Fair Trade Clothing Meets Local Designer Fashion
Birds are chirping, blooms are budding, and the last patches of snow are finally melting away. Spring is definitely in the air. And most likely, your wardrobe could use some freshening up after a long, drab winter. What better way to get inspired by spring style than at Change Boutique‘s Fair Trade Designer Showcase.
Head to Willy St.’s Change Boutique on Friday, May 3 from 7-9 p.m. for a one-of-a-kind Design Showcase. Change Boutique teamed up with Chicago-based fair trade company Fair Earth and the UW-Madison Textile and Apparel Design Studies Department to create an ethically produced clothing line. Friday night’s event will exhibit this clothing line designed by local students, handcrafted by artisans in East Africa and sold exclusively at Change Boutique. Come and enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres while browsing the latest in fair trade fashion.
Change Boutique is located at 1252 Williamson St., Madison; (608) 237-2707.
