The RE:Fashion Awards took place on the 13th November 2008, celebrating people and organisations who have taken great strides in tackling poverty, healing the environment and changing consumer attitudes towards ethical fashion.
Amongst the contributors were Daisy Lowe, Sam Roddick, Vivienne Westwood, Zandra Rhodes, Katharine Hamnett, Pixie Geldof, Leah Weller and a stellar line up of stars. The glittering event, presented by Louise Roe, saw major faces from the fashion world come together to recognise the most significant developments in social and environmental standards in the fashion industry within a decade.
Industry Calls for Tax Breaks for Eco Fashion Businesses
Following the success of the RE:Fashion Awards, The RE:Fashion Summit was held in London on Monday 26th April, 2010.
One of the key actions to come out of the day was a call from industry for tax breaks on sustainable clothing. The campaign, spearheaded by Harold Tillman, Chairman of the British Fashion Council, will incentivise fashion businesses to work in a more sustainable way and to make eco fashion more affordable and accessible to consumers.
The campaign, supported by Monsoon, Vivienne Westwood, Edun, George at ASDA, From Somewhere and London College of Fashion's Centre for Sustainable Fashion, calls on all parties to recognise that to effect change, sustainability and ethical fashion also needs to make commercial sense.
RE:Fashion. Style without compromise.
