Fairtrade fashion to hit catwalk in Kidderminster
7:30am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
ETHICAL fashion is hitting the catwalk at the Academy at Kidderminster in a bid to raise the profile of Fairtrade clothing.
A selection of the autumn collection from Nomads Fairtrade Clothing will be modelled at the show on Friday October 18.
The company uses traditional Indian skills, organic cotton and UK design to make its ethical range for work or the weekend, with delicate details of hand printing and embroidery.
The Fairtrade seal of approval ensures the people making the garments are paid a fair wage and work in safe conditions.
The show is being organised by Kidderminster’s Fairtrade Group and chairman Sue Cowen said she was “very excited” about the chance to bring Nomads’ funky and individual style to the town.
She said: “The clothing covers different tastes – from hippy chic to gothic and beautiful partywear and can be worn as separates or layered.
“Part of the growing interest in ethical fashion, Nomads seeks to combine Indian craft with UK design and aims to maximise benefits to people and communities while minimise impact on the environment.”
The doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start and tickets are priced £6 or £5 if bought in advance from John Beard Tools and Ironmongery, in Bridge Street, or from Alison Burton at email@example.com, Mrs Cowen 01562 755552 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Tickets include a £2 discount off clothing purchases of more than £10.
