London, UK


Yesterday night I was invited to the Calico 'Keep It Fair In What You Wear' event in London. The event was held at the Leggera Nell'Aria Boutique and promoted Fair Trade and ethical fashion. Most of the brands were British and their products were made here too, therefore supporting our economy and workers.

Being my first blogger event I was quite nervous but everyone was really friendly and after talking to a few designers I got stuck in snapping away at the items on show. Each brand had its own space to show off its gorgeous products and there were several live models wearing some fantastic pieces.

 GirlWithBeads uses recycled materials to make clothing and bags. Some of their items were amazing, and I was told that no two pieces were ever the same.

One brand that really stood out to me was Grace, and not just because that's my name. The peter pan collar detail on some of their tops was beautiful, and I was lucky enough to receive one of my own in a goody bag. I was told by Jane Huppard the designer that she works with the same company who made the lace for Kate Middleton's wedding dress. For 25% off Grace clothing you can use the discount code GRACEMAY14.

All of the brands produce fantastic good quality items and promote good causes such as fair trade and recycling. 

I'm so glad Calico invited me and introduced me to some amazing brands, and I just wanted to thank everyone there for putting on a lovely evening. I really enjoyed attending my first ever blog event and I cannot wait to go to more!
