The 24th of April was Fashion Revolution day – established to mark the one year lapse since the tragic collapse of a clothing factory in Bangladesh. The campaign suggested supporters wear their clothes inside #insideout to promote knowing the supply chains of your clothing. Did you join in and show off your label? I wore a top from The Fara Workshop to honour the day – it’s a charity shop in Angel where all the clothes are made in store from donated materials and everything is to die for! Check out their online store here if you’re not based in London.
There were amazing events arranged all day including a flash mob catwalk in Carnaby Street, a selection of talks and seminars from some industry experts, and a popup shop in Westfield’s. Stars turned out in force to support including Susie Bubble and Livia Firth.
I managed to make it up to London for the Fashion Revolution after party where they had collections from some fabulous ethical designers. The years of scratchy hemp are long gone! Designers featured in at London Ethnic’s Fashion Revolution Day event were: Carlotta Actis Baron, Stephen Garvey, Rochelle Loren (my fav!), Emma Price, Kirin Atwal, Zehra Nas, and Valerie Goode
Here’s a few of my snaps from the night….
Wow the Fara workshop is a fantastic idea. Gorgeous top too!
Yeah it’s a must visit next time you’re in London!
