Red Light Campaign announces ethical designer and vintage fashion show to highlight human trafficking’s impact on the fashion industry

Red Light Campaign, an awareness-raising campaign against human trafficking, has announced TRAFFICK-STOPPING VINTAGE – an ethical designer and vintage fashion show to highlight the role of human trafficking in the fashion industry. 

The main catwalk will showcase vintage and ethical designer looks with individual items from the show to be sold in a silent auction, housed in Avalon’s Red Light VIP room. There will also be talks from sustainable fashion expert and social and cultural innovator Amisha Ghadiali and the General Manager of the Human Trafficking Foundation, Ann Hamilton.

Highlights from the catwalk will include a handbag donated by Lily Cole, clothes by Orsola de Castro’s From Somewhere, Emesha, Ada Zanditon, People Tree and Fashion Compassion brands, and clothes from vintage shops such as A room in my house, The Vintage Store - brick lane, and budding fashion designers such as Jennifer Sturrock. The ethical fashion boutique Fashion Compassion has also donated pieces by Bhalo.

HOBs have donated hairstylists to style the catwalk and The Body Shop, Abel and Cole, Lush, Cath Kidson, the Muzungu Sisters and award-winning artist Cecile Elstein and Laura Fishman (shortlisted for the Cass art prize) are among those to have donated prizes for the raffle.

Tickets can be bought in advance from Red Light Campaign’s website www.redlightcampaign.org or on the door for £10 (£5 concession).  There will be a bar and cupcakes will be provided.

Wednesday 30th November 2011, 7pm @ Avalon, 141-143 Shoreditch High Street
