I am still buzzing from last Sunday where Siam Colvine, Hope Miller and I spent the day at Graduate Fashion Week at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, London. GFW is a showcase of the work of hundreds of fashion graduates from all over the UK, from womenswear and menswear to communication and marketing, with a vast exhibition space fille with portfolios, sketchbooks, samples and CVs on display for the industry to browse through, and a packed schedule of runway shows, career support, presentations, performances, awards, workshops and live talks.

Fashion Revolution Edinburgh with Colour Elements

I support Fashion Revolution because despite numerous disasters that exemplify the state of the fashion industry, change is still far too slow and we can only make progress with a united movement. Its brilliant to see the project gain momentum here in Scotland as well as worldwide. I think Edinburgh is the perfect place for a Fashion Revolution event because we have a thriving creative community that really cares about ethics. The fashion industry here is growing and as it grows, each step of the way we need to consider sustainability as the number one priority.
