Emma Watson, the actress famous for playing the part of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise, has launched herself wholeheartedly into the Fair Trade fashion arena with a clothing collection for People Tree. A glimpse of the range can be caught on the guardian online site today, but more excitingly it will receive its UK catwalk premiere here in Bristol at the Fairwear Fashion Show on February 25th.
The fashion show is being organised by the Bristol Fairtrade Network of which Bishopston Trading is a member, and follows on from last year's successful show that included a range designed and made by local fashion students using our organic Fairtrade cotton cloth. This year's show promises to be even better than last year's, with celebrity hosts and collections from the brightest and best in Fair Trade fashion. Our new Spring 2010 range will be making its first public appearance. 2010 marks 25 years of Bishopston Trading Company so we're extremely happy to be taking part in this high-profile event.
For us, these outfits designed and made by local students from our organic Fairtrade cotton cloth were the highlight of last year's show.
