Body-Positive Tailoring: Remaking of an Old Tradition

October 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

A discussion with Drea Johnson of Hidden Opulence Design and Alyssa Pichardo of LP Mode on how to incorporate modern tailoring into a body-positive and sustainable wardrobe.

Learn how modern tailoring can transform your clothing into a sustainable wardrobe through a virtual talk with Drea Johnson of Hidden Opulence Design House and Alyssa Pichardo of LP Mode. Drea and Alyssa will chart the history of tailoring and altering garments to fit your body and style and break down terms like “made-to-measure” and “upcycling” to showcase how local tailors are reshaping old traditions to support body positivity, diversity, and self-acceptance.

Drea and Alyssa believe sustainable textile traditions go beyond materials and require a better understanding of how garment construction and alterability over a lifetime can reduce the ecological footprint of fashion. They will offer realistic solutions for participants to learn how to embrace their body by transforming their wardrobe into a set of garments that last. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of what modern tailoring is all about and how they can shop for, upcycle and alter garments that will grow with them throughout their lives.

This is a paid event. The cost of attendance is $27.
