Sweatshop is an interactive fashion performance. There’s plenty of evidence of how bad the fashion industry is, but not many chances to experience a real alternative. With Sweatshop you can replace the carbon emissions with your own sweat, to create a unique garment, live printed with a collaborative print on the streets. You pedal our bike powered overlocker, whilst a skilled garment worker puts your sweatshirt together in front of you. It’s an insight that changes how you view fashion, what its meaning can be and how we can recapture it’s value for our communities. Fabric printing will be taking place alongside the Sweatshop both activities are supported by Make it in Brixton.
