I recently attended a fashion show held in aid of the charity ‘Freedom Project, Ireland’, a charity established in response to the growing problem of Human Trafficking. It shocked me to hear that human trafficking is happening in my own country, and is growing at an alarming rate. This crime against humanity involves ‘recruiting, transporting, harbouring or receiving a person through a use of force and coercion, solely for the purpose of exploiting them’.
Becki Hodge from Freedom Project, Ireland hosted the event, and Menarys and Tempest supported it by providing clothes for the fashion show. There was also a tempting auction to raise funds.
Here are some of the items showcased on the night and on sale in Menarys and Tempest to buy now.
