SuSTYLEability Event: A Sustainable Fashion Extravagance by Green Pioneers for Sustainability

In a world where even a simple outfit takes over 15,000 litres of water to produce, equivalent to taking 317 showers, the need for sustainable fashion has become more urgent than ever. Recognizing this urge, the Green Pioneers for Sustainability (GPS) extracurricular at LPCUWC organised an extraordinary event last year—SuSTYLEability. The event aimed to educate and empowerHong Kong secondary school students about sustainable fashion practices and ignite a spark of change in our community.

First of all, in preparation for the grand SuSTYLEability event, GPS students used the two Open Days to not only showcase their activities but also gain visibility within the community. These events attract numerous guests who visit campus, enabling them to witness firsthand the passion and dedication students have for sustainable fashion. The first Open Day served as an opportunity to collect donated clothes from the community, while the second Open Day featured an impressive fashion show with our own students as the models for the public.


With all the preparations ready, it was time for the awaited SuSTYLEability event, where external students from secondary schools would join us to create their outfits and participate in their own fashion show. 

The SuSTYLEability event, held in November of 2023 at LPCUWC campus, gave an opportunity for outside participants to come together and discuss the significance of sustainable fashion. Students spent a Sunday delving into various aspects of sustainable fashion, exploring both the production side of the fashion industry and the responsibilities we hold as consumers. The event also educated the participants about the role of HK organisations such as Redress, an environmental NGO committed to promoting sustainable fashion.  

One of the highlights of the SuSTYLEability event was the second-hand clothing fashion show, where participants showcased their creativity and raised awareness about the impacts of textile production. 

Finally, The SuSTYLEability event was not just educational; it was also a day filled with joy and connection. Participants from diverse backgrounds and external secondary schools had the opportunity to meet and interact with like-minded individuals who shared a passion for sustainability. 

  The Green Pioneers for Sustainability (GPS) team is committed to making a lasting impact on sustainable fashion practices. They have exciting plans for future events and initiatives, aiming to further inspire and engage the community in sustainable fashion practices.
