Ethical fashion launch party at EJF’s Pop Up Shop

14 November, 2012

Last Friday we were delighted to see so many great ethical brands and designers come together at EJF’s Pop Up shop JUST on London's Carnaby street for the launch of The Rodnik Band’s oceans-themed collection and Pure Thread’s ethical designer brands.

The evening was a great success. It was sponsored by Continental Clothing Company, an ethical designer and manufacturer whose basics T-shirts and jumpers can be found in store. Continental Clothing offers a wealth of knowledge and information about sourcing ethical cotton and has long partnered with EJF to encourage and assist entire supply chains to adopt environmentally sustainable and ethical production methods.

Philip Colbert – the designer for The Rodnik Band, a pop art-inspired fashion label famous for outlandish sequin dresses, bold handbags, and fun ready-to-wear clothing – unveiled his sea-inspired collection which aims to raise awareness and funds for EJF's Save the Sea Campaign.

The collection includes lobster prints, sailor dresses, yellow submarines and a unique Fish ‘n’ Chips dress which is on auction until the shop closes at the end of the year. Bidding starts at £300 and proceeds will be donated to EJF. You can join in this running auction by emailing lucy.bloxam@ejfoundation.org with your bid.
