and fabric scraps, participants were guided by the students to craft wearable accessories and decorative art.
