ReGo: Our Story in the Making – Exhibition


A brand-new, three-week long fashion exhibition called ReGo: Our Story in the Making is coming to East London from 19th May – 5th June 2022 – exploring how fashion activism can have a positive impact on social change and shift the prevailing narrative around youth violence, through a bespoke fashion collection created using repurposed knives taken off the streets. The free exhibition is supported by the Foundation for Future London and London College of Fashion. The exhibition will showcase a collection of jewellery, bags, dresses and garments co-created by young people from East London, in collaboration with local fashion brands including Michelle-Lowe Holder, Fibre Lab, The Reclaimery and CQ Studio. The pieces are all made from repurposed metal from knives received from KnifeSafe – an organisation that aims to reduce knife crime, by getting knives off the streets

Commenting on the exhibition, Dr Francesco Mazzarella of London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion and the ReGo Co-Project Lead, said:”Project ReGo has enabled a multidisciplinary team to tackle the systemic issue of youth violence, including young people in local activities and community life in order to redesign their own future. As a result, the young people have strengthened their voice and gained agency through the learning of new skills, which will hopefully have a long-lasting impact in their lives. Overall, we intend to demonstrate how fashion activism can be used to shape better lives and address social justice, nurturing sustainability and prosperity for all.” 

Hosted at The Lab – a recently opened creative hub dressed up by RÆBURN 

Following the exhibition, the collection will be available for rent via LOANHOOD – an innovative platform offering a sustainable and accessible way to refresh wardrobes and wear unique high-end items that people might not otherwise have access to.

19 May – 5 June 2022 (Thursdays – Sundays only)

12 – 6pm | Free entry

Address: Lab E20, E20 1JB
