    SEW (Supporting and Empowering Women) and The Social Studio have joined forces to hold an all day Pop Up Xmas Market at The Henley Club, once the home of Mirka Mora’s studio.

The rise of collaborations between social initiatives that are socially, ethically and innovative run emphasises the growth of enterprises working together to form clothing and accessory markets that are sustainable, empowering and bring communities closer together.
