Alison Hoddinott Book Launch

 Alison Hoddinott writes about the history of crime fiction set in Oxford from the early decades of the 20th century to the present. Her emphasis is on novels written by women and the ways in which their fiction deals with both the mystery and its solution and with the situation of women within the university and in the wider community.

This event will be held at Charlie's Last Stand (cnr Beardy and Jessie Streets)

The Fashion Revolution is a global movement that promotes transparency, ethical practice and sustainability throughout the fashion industry. The movement aims to show that change is possible and encourages those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion.

Fashion Revolution Week runs from the 23rd to 29th of April, a week where consumers and brands alike, are encouraged to think about and ask, who made my clothes?

In Response to Fashion Revolution Week, The Habadashery Club is hosting a series of hands-on, introductory workshops. These workshops focus on sustainable design ideas to encourage a more conscious approach to consuming fashion and textiles.
