Not all purchasers of fashion understand the impacts of what they choose to buy. Brighton Fashion Week will tell the story of waste people create from their fast fashion shopping fix contrasting this with sustainable fashion practices and the need for fair wages. We have started to increase consumer awareness around the social and environmental impact of clothing through our events, social media and press coverage over the past two years and wish this to increase further. We now have decided to bring criteria around sustainability in fashion into ALL aspects of the event (the three main catwalk shows) as we feel this is an essential step that the fashion industry needs to take.
Brighton Fashion Week is produced by FAQPOP, a not for profit Community Interest Company committed to producing high quality public events in fashion and the arts. We have twelve years experience in programming, production and promotion. Brighton Fashion Week has seen the success of many of its past designers and been an unequivocal catalyst in this. Brighton Fashion Week has created opportunities that have catapulted the careers of many designers and we are now extending that opportunity to you.
