charity chic

Charity Chic sustainable fashion initiative Edinburgh

Charity Chic was set up at St Andrew’s and St George’s West to explore sustainable fashion. Under the logo, we have:

  • held fashion shows using  recycled fabrics and accessories
  • invited charity shops to set up stalls for a day
  • invited designers working in recycled materials to use our space
  • organised exhibitions of accessories and Fair trade goods
  • set up competitions with schools and art students to design recycled clothes
  • run “swishes” – swap shops of clothes
  • campaigned for better conditions for garment workers in Bangladesh

 

We have worked with local partners – major retailers including Harvey Nichols and John Lewis, charities including Shelter and Barnardo’s and a host of local makers.

Charity Chic fits with our eco-congregation status – and is great fun and good value!

If you’d like to help us keep compassion in fashion please get in touch!
