FAD’s festive fair last week was a huge success with over 150 people attending over two days to grab themselves some fantastic fabric and fashion bargains.
On Wednesday evening FAD held a special preview for our young volunteers with festive food and drinks, while on Thursday and Friday the office was crammed with everyone from industry professionals and FAD finalists, to teachers and school children.
Bags were filled with fabric for £7, while students spent hours sifting through buttons, trimmings and belts for their latest undergraduate collections and college projects.
It was a great event that brought everyone together before the busy festive season, and also helped FAD to raise over £1,000 towards calico and new sewing equipment for Fashion Futures 2 workshops next year.
Thanks to everyone who attended, to our amazing volunteers for all their time spent folding fabric and ‘setting up shop’, and to our generous industry supporters, River Island and Aurora Fashions who donated most of our stock!
