THE Great Green Wardrobe display, which provides tips on making sustainable fashion choices was a success.

Part of Winchester Green Week and Sustainable Fashion Week, it has stood in The Brooks Shopping Centre since Monday, September 25. 

Members from the Smart Living Team and Hampshire County Council were there throughout the week to answer questions from the public.

The jumpsuit in the display made by Making Space has been a crowd favourite, with its details inspiring people on how to repair and make more use of the current clothes they own. It can be as simple as trying on different garments together to create a new outfit, thereby saving clothes from being thrown out.

Recycling has also been on the agenda, with the county council pointing out innovative businesses trying to disrupt the fast fashion model, such as Well Worn—a clothing shop in Middle Brook Street, who ran textile workshops which the county council funded. 

There is also the Repair Cafe in Winchester, which now does textile repairs and can be a potential option to explore once the display finishes. 

However, more awareness is needed around fast fashion and buying secondhand clothes.
The display will stay in the centre until Sunday, October 8.
