Fashion With a Conscience: Kickstarter Pledge Party
Sat 8 April 2017, 19:30 – 22:30 BST
We have launched a Kickstarter campaign!! And really need your help to reach our target of £10,000.
Here at SUSS UK we're all about promoting a more sustainable world, and our campaign will help us create an EPIC concept-store throughout the month of September that will not only sell ethical and sustainable wares across fashion, beauty and homeware, but also host a number of exciting workshops and talks from the industry's top professionals.
Join us as we host a party alongside Dalston's hottest ethical hair salon Stunt Dolly - for a night of networking, drinks and music, where we will tell you all the details around the pop-up shop and hopefully inspire you to get involved with one of our pledge reward schemes.
Why this needs to happen: Sustainability is not a trend. It is a necessary step which the fashion industry must take for the future of our planet. At present, both the industry and the consumer are not moving quickly enough, but there are a growing number of brands who are paving the way with innovative solutions to material waste, supply chains, production and sourcing. We want to promote those brands. We want to help raise their profile through our events and media engagement, and we want you to help us do it.
Who should attend: any one that has the smallest interest in moving towards a more sustainable fashion industry is welcome with open arms. If you're looking to meet like-minded people, learn more about the issues surrounding the current model or want to get actively involved this is the place to be.
What to expect: we'll kick off with a viewing of our Kickstarter video and then give you a 10 minute insight into what our plans are for the concept store of dreams - the brands we already have on board as well as the exciting workshop series were lining up as we speak.
Our partners Stunt Dolly will then give you a little taster of the fantastic work they do in the salon, and why ethical hair styling is important for both the health of our hair and the planet. (Trust us we've sampled their skills and a trip to the salon is more like a spa day than the usual fodder.)
After exciting you with our plans we'll segue into a a live DJ set from the resident maestro and food and drink will set the backdrop to a rather stella party to take you into your saturday night with style.
When: Saturday 8th April.
Doors open at 7.30pm
Talk starts at 8.15pm
Doors close at 10.30pm
Where: Stunt Dolly salon, 582 Kingsland Road, Dalston - the place to be.
