TEA ’N CHAT with Ros Studd, who talks about her work with Repair What you Wear and how sustainability is at the front of everything they do. A session talking about the effects of the fashion industry on climate change and looking at different essential mending techniques that can be taught in class.


Rosalind Studd imageRosalind Studd & Elahe Alavi started up Repair What You Wear in  response to austerity and climate change, a recognition of the need that small things will make a difference to individuals and society. Their website includes classroom activities and resources: https://repairwhatyouwear.com/education/

Clothes mending can save money and reduce landfill at a time that both are essential, but when mending skills have all but disappeared.  Set up and funded by a former retail buyer and a graphic designer, the teaching is clear and accessible, designed to empower when we can all feel helpless in the face of change.

Ros teaches fashion textiles in Scotland, starting out as a retail buyer and product developer for the big fashion names.  Textiles are her thing and she loves manufacturing, just not the current levels of pollution and waste.  The project came about when realising how much money she saved by mending her own children’s clothes, but others did not have the skills to make this choice.  The website is all about proper teaching and what the student can achieve for themselves.
