5 Events You Shouldn't Miss This Brighton Fashion Revolution Week

Brighton Fashion Revolution Week is back for the third year in a row, curated by Revival Collective, the number one ethical and sustainable fashion community in Brighton. Brighton Girl has been involved in some way or another from the very beginning and this year we're hosting our very own panel event on Wednesday, the 24th April, discussing whether or not fast fashion can ever be sustainable.  

We also want to share these 5 events that all Brighton Girls should go to:
