Season Premiere October 18, 2017 “The True Cost” and Fair Clothing Faire

The Fashion Industry is one of the largest polluters and producers of waste on the planet.  Who knew?  Then there is the well-known unsafe working conditions and poorly paid workers, which has not improved even tho it has come into the occasional media limelight over the past 10 years.  It is well past time for a re-evaluation of our attitude towards clothing. and this film is an eye-opening encouragement to do just that.

The film will be preceded by a Fair Clothing Faire in the theatre foyer featuring upcyclers (makers of clothing and accessories such as bags, belts, blankets and footwear from used clothing and other used materials) and vintage/used clothing from local thrift stores.

Vendors to date: jamin creations (@jamin.creations); The Hollow Tree (@thehollowtreeshop); Gillian Gravenor; Jean Gig Clothing (@jeangigclothing); Fawn V vintage clothing; Sean S. Keough (keoughkeough.com); Sooke Family Resource Society Thrift Store; Anna Smandych.

DOORS OPEN AT 6:45 FOR BROWSING AT THE FAIRE; FILM WILL START AT 7:30.  Bring some cash, as you might want to do some early Christmas season shopping, and not all vendors will be able to process cards.
