Cock & Bull Menswear have confirmed that they will take part in an ethical fashion show organised by students of the London School of Fashion next Wednesday 8 May, 2013 at 7pm. The event, which includes a show, a question and answer panel and a silent auction is being held in aid of the Rehema project.
The London menswear line will join a number of other brands sending models down the catwalk in a collection of sustainable fashion. These include People Tree, Komodo, Junky Styling, Arthur & Henry and Braintree. A star-studded panel of speakers will also be present at the event, with Caroline Nodder (editor in chief of Drapers), Tamsin Lejeune (director of ethical fashion forum), Maggie Jones (shadow minister for culture, media and sport), Sandy Black (author of ‘The Sustainable Fashion Handbook’), Liz Parker (Labour behind the label) and Mark Bloom (managing director of Komodo) all confirmed.
Cock & Bull Director P. D. Scott said, “We were delighted to be asked to take part in next week’s ethical fashion show by the London College of Fashion students. It is a subject that is very close to our heart and something we are passionate about. The Rehema project is a wonderful cause that we’re honoured to be able to contribute to.”
Bringing together a range of brands and fashion insiders from the capital, the evening will take place at St Paul’s in Hammersmith, conveniently located next to the Tube line. Cock & Bull will be dressing a number of models, with those strutting down the catwalk set to sport a range of pieces from the current collections. Pieces to look out for include a jaunty tweed flat cap and organic cotton tees.
100% of proceeds from the show will go to the Rehema Project, an initiative which helps women living in extremely difficult situations in Tanzania to learn textile skills to support their families. The project includes jewellery and clothes making and runs a café in the compound of the Anglican Diocese. Money raised from the Rehema outreach goes to the local community, ensures basic food is provided to children and supports women. The organizers of the ethical fashion show hope to raise £4000 from the evening to finance a house that Rehema women can work in together, safely.
Tickets for the ethical fashion show are available on the door and cost £10 or £7 for students and include a free drink. To find out more view the Facebook page. Additional donations to the charity can be made at:
