On Thursday 24th April 2014, London Ethnic – in partnership with the Fashion Revolution Organisation – hosted one of the official events for globally-participated Fashion Revolution Day, which annually marks the anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster where 1133 people who tragically lost their lives (and a further 2500 injured) when a garment factory collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh in 2013. Here at London Ethnic, we firmly believe it’s time we take a stand against mistreatment, which often leads to such catastrophes, which is why we strive to promote healthy, positive and equal treatment in our industry.
Our company is born from the desire to give fashionistas around the world the opportunity to acquire authentic London fashion by British fashion artisans – with one simple ethos – equality in the garment-making industry. As part of both the Made in Britain Organisation and the Fashion Association of Britain, we strive to promote not only a healthy relationship between creators and consumers, but also a justifiable and fair attitude towards the treatment of fashion workers around the globe.
London Ethnic would like to thank all of the participants of the evening for getting involved, and for making it a wonderful and interesting event throughout. A huge thank you goes out to the Designers of the evening; Carlotta Actis Baron, Stephen Garvey, Rochelle Loren, Emma Price, Kirin Atwal, Zehra Nas, and Valerie Goode – whose collections were ideal, and really helped highlight the message that not only can your clothes be beautiful, but they can also be ethically-resourced. Thank you to the Hairstylists, Make-up artists, and models of the evening – as this event couldn’t have gone through without them, and who made it possible for all of the participants and guests to view the collections. Thank you also to Mandala Valley Wine, who provided us all with beverages as the evening progressed.
London Ethnic’s Fashion Revolution Day event 2014 took place at The Cuckoo Club in Central London which featured beautiful, high-end designs created by talented, up-and-coming British designers whose garments graced the cat walk. The event also featured insightful talks the London-based designers, and musical performances by great live bands. Overall, an eye-opening, fun and unforgettable experience for everybody involved.
“It’s a tragedy what happened in Bangladesh a year ago. People need to understand that there is an alternative. There are talented fashion designers and fashion workers in the UK and it’s really great that London Ethnic showcases them.” – Rochelle Loren, Designer.
“My jackets are made in my bedroom… Other pieces are made locally… Everything is made in the UK of course. I feel that the creativity of a designer comes in the pieces more, the close they are to production.” – Quote by Stephen Garvey, Designer.
“We empower women who have been the victims of human trafficking or domestic abuse and give them an alternative means of income and bring them back into society with the help of international charities. We have worked in places like Nepal and Africa. We are very pleased to be able to announce that we will be helping victims of human trafficking who have ended up in London with the London Ethnic BACA Jewellery collection which will be available this summer” – Kevin Ackerman, BACA Jewellery.
