Friends of the Earth - Eco Fashion Pop Up

Camden Friends of the Earth - 

Eco Fashion Pop Up

On Sunday I took part in an eco fashion pop up organised by Camden Friends of the Earth group at the Red Hand Gallery (above Tufnell Park Tavern).

It was a small event but full of interesting and like minded artists, designers and vintage enthusiasts. I left feeling inspired!

These amazing dresses were designed & made by Kumiko Tani from Re-cycle-Style and they are truly works of art!

This is Caroline Jones creating a wonderful flower from shredded plastic bags. She fuses them together by placing them between greaseproof paper and applying heat with an iron, so simple but really effective. 

She also sells bags & purses made in the same way and runs workshops. For more info contact: carolinemejones@hotmail.com

This is the work of jewellery designer Annie Sherburne, beautiful, colourful & sparkly pieces re-worked from broken jewellery & found objects.

Annie also has a yoga studio on Columbia Road in East London - check out: gogoyoga.co.uk

This is a piece of artwork in the gallery that I couldn't stop looking at, its painted on the glass of a window with the original frame still intact, a great idea. 

Its called 'Brittle Suit of Armour' by David Shillinglaw.

Underneath this picture was a stall by Lumoi which I totally failed to take a photo of, but they offer a great upcycling service for your old unwanted or broken jewellery - go to lumoi.com for more info.

Po-Zu Ecological Footwear had a popular sample sale, unfortunately there wasn't any in my size :(  For more info about their shoes visit: po-zu.com

There was some lovely vintage clothing from Garite French Vintage - I love this colourful cycling skirt! Oo la la

And Mia Loves Coco had this lovely blouse.
