Fashion Reimagined follows fashion designer Amy Powney of cult label Mother of Pearl, who embarks on a three-year journey to create a sustainable clothing collection from field to finished garment, and transform the way we engage with fashion. Raised off-the-grid in rural England by activist parents, Amy has always felt uneasy about the devastating environmental impact of her industry. When she wins the coveted Vogue award for the Best Young Designer of the Year, Amy decides to use the prize money to create a sustainable collection and transform her entire business.
Fashion Reimagined explores Amy’s journey from outsider in the fashion world, to industry leader as she examines the complexities and waste of the global supply chain, whilst her own personal revolution becomes the precursor of a much bigger societal change.
“This film will shock you, inspire you – and charm you. A must-watch not just for the fashion industry but for everyone who wears clothes” – Jess Cartner-Morley, Associate Editor (Fashion) – The Guardian

+ CLOTHES SWAP
We’re excited to be running another Clothes Swap here at the Town Hall!
The clothes swap will run 6pm – 9pm, and is free to attend. Simply bring along the clothes you no longer love, and swap them for something you do! This is a swap for good-quality adults and kids clothing and shoes.
We’re excited to be joined by some of Trowbridge Environmental’s lovely repairers, who’ll be offering free clothing alterations for anything you may find at the swap.
You don’t have to attend the film to come along to the clothes swap, and vice versa. The clothes swap doesn’t need to be booked, and although there will be film tickets for sale on the door we advise you book the film in advanced to ensure your space.
To avoid the online booking fee please phone our box office on 01225 774306. Open Monday to Saturday, 10am – 4pm.
– Seating arrangements are subject to change due to changes in social distancing regulations.
– Please support the return of our events by taking a lateral flow test before attending.
– Do not attend the event if you are displaying Covid-19 symptoms, have tested positive, or have been a close contact of someone who is infected and are required to self isolate.
