Fashion Is Fighting For Elephants During London Fashion Week
FASHION WEEK IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!
WE ARE ELATED TO HAVE GOTTEN A PRIVATE INVITATION TO ELEPHANTASIA X LONDON FASHION WEEK (SPRING/SUMMER 2018)!
Although we can't attend the show on September 18th, we wanted to share how awesome this event is going to be!
London Fashion Week (LFW) SS18 hosts Elephantasia, combining conservation and couture with the vision and collaboration of 21 international designers. These designers will unveil to the fashion world their unique couture interpretations of “the elephant.”
DID YOU KNOW
- 1 Elephant dies every 15 minutes.
- 96 Elephants are killed each day.
- 35,000 elephants are lost year to ivory poaching.
To bring awareness to, and mitigate the poaching crisis, Fashion for Conservation (FFC) is joining forces with LFW venue Fashion Scout and conservation organizations world-wide. Their collaborative efforts will send a timely and vital message to fashion week attendees and viewers—while also empowering consumers with the knowledge that their buying decisions matter. Saying no to ivory, visiting ethical sanctuaries and making clothing purchases and donations that support critical conservation efforts can help ensure the survival of the elephant.
The mission of FFC is to protect wildlife and their habitats in collaboration with fashion designers, conservation organizations and media influencers. The exhibition Elephantasia is fashion fighting for elephants, and every species adversely affected by poaching.
Elephantasia is a campaign featuring unique international designers each season of its 3 year global tour 2016-2018 raising funds and awareness for the poaching crisis. The exhibition for the campaign debuted at fashion weeks in the US, Canada and Spain and this season’s collection will preview in 6 cities across Europe this summer and fall leading up to the finale presentation during LFW SS18.
Elephantasia, one of FCC’s campaigns, is altering the future of the fashion industry from one that regularly garners criticism from animal advocates. Our main objective is to not only support conservation but put it into practice.
