e fashion industry has long been characterized by fast production cycles and disposable consumption patterns, leading to significant environmental and social challenges. The intersection of circular fashion, consumer wellbeing, and skill-based therapeutic interventions presents a novel approach to sustainable fashion. This study explores how therapeutic repair workshops in circular fashion not only promote sustainability but also enhance consumer wellbeing and create additional value. By integrating the concepts of circular economy and mental health, this research offers insights into the multifaceted benefits of repairing skills within the fashion industry. The "Creative Denim Redesign and Repair Workshop Series" emerges as a response to the growing need for sustainable fashion practices. With a commitment to fostering conscious consumption, this initiative aims to empower individuals with practical skills that not only breathe new life into their wardrobes but also contribute to a more sustainable and mindful approach to style as well as enhancing their well-being and values.
