Eco Fashion Week

SUSTAINABLE ECO-CHIC
RUNWAY | EDUCATION | POP UP SHOPS

Green is now more than just a color for the fashion industry!

Eco Fashion Week is an annual event produced by FABRIC during Earth Week. It is a week-long event created to educate the public on sustainable fashion and to celebrate, recognize, and support sustainable fashion brands. Every year, EcoFW includes sustainable fashion shows, pop-up shops, educational panel discussions, and highlights sustainable events that take place all over Arizona and at FABRIC.

All proceeds go to FABRIC Tempe, an Arizona non-profit organization that supports apparel entrepreneurs with sustainable resources.

This project is partially funded by a City of Tempe - Community Arts Grant

Repurposed Jeans Fashion Show

  • 6:30PM-Event Opens
  • 7:00PM- Fashion Show and Award Ceremony
  • Tempe Marketplace Main Stage
  • 2000 E Rio Salado Pkwy, Tempe, AZ 85281
  • Each year, FABRIC's reFABRICate Fashion Show features upcycled designs that have been repurposed and recreated by community members from various garments and cutting floor scraps.
  • This year, and the past few years, the reFABRICate show has focused primarily on one of the industry's most unsustainable items....DENIM. FABRIC partners with Tempe Marketplace, Goodwill, Dave & Busters, and Green Living Magazine to engage the community in repurposing thrifted denim jeans items into new, runway-worthy creations. The jeans are redesigned/upcycled by FABRIC members (established and emerging designers & brands) as well as fashion teachers & students and are featured on the stage at Tempe Marketplace.

WHO MADE MY CLOTHES?

EcoFW was inspired by the efforts of Fashion Revolution and every year we encourage our community to join the revolution and ask #WhoMadeMyClothes.

Fashion Revolution was founded in the wake of the Rana Plaza disaster in 2013. Since then, they have grown to become the world’s largest fashion activism movement, mobilizing citizens, brands and policymakers through research, education, and advocacy.
