Waste Free Fashion Collective take catwalk to Margate shoreline

Garments created from items collected on Kent coast


The Waste Free Fashion Collective will take a live catwalk to the Margate shoreline in October as part of the Margate Festival and Turner Prize celebrations.

Hailing from Whitstable and Margate, Erin Laurel Hayhow, Robert George Sanders, Gloria Jane Royer and Dream Safari will make garments from 100% waste materials, many which were found on the Kent coast.

“Our garments will be made from waste materials, including some seaside waste found when beach combing,” says Hayhow on Instagram.

In an campaign to advocate for slow fashion and try to make changes to the industry, the collective has hosted three similar events at Turner Contemporary, and one at Soho House in Berlin.

Viewers are asked to congregate on the steps on Main Sands, past the harbour armour at 12:45 for 1pm start. Make sure there is space in between the crowds as models will be walking through from the old town!

When: Sunday 6th October @ 12.45pm

Where: Margate Main Sands
