The FLUX Sustainability in Fashion Event & Exhibition
Join us on May 28th for the FLUX Sustainability in Fashion Event and Exhibition! This event will be held in ‘The Bank’ on James’s Street – The Digital Hub’s brand new event space.
This event will be hosted by FLUX studio member and slow fashion designer Sharon Sweeney Design. Sharon will open the event with a visual presentation highlighting the effects of fast fashion on the environment.
We are delighted to have Fionnuala Jay, podcaster, writer and content creator as a special guest. Sharon, who co-hosts ‘The Breakup Dress’ podcast, will interview Fionnuala live on stage & discuss Fionnuala’s journey from giving up fast fashion in 2020. They will discuss the process of trying to be a sustainable consumer of fashion, the challenges it presents and some tips and advice they’ve picked up along the way.
To finish off the event we will have a variety of short 5-minute talks from advocates of sustainability in fashion including Aine Hennessy (Henny Penny Vintage) , We Love Markets, Alison Byrne (Wildbird Studio)
This event will take place on Sunday 28th May from 1pm-2pm.

In the surrounding gallery space there will also be an exhibition of outfits, jewellery and accessories representing many designers, makers, vintage shops and organisations all flying the flag for sustainability in fashion.

We are hosting a showcase exhibition of some of our members' best work, featuring artworks, crafts, fashion and more. As well as marking the opening event of the Digital Hub's exciting new multi-purpose space - a former bank building on James' street - we are also using the event to relaunch our organisation with a new look! FLUX is the new name for BLOCK T, so this show will be a celebration of where we're at and where we wanna go :)
