London Fashion Week...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, March 5, 2010
I helped the Environmental Justice Foundation (check out their website its amazing!) at London Fashion Week...selling t-shirts and giving people a little information about the charity and what they are trying to achieve, it was a great experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it!!

Christopher Raeburn displayed some of his lovely work hung beautifully from the ceiling, it was part of his new collection featuring fabrics that used to be old military parachutes...they looked beautiful...

On Tuesday and Wednesday the Fashioning an Ethical Industry team held their annual conference at Rich was a brilliant two days with amazing speakers, amazing workshops and a lovely lunch!!

Now the time has come to bury myself in more knitting and hopefully have a finished garment by the end of Sunday...wish me luck!!


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.
