This year during Fairtrade Fortnight, Bristol Cathedral hosted its first Fairtrade Fashion Show. With an audience of over 500, speeches from Secretary of State Douglas Alexander, FiveG man Sir Steve Redgrave and Fairtrade cocoa farmers from Ghana, it was a great showcase of how far Fair Trade Fashion has come in recent years. However, the highlight of the evening was a collection designed and made by local students from Filton College, using Fairtrade certifed organic cotton cloth from Bishopston Trading Company.

Fair trade fashion is always great. It showcases the designs of local designers especially students with potential in dressmaking. For me cotton is always a good material use in dress, it’s comfortable in any weather. I just wonder if the jerseys of our players were made by cotton? I think not. Well I heard Shaquille loves cotton made pants and he love signature sneakers. Well if Shaq traded to Cavs then it only means good profit for his family. His kids and wife will enjoy good designer cuts of clothes and dresses. I think that is what a celebrity/sport icons needs, things that are always in fashion.
