Jacket Required announces eco line-up for January show
today Dec 12, 2018
Premium fashion trade show Jacket Required will be showcasing a larger number of eco brands at its upcoming event in January as part of its goal of promoting a more sustainable future for the industry.
Sustainable brands including Blackhorse Lane Ateliers, Howies, Teva, Tretorn, Peak Performance, Toms, Birkenstock, Fjällräven, Sandqvist, Conscious Step, Absolutely Bear, Didriksons, Element, and Far Afield will form the event’s eco line-up.
Additionally, Blackhorse Lane Ateliers, the only company to manufacture jeans in London, will demonstrate its denim repair techniques to give new life to old jeans to visitors of the trade fair. The company founded by Bilgehan Ates opened its doors in 2016, and specialises in making and selling ready-to-wear selvedge and organic raw denim.
Lindsay Hoyes, event director of Jacket Required said: “The dedicated team behind Blackhorse Lane Ateliers epitomises the movement towards conscious fashion rather than the fashion conscious and it, together with the growing number of ethical and sustainable brands showing at Jacket Required, is a heartening indication that the industry is waking up and reimagining what the future of fashion could be.”
The group of sustainable brands will further boost Jacket Required’s mix of international menswear, womenswear, footwear, accessories and lifestyle brands. Other brands confirmed for the January show include Le Mont Saint Michel, Peregrine Clothing, Knickerbocker and Colourful Standard.
Jacket Required will return to London’s Old Truman Brewery on 23-24 January 2019.
