2012 Good Fashion Show Predicts our summer style favourite: Colin Leslie
Back in February 2012 Antithesis attended the very first Good Fashion Show , which took place in the impressive surroundings of London House, Bloomsbury. Founded by Antoinette Saxer, the ethical and not-for-profit event coincided with London Fashion Week and was open to press, trade and public. Being hailed a ‘must-visit destination for fashion’s insiders and outsiders’ we were eager to see what the showcasing brands had to offer the ever growing ethical fashion market.
The event encompasses a shopping emporium showcasing the work of more than 45 eco-ethical designers, a fairtrade food market, a makeover station and an exhibition of artwork ranging from fashion photography and illustration to fine art and video installations. As if that wasn’t enough the highlights of the event were a series of fascinating talks on fashion’s ethics as well as an evening runway show. We think the Good Fashion Show was an impressive platform for UK ethical fashion scene and is rightly here to stay!
Antithesis is always on the look out for well designed ethical fashion products we can support, and it was at this years’ Good Fashion Show that we came across Colin Leslie, his signature bamboo sunglasses are an absolute ‘must have’ for this summer. His best sellers the Eco Unit.T wide-eyed sunnies, as worn by the Loveable Rogues on BGT are currently on sale! (with an additional 20% discount for all those who entre the magic code 2012FF).
Colin Leslie styles follow the classic Aviator and wide eye Wayfarer shapes so popular with the urban geek chic crowd but with an added twist using natural bamboo. We love Colin’s fresh take on a retro classic, available in Unisex styles.
