BrightonFashionWeek LogoBrighton Fashion Week is taking over Brighton between 15th – 17th October.

 

 

 

Brighton Fashion Week was started by Liz Bishop who saw a need for growing designers to have an outlet. With a small, yet spirited, group of alternative designers seeking opportunities to design sustainable fashion, Brighton Fashion Week was born. It became a place for emerging designers to showcase their work, to open up their passions and thrive in their creativity. Over the years it has been growing and flourishing into a very prominent fashion show. I enjoy the creative impact these designers bring to the fashion world and I’m always on the lookout for the newest style and emerging talent that should be shared with my fellow readers.

Using the sustainability aspect brings the Brighton Fashion Week a real meaning for the fashion it conveys. So what is Sustainable fashion? It’s part of the larger trend of sustainable design where a product is created and produced with consideration to the environmental and social impact it may have throughout its total life span, including things like its carbon footprint. Fashion designers are now re-introducing eco-conscious methods at the source through the use of environmentally friendly materials and socially responsible methods of production.

I really enjoy when fashion has a purpose and as sustainability is becoming a hotter trend, so are its newest designs.

For the first time since its launch in 2009, Brighton Fashion Week will be completely sustainable. All of the show’s participating designers are using ethical practices in their production process and will be asked to make a pledge towards sustainability. This year’s catwalks and workshops have been designed with the involvement of leading organisations working to create a more ethical, affordable and creative fashion industry. Participating organisations include Fashion Revolution, Love Your Clothes (bought to you by WRAP, which leads the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan, Ethical Fashion Forum and Novel Beings, the artist agency exclusively representing conscious creatives in fashion, beauty, advertising & music.

Liz Bishop, founder and director of Brighton Fashion Week, said:

“In the six years since its inception, Brighton Fashion Week has become an international fashion and art platform and 2015 is looking to be our most exciting year yet. Making our events sustainable is a challenge that reflects our reputation for shaking-up the fashion mainstream”.

Brighton Fashion Week looks to the future of conscious fashion and beauty. Lets get excited and make a difference together.
