Estethica: All Dressed Up

According to the Soil Association (and who are we to argue with that august body?) this month is Organic September. They're highlighting all kinds of initiatives to get us to think and consume in a more organic manner.

More importantly for the purposes of this here blog, they will be exhibiting for the first time at London Fashion Week. Estethica, the ethical exhibition running parallel to the main show will feature a Soil Association stand, co-designed by Telegraph style guru Tamsin Blanchard. They will be featuring brands like Continental Clothing, a Pier 32 favourite.

Estethica is a internationally recognised ethical designer showcase, leading the way in celebrating the best in responsible fashion. Over 20 brands will be exhibiting this year, all of which meet tough ethical criteria combined with design excellence.

Georgina Thomas, Certification textile specialist for the Soil Association notes:

“It is increasingly clear that it is possible to produce modern, fashionable textiles in a way that is kinder, cleaner and better for people and the planet. It is great to be representing sustainable organic fashion at such a prestigious event.”

Estethica starts this Friday 16th Spetember, at the Embankment Galleries at Somerset House on the Strand.
