It’s Fashion Revolution Week! And LSD is back with an even bigger programme of events, talks, workshops and brands. This month we welcome Eirinn Hayhow onto the programme, who will be showcasing her new collection at our very first live catwalk show!…

The Boiler House is a venue putting action and innovation for progress at the forefront and we care about where our clothes come from, how they’ve been made, and the impact this has on People and Planet. That’s why we launched Let’s Slow Down (LSD) during London Fashion Week in February 2020.

After the success of the first events, we’re back with a whole new programme designed to support and inspire behaviour change in favour of a more sustainable future.

***APRIL 2020 PROGRAMME***

SATURDAY 25TH

  • 10:30am – ‘Polluted Garden’ – Fashion Show with Eirinn Hayhow

We are thrilled to announce that Let’s Slow Down Fashion Revolution Edition with a catwalk show from highly acclaimed fashion brand, EIRINN HAYHOW.

EIRINN HAYHOW is a gender fluid, high-vibing clothing brand, with each garment salvaged with love, from unwanted materials. Designer, Erin, has curated waste-free catwalks at National Galleries in the UK and Soho House Berlin, in her protest to make changes to the fast fashion industry.
