If you're searching for some serious style on a budget, but don't want to contribute to the growing environmental and ethical problems related to fast fashion, then we have the perfect sustainable, ethical fashion event for you.
Designers in the City is an Irish organisation which exists to empower local brands, to enable burgeoning talent to find their platform and to encourage environmentally friendly fashion.
Special pop up store events take place in quirky and sociable locations for the public to have a whole other type of shopping experience.
Now they're bringing their pop up shop to the Chelsea Drugstore this February, and we cannot WAIT:
Calling all fashionistas!! A unique #DublinFashion event is happening next month at @ChelDrugStorDub with #DesignersInTheCity! Supporting designers in a different kind of venue, this pop up shop will take place on February 4th.

On February 4 at 5pm, the event launches at the gorgeous and elegant location, allowing local designers and their work to be seen and appreciated by Dubliners.
Their venues act as partners for their creativity, and facilitate the great atmosphere, unique designers and local artists while giving you a great day out.
Designers in the City have also carried out exclusive interviews with fashionistas like Katrina McElroy from Slow Fashion Salon and Claire Prouvost, who educate the viewer about fast fashion, as well as Aga Kuchminster. who creates vegan face cream.

From vegan beauty products, stunning jewellery and all kinds of fashion and styles, the Designers in the City event is definitely not to be missed.
Fashion is the SECOND most polluting industry after oil, according to the World Economic Forum. There are also $46.7 BILLION worth of clothes in UK closets, and it takes a shocking 2,700 litres of water to make just one t-shirt.
The textile industry is also the second biggest water polluter, which has hugely damaging effects worldwide.
We need to start making some vital changes to how we wear, buy, and produce fashion. Educating ourselves and shopping as events like Designers in the City's creation is the ideal place to start.
The Chelsea Drugstore is located on 25 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2.
