Fashion Day


On 4/27-23, the school's internal Fashion Revolution Day took place at Nelson Mandela School - as part of the international Fashion Revolution Week. Every year during this week we commemorate the more than 1,300 victims of the garment industry who died ten years ago in the collapse of a textile factory in Bangladesh and would like to make a statement against fast fashion through an ongoing sewing activity to upcycle clothing. At the same time as the very well-attended sewing action on 12 sewing machines, which were made available to us for the day by the Jugendkunstschule Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. Apart from this, the students of the secondary school were able to sift through second-hand clothing and take it home, so that it can be given an extended life. An exhibition on the Fashion Revolution rounded off the event. We were supported by the fashion designer Wilfried Pletzinger, who has been supporting our school in terms of fashion projects for many years. 

Special thanks go to the students who actively supported the day of action and act as ambassadors for Slow Fashion in and outside of our school.
