Events: solidarity parades and exhibitions

Every year, the association organises an event to raise public awareness of the problem of textile pollution and the need for action in terms of recycling.

Chaussettes Orphelines 2018 fashion show

For 3 years now, this event has taken the form of a large solidarity parade that mixes rhythm and colours. It comes after months of preparation, involvement and motivation of the inhabitants of the goutte d'or district in Paris who, on this occasion, plunge into a dynamic universe of dreams and passion likely to give rise to vocations.

This emblematic annual event combines fashion, creation, innovation and solidarity. It involves companies concerned by sustainable development and charities. These partnerships allow us tooffer beautiful and useful pieces tothe underprivileged. The big fashion show also allows us to spread a viable economic and social model: the circular economy at the service of solidarity. It is an opportunity for us to increase our collections and recycle more.

Finally, it is always a great pleasure and pride to show our new collections from textile recycling!

The parades are organised with the support of companies as part of their CSR programme.
