Curated by Tamsin Blanchard, and founded by Orsola de Castro, Fashion Revolution Week saw designers from around the world opening up their studios, hosting workshops and talking about how they make their clothes. The aim of the week long series of events is to engage the consumer further in the conversation about who makes our clothes - and to involve them in some of the processes along the way.
As part of the Fashion Revolution programme, Tamsin visited the studios and talked to Sarabande designer-in-residence, John Alexander Skelton, recipient of the Sarabande: The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation Scholarship and winner of the L’Oreal prize at the end of his CSM MA. John recently showed his third menswear collection, at Sarabande HQ, with hand-woven fabrics, one-off jackets made from antique trouser linings as well as Victorian corduroy workers’ trousers, rare breed wools and fabrics made in British mills.
