Busy times!!

This is a quick update...as i'm off to 'The Wave' march in London to raise awareness of the Copenhagen summit, to show our government that we need to show how important the 2 degree change is!! More on that later!!

I WON!! I was so surprised, we all went to the Centre for Sustainable Fashion's 'Fashioning the Future' awards ceremony...which was held in City Hall!! I walked in just as Caryn Franklin was practicing her speech, which was a little surreal as I used to watch her on a sunday night with my little sister on "The Clothes Show"!! It was a great night and the film they had made was amazing! 

I was presented my award by Jo Woods (I think when I told my mum she was more excited that i'd seen Jo Woods than my award...heehee i'm joking!) and then had a nerve wracking time mumbling through a couple of interviews!!


There's quite a few good articles online about it (and of course you can read more about it on www.sustainable-fashion.com)








Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
