Green is the new black
Two weeks ago I was very kindly invited to be a judge at a show during Bristol Fashion week at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway. The show is being hosted by St Vincents. St Vincents are part of Julian House; a non profit organisation who provide housing projects to adults in recovery from substance abuse. They have put together a fashion event called 'Green is the new Black' showcasing 20 young people from Bristol and South Gloucestershire's designs they have created using only upcycled materials.
I am incredibly excited to be involved in this event, Fashion and creativity are so important to me so I am really looking forward to seeing what kind pieces have been created by new young designers, and how only being allowed to use reused textiles has influenced their designs!
For me the panic has now set in as to what I am going to wear and what jewellery I am going to design! I have narrowed the outfits down to the two outfits above, I am feeling the monochrome at the moment. I was set on a gilet, however I was unable to find *any* plus size stores doing a long black or white furry one, I found this Ostrich stole, which is probably better than a gilet with the shirt and disco pants. The cage dress is one of those things I have seen lots of other blogger wear, and as I normally only go for body con I dismissed it a bit, but I think it will look good with the suspender tights and spice girl esque plimsole heels.
"Green is the new black" will be held on 28th March at 5pm in the Fashion Pavilion, which is outside The Mall, Cribbs Causeway. Tickets are free, but St Vincents are asking for a minimum donation of £2.00 on the night to attend. For your free tickets please email firstname.lastname@example.org More details can be found here.
