Unshackled is our advocacy group that raises awareness against human trafficking and child labour.
The show highlights exploitation of workers in the fashion industry, the supply chain and promotes good choices regarding clothing and fashion. Fair Trade and ethical labels will be discussed and selected items from a few local manufacturers will be modeled.
Various stands will be in the room supporting ethical trading.
Some clothing will be for sale plus a swap shop to promote the idea of recycling and the connection between the fashion cycle and our choices. All dresses, jackets, pants and tops are $5. Doors open at 6.30pm.
The event is ticketed – $20 for adults and $15 for concession – for food, show bag and fashion show.
