The 19th of February 2018 will remain a memorable date. We had the pleasure of being part of a valuable initiative in pairing fashion with ethics and sustainability.
Our Schläppi 2200 biodegradable mannequins provided the backdrop to the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange exhibition at Buckingham Palace celebrating the skills and craftsmanship of artisans around the Commonwealth. For the first time, The Commonwealth has come together to showcase a wealth of design and artisan fashion talent across the 53 Commonwealth countries and brought to life the values of a modern-day community: empowerment of women, ethical treatment of workers in production and supply chains, innovation, economic growth and a reduction in poverty.
Hosted on behalf of the Queen, The Commonwealth Fashion Exchange was attended by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and HRH The Countess of Wessex.
A special thanks to Eco-Age for having us part of this amazing journey through ethical fashion.
