Thumbs up to the Ideal Home Show 2012 which is featuring ethical living in various guises in its 104th year.
In the second year of it's partnership with The Prince's Foundation, this year will see the Prince's Pavilions in not one but three sections of the show. Showcasing the finest quality of British Design, each will satisfy the criteria and ethos of The Prince's Foundation of quality, sustainable technology and ethical production. Something tells me there won't be any Royal Wedding tea towels on show in the Arts and Crafts House though, mores the pity.
Its not only Royalty featuring; admirably, the Show is offering Croydon students from Carshalton College the chance to gain backstage experience in fashion show hair dressing and styling. Working on designers including Elissavet, a womenswear ethical fashion designer producing high end classics with a twist and Ramil Makinano, a Filipino-British designer who uses bright, neon, lighting as the reference for the colour palette, in contrast to the very dark colour of the medieval armour, Albert with an evening wear collection and Marcus Flylander and his street chic luxury brand "FLYLANDER".
