FASH//OFF EFF June Social
The June Ethical Fashion Forum Social was held in collaboration with MA Fashion and the Environment at the new High Holborn headquarters of UAL.
The theme of the event was to raise awareness in a fun way and to communicate the values of sustainable fashion to the consumer.
We had sewing machines for customising, filming of Oxford Street shoppers and their thoughts about 'eco-fashion', a film about our work, exhibition of images from Green Fair and Lyla from Traid with their wonderful button sewing sessions. The quiz questions ended the evening and were tricky but made people think about the issues in a fun way.
We also met the girls from the MA Ethical Fashion girls from Epsom, who won tickets to the Clothes Show by creating the most popular FASH/OFF outfit.
