2024 Episode 7: Evan Prichard

Can second-hand clothing markets support a circular economy and how can we facilitate consumers clothing demands whilst being environmentally conscious?

This episode features a conversation with Evan Prichard, a final year undergraduate student on the BA (Hons) Graphic Communication course at Cardiff School of Art & Design, about their final year research which investigates the trade of second-hand clothing across different continental markets and how businesses can utilise these specific markets to promote a circular economy. Evan discusses his own experiences as an entrepreneur in the realm of second-hand clothing and how his Creative Enterprise Research Proposal has benefitted him moving forward.

In conversation with Evan Prichard are David Wrenne and Sarah Smith
