We are excited to announce the launch of Wardrobe Crisis Academy. The first course is ‘Sustainable Fashion 101’, an introductory 6-week course that teaches all things sustainability. The AFC together with Arch and Hook have joined forces to present this learning course which delivers a thorough basic knowledge of the issues driving sustainable and ethical fashion today and what’s being done to solve them.
Joined by international industry experts, Clare Press takes the role of instructor to teach the courses core themes of workers, environment, materials and waste.
Delivered in an engaging mixed media format online, with videos, audio presentations, journal prompts and even meditations, it’s designed to appeal broadly. Perfect for anyone who’s not a sustainability expert, from retail staff and PRs through to founders and managers.
The course concludes with going inwards and asking what the learner can do with inspiration? How will you apply what you've learned and workshopped to your own life and work, and to the fashion industry more broadly? To conclude this course, you'll get essential tools, guidance to write your action plan along with a certificate of completion.
The course launches May 20, with new content published each week and bonus live lessons.
