This blog has been written in accordance with Style in Exeter, a weeklong celebration of fashion. This Saturday (22nd September), InExeter and Sancho’s will be hosting the Slow Fashion Show in the Cathedral Nave. Emphasising sustainable fashion, the show demonstrates Autumn and Winter lines from these local businesses. The event will begin with a drinks reception at 18.30, and will run from 19.00-21.30, though if you’re looking to book, unfortunately the Slow Fashion Show is already sold out.
