Our Social Fabric is a non-profit dedicated to textiles recycling and re-manufacturing. They help to divert the staggering amount of unused textiles that flood our landfills. They have monthly sales of these off-cuts and castaway fabrics which is a true delight for any crafter. Pause for cell phone panorama of their last sale:
Not pictured: me leaving with two giant bolts of fabric and other bits for just over $50; ridiculous.
To the point… This Saturday, they are holding a Vintage Fashion show at the Rickshaw Theatre to raise funds for their venture.
This event seems like a great excuse whip out that retro outfit and enjoy an evening of live entertainment. Six vintage clothing stores, each representing a different era and theme, will strut their stuff on the catwalk in a friendly competition judged by the audience. If you’re one of those audience members your outfit might just win you VIP passes to Eco-Fashion Week too. Live music from Juno Award winning Moka Only and local band Prisoners will then kick the evening into high-gear afterwards.
