Ethical Fashion Day at the V&A

Sunday 9 November 2008

Bring your chic but unloved fashion items to swap with ones you will love at our Swishing event. Stylists will help you discover your best look and cut and sew reinvention workshops can help you put life back into your clothes. Chaired by fashion writer and broadcaster Caryn Franklin, experts including Katharine E Hamnett and Lucy Siegle debate the future for sustainable fashion. Watch our glamorous eco fashion show presented by Orsola de Castro. Join the style surgery seminars to find out whats eco hot on the high street or how to restyle your wardrobe. A day dedicated to your fashion choices and the principles and practicalities of ethical fashion. New V&A Trustee Erin O'Connor will attend the event to support the new Sackler Centre for arts education.
