Sustainable Fashion Show
The first in a series of events dedicated to promoting and fostering sustainability in the cultural sector, Native Event’s Sustainable Fashion Show is being held Saturday, April 27th in the charming surrounds of D-Light Studios, Dublin. The event, held as part of Fashion Revolution Week, will consist of a marketplace, panel discussions and a runway show.
Over twenty exhibitors will take part in the market and fashion show; each showcasing their sustainable, recycled, and upcycled designs. On top of that, a carefully selected number of fashion students from around the country will be showcasing their designs on the runway:
Aisling Duffy / Attention Attire / Celtic Fusion / Due South / Fresh Cuts / Grown / Jump the Hedges / Liadain Aiken / Little Scrap / Loved & Upcycled / OM Organic Movement / Orla Langan / ReTale Vintage / Saraden Designs / The African Shirt Company / The Simon Community / VIVID Love for Life / & More.
The Sustainable Fashion Show will be preceded by panel discussions chaired by Swapsies founder Clodagh Kelly and Katie Harrington; hosts of upcoming podcast Climate Queens. Panel topics include “Is Green The New Black?” and “The Future Of Fashion: How Do We Successfully Transition To A Circular Economy?”. The evening’s panellists are fashion and sustainability industry leaders such as Carrie Ann Moran of Fashion Revolution Ireland and the Rediscovery Centre, Siofra Caherty of Jump The Hedges, and Megan Best of Attention Attire and Body&Soul with more to be announced soon.
Located in the heart of Dublin 1, just a minute walk from the historical Five Lamps area, D-Light Studios is a creative, multi-functional space housed in a converted warehouse.
MC for the fashion show is comedian Rebecca Keane and music is being provided by much celebrated Berlin-based DJ Neil Flynn.
