LFW events to go to

Oh shit. It's fashion week time again. I feel caught off guard. But I've had a look around and it seems most Ethical fashion events are spread out further than just the few official LFW dates.

Tomorrow you can catch a talk at Pure London. Safia Minney of People Tree will be there. I haven't seen/heard/met her before so I think that would be quite interesting (but guess who's got a 9-5 job now). Wednesday there's an Intelligent Futures event called 'Social Media and OpenData for CSR' presentation at the Google Campus.

During LFW itself there's of course the great Esthetica at the exhbition area where all the best ethical and sustainable designers showcase their newest collections. Hopefully they'll all gain loads of buyers and press coverage. Christopher Raeburn is the only designer in the official show programme. It's going to be exciting to see what he's come up with.

Phannatiq is one of the new exciting designers at Esthetica.

On Sunday and Monday Ecoluxe returns with a showcase of more than 20 responsible designers in the Kingsway Hall Hotel. There's a great variety of UK-based and International designer to look forward to. It will be a great opportunity to meet the creators behind the labels and meet others interested in a sustainable fashion future.
One last event not to forget is Wonder-lust. A new concept by e-tailer Fashion ComPassion that allows you to buy limited edition products made from socially responsible and sustainable sources. The evening will be a fabulous mix of fashion, art and vodka made on fairtrade quinoa. How much more do we need looking forward to? I am definitely excited about being back in London.
