BICBIM fave, Gung Ho, is launching their SS19 “Food for Thought” collection with a series of seriously cool parties, starting on Friday 22 February.
Gung Ho has joined forces with Hackney’s newly launched Plant Hub, a plant-based culinary academy, café and deli, to offer a weekend of the best in sustainable food and fashion.
Their latest designs, which are inspired by the impact food has on the environment, will be modelled by real women – brilliant chefs and industry wave makers.
All of Gung Ho’s collections weave meaning into the prints by illustrating particular environmental issues. Every garment is handmade in London using sustainable fabrics.
“I’m driven by desire to create fashion that means more,” says founder Sophie Dunster. “That way, you cannot only wear what you love, but what you believe in.”
