Christopher Ræburn: Sustainability in Fashion
Christopher Ræburn, the award-winning British fashion designer, has brought his legendary workshops to Leeds on numerous occasions and taken part in Fashion Space events on Briggate.
Workshops hosted in transformed shipping containers have consistently drawn crowds of intrigued bystanders and inspired budding fashion graduates and textile novices alike.
A graduate of the Royal College of Art, the world-famous designer is known for his re-appropriation of military fabrics and iconic outerwear created from de-commissioned parachutes.
