Described as a Fashion Show, this is in fact far more than that. In addition to the catwalk contributors presenting clothes that have been sustainably-sourced, made from natural fabrics, or are recycled, there will be stalls displaying all things ‘green’ – ethically-produced clothing, cruelty-free cosmetics, natural gifts, organic food and more. Needless to say, there will also be a raffle and light refreshments.
There will be two shows, one from 3 – 5 p.m. and another from 7 – 9 p.m. and the stalls will be open between the two. It is hoped that attendees will wear green, even if only green hearts, to reflect the theme.
As we become more aware of how we are damaging our planet, we all want to ‘do our bit’ to prevent this, so this event is to be recommended.
The show will include ‘before and after’ photos of members’ upcycled garments and the one judged best will receive a small prize. So have a rummage in your wardrobe and get inspired to give a new lease of life to a garment that you no longer wear. (There are ideas galore online – just type-in ‘upcycling’). Don’t forget to take a photo of the original item of clothing before you start altering it and, preferably, show the upcycled article being worn. (This can be for a woman, man or child.) Please contact Moira Hammond on 01473 659482 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to offer a contribution.
