Fair Trade fashion will shake its fair trade tush on the catwalk at Plymouth Student Unions’ Fairtrade Fashion Show on Tuesday, February 24, from 7pm. (From The People’s Republic of South Devon)
Stephen Tabois, student Chair of Taste for Life Society, told the People’s Republic of South Devon: “The fashion show is organised by students to highlight and promote the purchase of fairly traded and ethically sourced materials and goods, and to make you think about where your clothes come from. It is also about having a good time!”
Claire Massey, volunteer manager at the Students’ Union, told the PRSD: “The fashion show at the Students’ Union is open to everyone, not just students, and we have a wide range of companies showcasing their clothing including Surfers Against Sewage, The Tea Appreciation Society, Rapanui, Millets, Oxfam, Applied Clothing and Pants to Poverty.
“We have volunteer models of all ages, staff, students, and representatives from community groups who we work closely with in the SU.”
The show starts at 7pm and tickets cost and £3 or £2 for students and concessions, with a donation from every sale going towards Oxfam’s current disaster relief efforts.
Tickets include a free glass of Fair Trade wine or fruit juice, and there are stalls to browse and free chocolate to taste.
You can get tickets on the night or by emailing [email protected] or by ringing Claire on 01752 588362.
