15-02-2005 12:57

The second day of conscious fashion week looked at the environmental impact of the clothing industry, be it from the use of chemicals in production, growing, and the waste inherent in the fashion industry.

Those who have attended other events at the rampART will know that the hall can change quite a bit but the make over for monday was quite a shock with the hall almost devided in half with a packing case cat walk, an industrial sewing machine as an info-table covered in leaflets from No Sweat and the like and a models changing room.

Conscious fashion - report from sunday

15-02-2005 12:30

Lots of squatting stories in the news and it's not all bad. positive stories from the independent and in Camden New Journal and Ham and High recently... though a big boo to the wankers at the Twickenham and Richmond newspaper for their continued biased scare stories e.g. Fears people may use empty building. Norwich Evening News also seem to have developed an obsession.
