Setting up the Clothes Show on Thursday morning was great to see the space of the Earls Court 2 venue empty and a shell hosting an army of people setting up their stalls, stages and stands for the weekend.
Things started to come together as the clothes entered the venue, signs went up and the people arrived on Friday morning!
The Ethical Fashion Forum stand at the Clothes Show 2010 was profiling the work of great designers such as Junky Styling, Pachacutie and Mia. The Dress Doctor, Jo Pullen, was also exhibiting her designs and the work she does, reinventing and bringing wardrobes of clothes that are no longer loved or worn back to life.
Above is the EJF stand within the Carnaby Street Area of the show. Below is Una and myself dressing the EFF display.
