See You At Ethical Brands for a Fashion Revolution
FashionCapital’s in-house label ‘Belles of London’ will present at the UK’s leading independent ethical fashion showcase ‘Ethical Brands for a Fashion Revolution’ at London’s Brand Museum on Saturday 27th April. The core message behind the event is that viable and ethical fashion, such as the Belles of London, is out there, beautifully made and ready to buy. The event will bring together amazing ethical brands, gorgeous fashion and inspiring speakers, including our very own CEO Jenny Holloway, 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.
The participating brands are:
Belles of London
Deakin and Blue
Fabric for Freedom
Gold is a Neutral
House of Sankofa Collections
Ted and Bessie

Ethical Brands for a Fashion Revolution is a not-for-profit event organised by volunteers to support the Fashion Revolution campaign and give a platform to independent ethical and sustainable brands. Last year the event had over 500 people register to attend, with around 250 attending on the day. This year there will be a small entry fee to encourage people to come along and to help support the running costs of the event so that we can continue to provide an accessible platform for independent, ethical businesses. For the cost of a Fairtrade cup of coffee (£3.73), you can come and enjoy a day of celebration, education and support the Fashion Revolution message! Kids go free with full paying adults.
