‘Who Made My Clothes’: you might have already heard about this slogan. The Fashion Revolution Week started this week in many countries.
This worldwide movement has been launched to raise consciousness about the work and life conditions of the makers working for Fast Fashion labels. It started right after the tragic accident in Bangladesh that killed more than 1’000 people, three years ago.

About 4’500 miles away from Bangladesh, Switzerland is supporting the movement too. How we do it?

Thanks to Martina and Pauline from the conscious fashion brand Jungle Folk, many events and speeches are taking place. Last night we were at the Salon Bar for my DIY jewelry workshop, Bright and Bold.

This place is beautiful, it was the ideal location for the workshop, with its colorful and metallic decoration.

We were five women, and had a lot of fun to turn old jewelry pieces into new ones. And also to repair them. Who doesn’t have broken jewelry in the drawer?

When I think about it, I find it always fascinating to see how the ideas are evolving along the workshop. For me it’s a kind of performance since I’m giving many design and technical directions in a limited time period. And I love this.

Thank you all for being there, we had a bright night -and made a beautiful mess : ) 

You’ll find on my Instagram more about the jewelry pieces, before and after the upcycling. For those who are living in Zurich, feel free to join on Saturday at Volkshaus for the final event of Fashion Revolution Week. And in case you’re looking for joining a next workshop, a calendar will be soon online.

Take care, à bientôt.
