Bristol will host actress Emma Watson’s People Tree Fair Trade Clothing Line at The Fairwear 2010 fashion show in Bristol Cathedral today, Thursday, 25th February 2010. Unfortunately Emma couldn’t make an appearance because her schedule is full at the moment.  The collection used 100% organic and Fair Trade certified cotton, and made entirely by fair-trade groups by hand, using hand weaving, hand knitting and hand embroidery to create livelihoods for some of the most disadvantaged people in India, Bangladesh and Nepal. All profits from the line will go to the People Tree foundation supporting fair trade and environmental awareness in the fashion industry.  Emma have confirmed that the continuance of her work with People Tree will depend on the success of the line and that she hopes it will be the beginning of making a difference.
