I am delighted to announce that I’ll be hosting ‘Ethical Brands for Fashion Revolution 2020’ events on Saturday 25th April. I’ll be sharing virtual talks on sustainable style, interviewing members of the Ethical Brand Directory family and talking to ‘Sustainable Man’ AKA Dan Pontarlier and EBD’s business partner.
And if that wasn’t enough fashion-fun, Roberta Style Lee will also be hosting a virtual swap shop! Offering a sustainable way to upgrade your wardrobe from the comfort of your own home.
Each event is about showcasing ethical brands, sharing our beautiful #stylestories – we all have them! – and showing that #LovedClothesLast.
With the Fashion Revolution moving indoors and online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, attending Ethical Brands For Fashion Revolution is the perfect way to join the global movement. And with £1 from every ticket purchased going to the Fashion Revolution Fund, this is a fun way to get involved and give back.
