Vendor Spotlight: Hopeful Traders
Hopeful Traders is a social arts project and clothing brand, tackling the issues that plague our society through collaboration with those affected by them. David Tovey (pictured) has weathered cancer, cardiac arrest, HIV and homelessness, and is one of Hopeful Traders prominent designers.
Other designers include ROL (Ray of Light) and ANXTI. By collaborating with those who have been affected by homelessness, Hopeful Traders brings a unique range, while showcasing the creativity of the community and raising much-needed funds for organisations on the front line of homelessness.
Designers also nominate a charity to receive a percentage of sales of their clothing, allowing them to give back to the organisations that have supported them and their community.
