After the huge success of O3 Gallery’s ‘Ethical Fashion Fest’ in March which formed part of Oxford Fashion Week 2011, the gallery made a commitment to continue its support and encouragement of sustainably produced fashion and design.
The O3 Ethical Fashion Project, a not-for-profit project run by O3 Gallery, is setting its sights on a larger-scale fashion show in 2012 that is able to offer a wider display of UK-based ethical designers, as well as other related events intended to provoke, educate and inspire. The project must raise the money needed to present such a showcase and consequently has applied for a Procter & Gamble Future Friendly award.
In their four year, the P&G Future Friendly awards exist to acknowledge great environmental efforts across the UK and Ireland. For Community Groups, such as the O3 Ethical Fashion Project, there is the chance of winning a regional award of up to £1,000, with regional winners going forward to compete for a national prize of £10,000 to put towards their work.
