London Ethnic Event
This weekend Chi was at the London Ethnic event for ‘Fashion Revolution Day’ which was launched after the horrific Rana Plaza catastrophe in Dhaka, Bangladesh the 24 April 2013.The factory collapse led to 1133 victims dead and thousands more injured, casting a dark shadow over the history of fashion.
The event took place at the Lollipop Gallery in London on the 24th of April 2015 for the fashion workers who lost their lives that terrible day. London Ethnic event was there to raise money for their families and increase awareness of the human work exploitation in fashion. And also the importance of ethical & sustainable principles in the fashion industry.
The fashion presentation was run by a brand new designs from the London Ethnic House produced in collaboration with in-house designers Eleanor Johnson and Nuria Carvajal Garcia with designer Reece Walywn Curtis. The London Ethnic AW15 collection was inspired by the London Skyline and street colouring transformed into simplistic shapes in the hues of blue and grey.
Here are some nice pictures of the event!
