Textile Waste Reimagined
Fashion & costumes
Fibre & textile arts
Outside Lennard Taylor Design studio, you will find a cloud of textile waste from clothing production reimagined into something beautiful. Scrap fabrics will hang from the trees with facts about the fashion industry and its destruction towards our planet. Join us to learn about how you can begin thinking less like a consumer and more like a conscious citizen who advocates for social and environmental justice within the fashion industry. The shop will be open to explore the art on the walls and the Winnipeg made clothing on the racks. When entering the shop, please wear a mask and sanitize your hands when you come in.
This event is free.
Lennard Taylor is an artist and fashion designer in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Lennard designs versatile and universally flattering fashion pieces that are built to last, without having a lasting impact on the environment. Lennard's designs fuse together fashion and art. The uniqueness of his designs have attracted clients from all over the world. His hand painted garments draw attention to those wearing them and gives the wearer the confidence to take on the world. At Lennard Taylor, we want to change the way people shop for clothing. We strive to use the most high-quality and sustainable fabrics that allow our customers to wear their clothing for life. With the fashion industry being the second largest polluter in the world, we don’t allow any of our scrap fabrics from production to end up in a landfill. Instead, we take each piece of scrap fabric to create something new. We see clothing as living garments. They tell a story of who you are and where you’ve been. This is why if you rip, tear or stain your garment, Lennard will repair it for you and give your piece new life.
