_________________________________________________

To mark Rana Plaza's factory collapse 6th anniversary, for the first time in the North-East, a group of independent fashion businesses with a conscience will come together for Fashion Revolution Week for the ‘Northern Sustainable Fashion Revolution’. Organised by Melanie Kyles and Uncaptive, the event will take place from 24th April to the 28th April in the heart of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

This Preview Evening is the launch of a 5-days programme where guests will have the opportunity to partake in hands-on activities, learn from local industry professionals and academics, and explore the future of fashion in a more conscious era. Featured activities will equip participants with life-long skills, connect the general public with industry members, and engage the audience in a progressive discussion unraveling industry myths whilst showcasing the accessibility of ethical fashion in 2019.

An inspiring non-ticketed installation will be open to the public from 25-27 April at Ampersand Inventions and B&D Studios from 10am to 4pm.
