I will be taking part in Ireland’s Fashion Revolution Sustainable fashion show on April 27th in the D-Light Studios Dublin. I will also have a stand on the day where I will have some new Millinery designs with me.
Why am I taking part in the event? Well Fashion Revolution questions who made my clothes? I can answer that question not only did I make your millinery pieces but also I have made the fabric that goes into the pieces. Likewise for my dress design that feature in runway shows I have also made them. I pride myself in not wasting any of my handmade fabric’s, any cut off are worked back into my designs.
This is an event not worth missing, tickets are €10 and there will be guest speaking about sustainable fashion on the night also.
HEre are some commonly asked questions about Fashion REVOLUTION
What is fashion Revolution?
Fashion Revolution is a global movement that works towards a more sustainable fashion industry that values people, environment, profit and creativity in equal measure.

What is fashion Revolution week?
Fashion Revolution Week is our #whomademyclothes campaign in April, which happens at the time of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, where 1,138 people were killed and many more injured on 24th April 2013.
We use this week to encourage millions of people to ask brands ‘Who made my clothes’ and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain.
Fashion Revolution Ireland – ABOUT
Fashion Revolution Ireland started in 2015 under Re-dress organised by Rosie O’Reilly, Erin McCLure & Kate Nolan. Re-dress executed plenty of campaigns, events and educational programmes including their internationally showcased paste up campaign in association with MArk Fitz Art, their Better Fashion Schools Workshops in association with WWGS, their better fashion tool kits andposter campaigns which brought together some of Ireland’s leading creatives to tell the real stories of our clothes and many more.
This firmly established Fashion Revolution in Ireland and now it’s grown to involve hundreds of volunteers across the country. Over the past five years, Fashion Revolution Ireland organised plenty of events such as clothes swap parties, talks, films screenings, guerilla campaigns, and many other events all over Ireland. We grew bigger every year and our 2018 campaign was joined by local makers, shakers and influencers such as Chupi Sweetman, Irene O’Brien or the whole Image Magazine Ireland team, who shared their #lovestories with us. We got covered by local newspapers & magazines such as Irish times, Image magazine, Irish Examinerand Totally Dublin. We were joined by plenty of local brands, designer, makers, teachers, students, artists, conscious fashion lovers and the number of our events and volunteers and grows significantly every year.
And we are hoping to get even bigger, stronger and louder this year!!!
