I have teamed up with Better Fashion Week, being held in Dublin from April 23rd to 30th. This great initiative will highlight the issue of sustainable fashion through a series of pop-up shops, exhibitions, installations, events and industry talks with fashion heavy weights like Artist/Designer Helen Steele, and ethical fashion writers Lucy Seigle and Dr. Kate Fletcher taking part.
Dublin city-centre will see some of the most creative minds in the Irish industry join forces with top international fashion talent to give us a once off and unique insight into the artistry of cutting-edge fashion and No. 6 Castle Market Street will host a selection of Irish designers giving ethical Irish fashionistas the chance to pick up a range of beautiful Irish designs & fashion all under one roof.
Brown Sugar Better Fashion Week will kick off with a month long pop-up shop in No. 6 Castle Market St featuring well known designers and retailers such as; Emma Manley, Sinead Doyle, Lisa Shawgi, Red Dog (Shop) and The Irish Design Shop.
