What’s Happening?


Fashion Show : Vox by ReMode

Fashion show including specially created soundtrack and animated films and followed by SWISH event

The theme for ReMode’s Fashion Show is the voice – as an instrument to sing and shout and as the symbolic expression of youth and protest.

An estimated 300,000 tonnes of fashion waste goes into landfill in the UK each year and we’re part of the growing movement of people who want to shout about this.

VOX is a platform for us to share ReMode’s work from the past year – creating sustainable fashion, sharing skills and increasing understanding of climate change issues.

Clothes in this year’s show have been made by participants and volunteers in our workshops and we’re also featuring guest makers and designers from Renfrewshire and Glasgow.

Integrated into the fashion show is a specially created new soundtrack by Anders Rigg and 6 short animated films created by filmmaker Kevin Cameron. The films have been created in workshops with students at UWS, and school pupils from Heriot Primary, Paisley

Alongside the fashion show there will be stalls where you can browse clothes made by local designers working in sustainable fashion, and straight after the fashion show, you can take part in our SWISH event.

  • DOORS OPEN 7pm
  • Fashion shows starts 7.30pm
  • SWISH starts 8.15pm
  • ADVANCE BOOKING ESSENTIAL – TICKETS £5 (£2.50 CONCESSIONS)
