Something for the Weekend – EJF Pop Up Shop in Carnaby Street

April 29, 2010 in Slow Luxury Fashion

Love the idea of guerrilla fashion and art coming together to showcase the hottest names in ethical fashion? Then you will appreciate the latest pop up at No 57 Carnaby Street.

Make a beeline for this beguiling, Alice-in-Wonderland, candy-coloured eco department store where you can browse through a sweet shop array of ethical fashion talent, watch a movie, attend a talk and indulge in tea and cakes.

Cult label Ciel will be selling their divinely pretty vintage Liberty print knickers and gossamer high summer dresses, alongside covetable pieces from Katharine Hamnett, From Somewhere, Veja, Pants to Poverty, Lowie and Monkey Genes. Not to mention the original green goddess shoes from Beyond Skin and svelte, luxury upcycled separates from new label Goodone.

Then snap up a stunning, limited edition organic, continental cotton T-shirt as fashion and art collide beautifully with designs by Giles Deacon, Alice Temperley, Zandra Rhodes, Luella, Jenny Packham, Richard Nicoll and Betty Jackson, modelled (below) by Ashley Jensen to benefit EJF’s Cotton Awareness Campaign.

It’s all in a great cause too: All profits go to the Ethical Justice Foundation (EJF) – a campaigning charity that exists to protect people and the planet. What are you waiting for?

Eco-Chic Shop open now until May 4th.

  1. Hope the event raised some money for the environmental justice foundation. I just found this page by accident, a couple of years after the event, while looking-up stuff about Pants to Poverty who have a new web site.

    From Somewhere still seem to exist as a blog, but the web shop home page of their site is blank.
    Beyond Skin are still going as Hens Teeth Ltd, with the same web site
    Monkey Genes are still going and made in the UK, which is great
    Goodeone are still going with an office in London that can organise production at a workshop in Bulgaria
    Veja are still easy to find online, as are
    Lowie, with shops in London and Brighton by the look of their site>
    http://pantstopoverty.org.uk – new site
