As a city overflowing with ethical values and morality, Brighton is the perfect location to propel and promote sustainable fashion. Brighton Fashion Week is presenting a day of Sustainable Fashion, featuring The Sustain Debate and The Sustain Catwalk, which will be unveiling an exclusive recycled dress created by Kelly Booth at Veolia.

To push the theme of sustainability in fashion further, Brighton Fashion Week is presenting for the first time, The Sustain Debate.

Being held in the Sallis Benney in the heart of Brighton, the Sustain Debate involves key influences within fashion, including MP Caroline Lucas, Labour member Purna Sen, Head of Fashion Revolution Carrie Sommers, the CEO of the Ethical Fashion Forum and Ben Ramsden of Pants to Poverty. This influential panel will discuss the ethics and sustainability of the fashion industry, alongside a participating audience of 200 guests.

Following this will be The Sustain Catwalk, this unapologetically pushes the boundaries of sustainable fashion as we know it, forcing us to rethink the way we look and feel about fashion.  A range of sustainable fashion designers will be showcasing their Spring/Summer 15 Collections exclusively for Brighton Fashion Week. Kelly Booth will reveal a one of a kind, hand made dress created from over 250 pieces of recycled tin, cardboard and bottles. This astonishing dress will kick off The Sustain Catwalk Show in style.
