What is the Relove Fashion Competition?
The Relove Fashion competition was open to secondary schools in the Eastern Midlands Waste Region and it encouraged students to take a deeper look at how their clothing is made. Ten local authorities came together to create the Relove Fashion competition to help students explore creative reuse options such as upcycling, repairs, alterations and mending.
