THE Sidmouth Fairtrade Group held a fashion show and fayre over the weekend to show off their range of ethical clothing
The event, which was held at All Saints Church, attracted a big audience who watched the models strut their stuff in a range of ethically made and traded goods.
Local department store Fields showcased a selection of their clothes, while Exeter based Sancho’s Dress – who have supported Sidmouth’s desire to become a Fairtrade Town from the start – were also present.
Following the show, there was a fayre with plenty of stalls selling fairly traded products, as well as refreshments and a raffle.
Chris Hardy, who introduced the models, said: “I think you’ll agree that we have seen a fantastic range of gorgeous clothes and accessories which anyone would be proud to wear. Proud because they look gorgeous but more importantly because they have been ethically produced enabling people to become self sufficient using their skills to create a better world for themselves and the environment.
“Please support Fairtrade Fashion in any way you can – it is so important to make it the future of fashion for us all.”
