About

Following on from the success of our Sustainable Fashion Wales (SustFashWales) catwalk show in 2018, we want to create an event which is bigger and better for 2020

We will be showcasing the work of sustainable designers of all ages from primary and secondary school pupils to college and university students and of course from small and established designers from all over Wales and the wider UK.

Last year we featured primary school pupils organic cotton t-shirt designs to beachwear to bridal and everything in between! But all sustainable....

Next year we want to make it even better!

The 2020 event will be unique from most standard fashion shows as there will also be the opportunity to learn and interact with others. We will not only have information and designer stands but also various workshops, demonstrations and practical activities about how you can also join the sustainable fashion movement from upcycling old clothes, making bags from rubbish or making jewellery from junk! There will be lots of activities for all ages and abilities and will be a unique and exciting evening for all! We will also have an eco friendly glitter bar using biodegradable glitter!

After the workshops we will have a catwalk show to showcase some of the best talents in sustainable fashion that Wales has to offer! 


To do all of this we need to raise funds. Some of this will be covered through tickets but to ensure we are able to get the best venue, specialist experts and the best materials we will need more funds! This is where you and kickstarter come in.  We want to make sure it is not only a success but that everyone involved can be rewarded for offering their time and materials.

Why? We live in such worrying times and endless reports on the destruction of our planet so we want to promote positive change through positive action and we feel this show will do that, giving us the opportunity to celebrate all that is positive in the world.

Risks and challenges

As I have several years of experience of organising similar events in the past. I started organising similar events in 2007 so I am highly knowledgable of the risks and challenges that face this event.

The first challenge of organising a huge event is doing it alone (as I have in the past). I have overcome this by recruiting a small team of highly experienced volunteers. Each person will be responsible for different aspects of the show (from recruiting designer, sourcing hair and make up, managing models etc.) to ensure challenges are reduced and we work seamlessly as part of a team

The main risk of running a public event is ensuring ticket sales. I will be overcoming this by selling tickets in advance through Eventbrite. Eventbrite was used previously to sell tickets and I will start to sell tickets many months in advance to ensure finances can be managed.

I will also ensure I have the appropriate insurance in case of health or safety concerns.

As I have previously stated I am very experienced in organising similar events and have a team of experts to help. Through all of this, hard work and determination I anticipate this will be a highly successful show!
