We’re currently in the midst of #SustainableSeptember at the moment here at IMAGE, and while anything fashion related is typically aimed at the ladies, the men in out there need to get on board just as much. Sustainable Fashion Dublin’s many projects have been on the up this year, but this weekend, they’re focusing on menswear, with a swap shop and panel discussion taking place this Sunday in the Tara Building. With guest speakers Jake McCabe, Billy Bunzari and Steve Reddy, the hosts Taz and Geraldine will chat about all things vintage and upcycled, with the opportunity to score some great pieces included.

And for next week, don’t miss a conversation with Vicky Phelan, as she launches her new book Overcoming in Dublin

Vicky Phelan’s story of resilience, bravery and justice is an inspiration to us all, and we can’t to read her new memoir, Overcoming, when it launches this month. Phelan was one of many women who were diagnosed with cervical cancer and not informed that a clinical audit carried out by the national screen programme CervicalCheck had revised their earlier, negative smear tests — meaning that their cancer could have been preventable. Vicky has become a national voice on the issue, campaigning for women’s lives around the country, as she fights her own struggle with cervical cancer. Eason are hosting a series of conversations with Vicky around the country to talk about her story, and to allow the public to hear her fight for the truth. Don’t miss out and book your tickets now.
