What are you doing on October 26? Nothing? Perfect! Join me at Metamorphosis Eco-Fashion Show for your dose of daily Ottawa Fashion and guilt-free shopping!
Metamorphosis Eco Fashion Show and Marketplace is an event that showcases and supports environmentally-minded emerging fashion designers in the Ottawa area. Hosted by EcoEquitable, Metamorphosis is Ottawa’s newest Fashion Show to enter the social, artitist and ecoconscious scene. It’s a chance to showcase local Ottawa talent and slowly put to rest the practices behind fast-fashion, hopefully for more than just one night.
Founded in 2002, EcoEquitable Inc. is a registered social Canadian enterprise, providing temporary employment and skills development training through small-scale textile recycling.
I am 100% guilty of indulging in non-ecoconscious clothing. I am sure you can agree that finding larger sizes is hard enough, let alone adding another layer of “where/how is this made?” But the interesting fact is, when clothes are hand-made by a local person, it can often be made to measure. It may cost a little more, but it will look amazing (and you will feel amazing knowing you made a difference!) I urge you to get out of your comfort zone and come explore the event with me.
Supporting this event will directly impact the local businesses in your community and leave a small but mighty footprint in the movement towards a safer and cleaner fashion industry. We can’t make a change happen overnight, but we can all start somewhere.
Support the cause
If you have nothing to wear and want to glam it up for the event, Rent Frock Repeat will be donating 10% of all rental sales to EcoEquitable. Make sure you use code “ECO16” to track all donations.
I’ll be getting dolled up with my friend Malorie who just launched her Canadian sustainable fashion e-store, Either Or. She will be at the event and will showcase her collection in person! I can’t wait to show you what we put together!
