About CYC: Hand Me Down

Contact Young Company are BUZZING to be teaming up with Castlefield Viaduct to create Hand Me Down: a theatrical fashion show fighting against fast fashion.

As few as 1% of clothes are recycled, and CYC are rebelling against rampant consumerism by bringing to life the stories woven into garments that we discard.

Join the slow fashion movement with us at Castlefield Viaduct on 27 July. PS, dress to impress in your oldest and most loved threads!
