Het Nutshuis is seizing the opportunity of Residence de la Mode to dedicate an evening to morally committed designers, intelligent textiles and the ethical awareness of consumers and the fashion industry.
Just a few months ago, it was world headlines: sweat shops in Bangladesh were exposing textile workers to mortal danger. Major fashion chains were falling over themselves to distance their operations from the mala fide practices of textile factory owners. But the truth is that much of our cheap clothing comes from these factories. It is gradually dawning on consumers, fashion chains and designers that things need to change. From intelligent textiles to safe production, and from green to ethical fashion in Het Nutshuis on 7 November.
Slow Fashion is an event that features catwalk shows by 4 designers, a talk show, speed dates and a film programme. Everything revolves around the theme ‘honest and sustainable fashion’. Engagé designers will show their designs, and experts will discuss the advent of the ethical fashion industry. There will also be a special preview of the photo project 'What we wear' by Pieter van den Boogert.
Shows: 1st show at 20.30 hrs / 2nd show at 22.30 hrs.
