Building a Capsule Wardrobe Collection

Registration not required

Thursday, May 18, 2017

6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Carrico/Ft. Thomas Branch

Description

Did you know that the average woman only owned 36 items of clothing in 1930?  Today, that number is 150. 

Did you know that the apparel industry accounts for 10% of global carbon emissions and remains the second largest industrial polluter, second only to oil?

Somewhere along the way, we started believing that buying things and staying on trend would make us happy, whole, or confident. We started to believe that shopping would make our life better.  It’s time to pause, change our way of thinking, and reverse direction.  We can change the way we consume by being intentional in our choices. 

Blake Smith, CEO of Cincinnati’s Cladwell, will discuss how cheap clothes hurt our wallets, the environment, and the workers who make them.  He’ll also offer a solution to today’s trend of Fast Fashion:  building a capsule wardrobe.  No more low quality, disposable clothing.  No more consumerism and being a slave to trends. 

Cladwell believes that when you cut clutter, you make room for more important things. Things that don't take up space in your dresser drawers. Things that really matter. 

Age range: Adults
