London West, UK - What do you mean SALVO, the world's first architectural salvage fair is adding fashion stands? The truth is, fashion was already all over the fair field. Salvo's exhibitors have more dealings with the biggest fashion houses than most "fashion" people and the increasing awareness of sustainability is only bringing these industries closer.
Cue SALVO 2017's Green Living theme. Highlighting the commonly overlooked environmental benefits of salvage and antiques, this year's theme resonates with any industry touching environmental concerns. Coming from a fashion background, the connection between antiques, salvage and fashion feels natural to me. But what does Green Living fashion look like?
Vintage clothing may not be sustainable, but like antiques their environmental cost has already been paid. What is lesser known is the burgeoning sustainable fashion industry. SALVO is looking to feature daring sustainable fashion pioneers and I have partnered for the privilege to find them.
Contact me, Sara Morel stylesalvo@icloud (dot) com if you are interested in having a stand that is ethical and style-savvy. I am seeking women's and men's fashion and accessories.
