What Happened At The Fashioning The Future Awards 2011...

As you may know, we were thrilled to have been shortlisted for the "Unique Enterprise" prize, for the Fashioning the Future Awards 2011.  Last night, we attended the ceremony at the East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf, to bask in some runner-up glory.


The third annual ceremony was inspired by the UN's International Decade on Biodiversity, and saw applications from all over the globe submit projects for sustainability in fashion, to compete for six awards, including The Body Shop One to Watch recognition award.

The event was set in a stunning venue, with lots of delicious canapes and champagne flowing, and boasted a really fabulous mix of social entrepreneurs and fashion designers.  Most notably, we got chatting to Miranda Kaloudis, who chatted to us about her notions on sustainability.

But the most exciting part of the event was seeing number of Offset Warehouse customers exhibiting there!  There was a fantastic array of innovative and stunning designs incorporating Offset Warehouse fabrics, which demonstrates just how far designers are pushing the boundaries with ethical fabrics, to change the common perceptions of ethical design by creating both wearable and unique, innovative clothing.  They are continually proving that ethical does not have to mean unchic and untrendy.
