This challenge is a whole fashion academy in a nutshell!
This year our studio is working on an Eco Textile Academy for fashion students and lovers alike. The online Academy will be a place where you can find a lot of small online courses on fashion skills and sustainability subjects. Think of pattern drawing, sewing skills, making a mood board, working on you own collection and most of all, focusing on doing all of this in a circular and sustainable way. The liberation skirt challenge combines all of the above.

Refuse, reuse, recycle:
Creating a skirt or an outfit based on the ideas of the Dutch liberation skirt is a challenge in itself. In due course I’ll tell you some more about what the liberation skirt is all about. How will this challenge work? During the year I will guide you through the challenge and you will get tips, ideas and we’ll share our progress on Zoom. You will get all the guidance and inspiration you need: from developing your ideas in a mood board, learning some stitches, to actually making your skirt or outfit. All materials used for the skirt or outfit must be recycled or reused.
Joining this challenge will help you to practise what you learn and at the same time you’ll be exploring in what areas you want or need more skills & training. And we’ll have a lot of fun of course!
