Sew It Forward meets Designer Jumble for Fashion Revolution Day, 24th April

We are thrilled to be working with Designer Jumble at Westfield in Stratford for Fashion Revolution Day on Thursday 24th April. We'd love you to join us...

Guilt Free Fashion at Designer Jumble

Designer Jumble, the London-based 'pop-up shop with a conscience', is hosting a series of amazing activities to mark Fashion Revolution Day, the first anniversary of the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory, to 'show shoppers how to continue to enjoy fashion in a humane way.'

If that isn't enough, you can also come see a celebrity gallery of photos by Trevor Leighton and styled by Alice Wilby, each wearing their clothes for Fashion Revolution Day, including Mary Portas & Melanie Rickey, LibertyLondonGirl, Caryn Franklin, Livia Firth and Bianca Jagger.

On the day Designer Jumble will also unveil a collection of 1000 designer pieces from the wardrobe of Hannalore Smart, widow of Circus King Billy Smart Jr, who has collected iconic items by Westwood, Alaia, YSL, Chanel, Dior and more from the last three decades, including a rare Issey Miyake moulded corset, considered one of his most iconic designs. Not to be missed!

Events will run between 10am-6pm, entry and attendance is free. Closed from 6pm for a private event.

Location:
Designer Jumble, 120 The Street, Westfield Stratford City, Montifichet Road, Olympic Park, London E20 1EJ
