This week has seen the Brown Sugar Better Fashion Week in Ireland. This is a sustainable fashion initiative from Re-Dress – a non-profit group that works to promote more ethical practices within the Irish fashion industry. Better Fashion Week has been running since 2008 and serves to bring ethical fashion to the attention of the public and the industry. This year there have been talks, pop-up boutiques, exhibitions, workshops and conferences taking place throughout the week.
Re-Dress’s aim is to make sustainable fashion accessible, stylish and sexy. As well as organising Better Fashion Week they also run the Clean Clothes Campaign (supporting workers in the sweatshop industries) and the Made in Ireland Campaign.
