In September 2019, I took Vivid Element to London to participate in Pause Conscious Fashion Pop-Up during London Fashion Week. For 10 days Vivid Element was displayed alongside a gorgeous curation of sustainable fashion from international brands. The pop-up was in the grand, historic, Freemason Building and featured events centered around ethically made, eco conscious fashion and art such as a panel on the Role of Indigenous Culture in Sustainable Fashion, a performance by London rap band Studio 32 Oke, and a panel on Sustainable Fashion Influencers, among many others. I was able to travel to London to represent Portland slow fashion with my assistant (and sister) Tammy and the help of a small business grant from the state of Oregon.
I hope you enjoy these photos of Vivid Element in London!
Louise Kane of ReAdorn London, Tammy Lewis, and I created a mini photo shoot in front of the magnificent St.Paul’s Cathedral and on the pedestrian Millennium Bridge over the River Thames. Dresses by Vivid Element, and upcycled, zero waste jewelry by ReAdorn London. Louise and I also co-host the Slow Fashion Challenge.
Tammy and I wore Vivid Element every day in London. It truly makes great, comfy, versatile, packable travel clothing! I’m looking forward to future travels and adventure with Vivid Element. I’d love to know: where do you wear your Vivid Element clothing?
