Ethical Fashion in the Age of Austerity

Come and visit us this Thursday at the V&A's Museum of Childhood- Ethical Fashion in the Age of Austerity event. The event is Free and it is a great way to meet London's most exciting Arts and Crafts projects.

We will be showing a selection of hand made gifts from our Pop-Up shop and showcasing some of the projects which have taken place in the space since its opening in November 2010.

Read more about the event below from the V&A's website.

In an age of austerity, can we justify the added expense of buying ethically? Or is Make Do and Mend set to be the next big trend? Join in an evening devoted to ethical fashion and sustainability as independent arts venue The Papered Parlour host an ethical mini-festival at the Museum.
Uncover hidden workshops, live music, performance, panel discussion and craft stalls set amongst the Museum's childhood collections. Celebrate the rise of 'slow fashion' as London's leading eco-journalists, green stylists and ethical campaigners come together to discuss the key issues surrounding this growing social movement.
Fashion designer and V&A Trustee Betty Jackson will be in attendance, alongside the Guardian's 'Ethical Living' columnist Lucy Siegle, who will be speaking about her forthcoming book 'To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing out the World?'. London's ultra-cool stylist Jocelyn Whipple will be running a unique workshop on green styling, plus eco-campaigners Labour Behind the Label and Love Fashion Hate Sweat Shops will be offering top tips on how to be sustainable with style. The Papered Parlour will also be running Make Do and Mend workshops with Piney Gir, and Young & Lost Club will be performing a live set.
