Later this month, we’ll be joining forces with The Hoxton, Holborn, to bring you a Conscious Shopping evening as part of Fashion Revolution week (23rd – 27th April).
This unique shopping event is part of the Hox How To: Shop Consciously (& Reduce your Fashion Footprint). A night of panels and debate exploring what we can do to give the longest life to the pieces we love most, which brands we can trust are doing good, and how to build a fashion brand the ethical way.
So come on down to shop our curated edit of seasonal styles and accessories, alongside fellow brands People Tree, Reve En Vert, and Birdsong London.
We’ll also be on hand to talk sustainability and transparency, helping you to get clued up on how to shop more consciously, whether that’s more ethically or more environmentally aware, so you can lower your fashion footprint. Additional panel discussion will include:
#WhoMadeMyClothes: Fashion Revolution’s Co-Founder Orsola de Castro will be in conversation with Jemma Finch and Ella Grace Denton of sustainability collective Stories Behind Things, as moderated by Kat Poole, Editor of Emerald Street.
Breaking the Fast Fashion Habit: Catarina Midby, Sustainability Manager for H&M in conversation with Professor Becky Earley (UAL,Sustainable Textiles and Material Innovation, and judge of the H&M Global Change Award) and Han Ates, Founder of east London selvedge and raw denim brand Blackhorse Lane Ateliers.
How To Build an Ethical Fashion Brand with Mother of Pearl: a conversation with Amy Powney on what it takes to build a fashion empire the ethical way.
Registration to the pop-up is free, so book your interest here. Panel discussions are individually ticketed.
