Event details

With one-third of consumers willing to choose brands that help environmental and social improvement, the circular fashion movement is on the rise.

White Rose have been a huge part of this movement and grown significantly alongside it.

Today, White Rose has a distribution centre, an online Depop store and over ten high street stores selling handpicked recycled fashion in Nottingham, Leicester, Sheffield and Newark.

In the future, the team want to expand White Rose into a chain of up to 20 shops in the next four years to raise more funds for the trust.

Come along to follow the White Rose journey – looking and how it all started through to them pioneering sustainable fashion in the UK and raising money for the Aegis Trust, a charity working to prevent genocide and mass atrocities around the world.
