After having to postpone the event due to the snow that blanketed Edinburgh in February, the Sustainable Fashion Show took place on 11 March 2018 in the West Court at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA). The Show, which was organised by students Immy McAndrew (Architecture), Daniela Groza (Jewellery) and Milda Lebedyte (Chemistry) attracted over 150 attendees.
The team were aiming to highlight the need for fashion to transition into becoming a more environmentally-friendly industry. Edinburgh-based sustainable brands joined 11 recent ECA Fashion graduates to form the 20 exhibitors who showcased their work on the runway. One such brand was local innovators Hemp Eyewear, who make 100% vegan and recyclable frames, with each frame composed of unique natural plant fibre pattern, making every pair one of a kind.
