Pop up of the week - The future of Fashion Weekend
This partnership is the first in the line for The House of St Barnabas, which will highlight individuals and organisations that are striving to create a better world. In this case the partnership is with Orsola de Castro and Fashion Revolution, to celebrate a group of designers who respond to social issues, people and our planet.
You’ll be able to explore the challenges facing the fashion world, discuss the solutions, meet the innovators and learn about the actions you, yourself can take. On the Saturday there is also a craft salon hosted by Bethany Williams, where you can learn a new craft and discuss ideas and solutions for the fashion industry with a group of like-minded people.
“Fashion is losing its frivolous image and entering a phase where thoughts and principles are inextricably linked with the process of design and making. It is still opulent, but the new luxury is linked with the intricacies of everyday lives, with the glorious irregularities that come from human mistakes, with making, and the time it takes to make things that last. Gloss fades, reality is forever.” - Orsola de Castro
Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th at The House of St Barnabas, it’s free to enter, apart from the craft salon, which is £5.
