Join The Good Wardrobe at Bristol Energy Hub for this networking event which marks the start of Fashion Revolution Week 2017. Come along for drinks, conversation, inspiring short films and a mingle with designers, makers, creatives and other people who are interested in finding out how they can support a more ethical fashion industry locally and globally.
We’ll be encouraging guests to support Fashion Revolution by taking photos on the evening and asking brands on social media #whomademyclothes. Plus we want to celebrate the clothes we already own so wear a cherished garment and be ready to tell us your #lovestory! We’re very happy to be supported by Pukka Herbs who are providing their ethically produced ‘Love’ tea for guests to take home.
On 24th April, millions of people around the world will mark the fourth anniversary of the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse when 1138 people were killed near Dhaka, Bangladesh. In April 2014 Fashion Revolution Day was founded to ‘demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain’ and to remember those who have been injured or have lost their lives making clothes for our high street stores. This year Fashion Revolution Week takes place from 24th to 30th April and is an opportunity for us all to ask questions about who makes our clothes.
The event is being held at the Bristol Energy Hub. Bristol Energy will reinvest its profits back into local communities, so you can make a sustainable choice for your gas and electricity too. It offers a 100% renewable tariff, so you can go green and give back to your city.
This is one of a series of events taking place at Bristol Energy Hub during Fashion Revolution Week in collaboration with Kecks Clothing, Antiform and Emmaus, and supported by Pukka Herbs.
