April 17 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm Free

With limited numbers this is an RSVP event so please get in touch is you are interested in joining Manchesters Fashion Revolution. thebeethrive@gmail.com

Honouring the sixth anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster, THE BEE THRIVE pledges to swap fast fashion tees for it’s sustainable organic T-shirts as it spreads the word on Ethical Fashion Revolution.

The Manchester-based collective promises to swap tees for the first fifty people who attend an event it’s hosting on Wednesday, April 17, to mark the start of Ethical Fashion Week in the heart of the city’s Northern Quarter, renowned as Cottonopolis at the height of the Industrial revolution.   

There will be a chance to preview new collections from designers, jewellery and accessory makers, as well as try out beauty treatments – all from companies and individuals committed to producing natural, beautiful pieces, in an environmentally sustainable way which recognise human rights.

THE BEE THRIVE founder Gemma Gratton said: “It’s a chance to join the real fashion revolution and show that we can create stunning clothes, accessories, jewellery and beauty products, made without a human or environmental price tag.”

There’ll be pop up shops, celebrities, DJs, hand massages and gift vouchers on the night.

We ask all guests bring a T-Shirt from a fast-fashion chain they will have purchased, and in exchange the first fifty guests will be able to swap it for an organic ‘THE BEE THRIVE’ tee. Old tees will be recycled by the Manchester Art Project, details of which will be unveiled on the evening. 

People of Manchester and North West UK – come and see what we have in store for you.
