Ethical Brands for Fashion Revolution 2019

Ethical Brands for Fashion Revolution 2019

The UK’s leading annual independent ethical fashion showcase is back!

On Saturday 27th April, independent ethical clothing brands from around the UK will come together at London’s Brand Museum to support the Fashion Revolution message and show consumers that there is a viable, ethical alternative to high street, fast fashion brands.

Building on the success of last year’s ethical fashion showcase, Ethical Brands For Fashion Revolution is back for 2019!

Bringing together amazing ethical brands, beautiful fashion and inspiring speakers to encourage you to #BeTheChange and wear your values.

Fashion Revolution marks the anniversary of the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh and has become a global movement campaigning for systematic change in the fashion industry and greater supply chain transparency.

We will have a showcase throughout the day where you will be able to discover, browse and buy from a full range of independent ethical fashion brands – including clothing, footwear, accessories and jewellery.

There will be plenty of ethical fashion discussions, shopping opportunities, as well as expert panels and Q&A sessions throughout the day.

Join us at this event to discover beautiful new brands, vote with your wallet and help us change the face of the fashion industry for the better!

You can book your ticket here for less than the price of a Fairtrade coffee!
