Fashion Show 2010 Report

Calvary Baptist Church in Canton, Cardiff, played host to 120 eager fair trade at the Fair Do’s annual fashion on Saturday 22 May 2010 at 7.30pm. This was the tenth show put on by Fair Do’s, Cardiff’s first fair trade shop, and the second time Calvary Baptist has been the venue.

Models strutted their stuff wearing the latest fair trade fashion sourced from around the world – with clothing, accessories and jewelry from three continents.

There was also a special guest at the show: Leah Mitula of Denur Crafts. She spoke about the handmade jewelry produced by her company in Kenya, which offers employment opportunities to women, especially single parents. She told the audience how her craft brings freedom to many women, and enables their children to go to school, thereby breaking the cycle of poverty that many families are trapped in.
