Well Fashioned: Eco Style in the UK A Crafts Council Touring Exhibition

TWO ROOMS OF FABULOUS FASHION from the UKís hottest young designers who make clothes that donít cost the earth, can be found at the Crafts Council Gallery this spring. Well Fashioned presents ecologically and ethically sound clothes and accessories from 20 pioneering fashion labels.

Well Fashioned is the first survey of the UKís £43 million eco-fashion industry. Five years in development, this exhibition celebrates the future of fashion with exhibits ranging from customised denim and multi-functional streetwear to eco-friendly wedding dresses and recycled evening wear.

Well Fashioned examines the various ways in which fashion designers approach Ďgreení fashion, from materials and processes to concepts and techniques. Some outfits use organic or alternative fabrics like hemp, bamboo, wild silk and ingeo. Other exhibitors consider the ecological value of synthetic fabrics and biodegradable and recycled plastics.
