Cathedral to offer awesome backdrop for cutting-edge ethical designs
Chester-based fair trade fashion company WOMbat Clothing will have a range of its exciting and innovative adventure clothing modelled at a prestigious fashion show next month.
Fairwear Fashion Show 2010 takes place on Thursday February 25 in the awesome surroundings of Bristol Cathedral, and promises to be a star-studded occasion.
Hollyoaks and Casualty actor James Redmond will compere the event, which is made possible by a strong partnership between many different agencies and supporters, including manufacturers and suppliers.
There will also be an exclusive video link into the event starring top comedian Harry Hill.
All exhibitors are members of the World Free Trade Organisation, or use Fair Trade certified cotton.
Freya Pearson, fashion show co-ordinator said: “Fair trade fashion is ethical and fun and the show offers a perfect opportunity to move people away from fast, disposable fashion to more sustainable options.
“Last year’s shows attracted 450 people, and this time, with the awesome backdrop of Bristol Cathedral and London staging experts creating the set, all the ingredients are in place for a fantastic event.”
Victoria Tingey of WOMbat said: “We’re really excited to have been chosen to display our clothing at the Fairwear Fashion Show, which will show the audience that fair trade fashion can be fun, funky and right on-trend.”
There will be two shows on the day, at 4pm and 7pm. Tickets for the show are on sale now, and are selling out steadily. They are priced £8 (£5 concessions) for the early show, and £10 (£7 concessions) for the 7pm event.
