The Slow Fashion Show with Sancho’s and In Exeter

“To have a fashion show in a cathedral might seem an odd juxtaposition of cultures. But let me tell you – it was perfect. There was a real buzz about the place, possibly to do with the excitement of such a trailblazing event.”


Have a conscious Christmas with Sancho’s

“[Sancho’s launched] their Conscious Christmas campaign which asks consumers to consider what they’re buying before purchasing. To ask themselves – does the recipient really want or need this? And will it last longer than a month? And if they do really do want or need it, and there’s a sustainable, ethical option to spend your hard-earned cash on, then that’s a big step towards a more conscious Christmas.”
