Ethical Fashion Month Part 2

We are really keen to support all of our lovely artists who create with so much care about the environment and awareness of ethical fashion.  So we would also like our customers new and old to become more familiar with ethical fashion hence we are offering promotions this week as part of our Ethical Fashion Month –

On SATURDAY 8th SEPTEMBER we will be offering 10% discount on all items by 2 of our designers – Raggedy Rags and Abracadabra.

Raggedy Rags –  Raggedy is an independent fashion label creating one off ‘Waste Couture’ with social and environmental impact in mind.  Cast off clothes are taken from charity shops and reconstructed, upcycling them into unique and distinctive wearable art.  Ruffled layers and organic sculptural shapes are enlivened with intricate stitch work, making clothes to feel good about feeling good.  Find Raggedy at www.raggedyrags.co.uk

Abracadabra – And the fab Abracadabra uses quality recycled knitwear and textiles and restyles them into beautiful and wearable designs. They are our newest addition to the shop and we think they are fabulous

Tearing Up The Good Girl Script

A Date for Women with Vena Ramphal 

 

‘I told all my friends about your date after doing it. Many of them still talk about it. It strikes a chord with so many women’
Jackie, not such a good girl any more

Our next ‘Tearing Up the Good Girl Script’ date is hosted by the chic London boutique Bermondsey Fayre. Read on to find out what Jackie said strikes a chord with so many women.

 

We were taught to be good girls. Thats the trouble. Good girls don’t make happy women. Are you ready to stop being good and start being happy?

Our date will be dedicated to two questions:

1.Where in my life am I trying to be good instead of aiming to be happy?

2.What shifts need to occur for me to be happy in that area of my life?

If you are unhappy in your relationship but don’t want to rock the boat; or you feel overwhelmed by taking care of your family’s needs at the expense of your own, then its likely that you are playing out the good girl script.

We are brought up to be good girls. Its a script that runs so deep that, as adults, we can keep playing it out unconsciously. Our date will be structured in an informal workshop style, including guided exercises, teaching and discussion. My expertise is in contemporary gender theory and the technologies of the tantric/yogic traditions. I’ll share with you some invaluable tools that will help you identify, articulate and create a way of being that is less ‘good girl’ and more ‘happy woman’.

Date & time: Sunday 26th February  2012, 1pm to 5pm

Place: Bermondsey Fayre, 212 Bermondsey St, London SE1 3TQ

Cost: £40 (Payment by card, bank transfer or cash)

To book, contact Liz Dillon on 07749 453 894    PLEASE NOTE THAT BOOKING CLOSES AT 5PM ON THURSDAY 23RD                                                                                                                   

Another previous participant said:

It was wonderful to tear up the the good girl script with Vena. Since the workshop I’ve been noticing this issue everywhere, the session raised my awareness significantly. Following the workshop I felt more assertive and carefree, and like I’d made progress on some personal issues. Vena’s caring and empowering presence enables an immediate freedom of expression, her work is liberating and like a breath of fresh air.
