Back to Black

C o n c e p t  ~

CHIC Management began June 4th 2010 with our first event “The Black and Blue Fair”. Items were created and sold in a small venue with mental health facts printed on the walls, and information about mental health issues in note dispensers and put inside some of the product boxes (where designers agreed).

CHIC all began with my passion to spread the word about mental health and its affect on absolutely everything we do. Including the people we know, how we interact with them, how they react to us… everything. We covered issues that were wide ranging like bullying, to more specific like anorexia nervosa.

This February I’d like to go back to CHIC’s roots and using the reputation CHIC has accumulated over the years remind people about the serious issues that I feel so strongly about.

This event will be free to participate in and paid for by me (Keira).

New and exclusive items will be designed to form a collection inspired by words of hope and courage.

In the original fair we covered the following topics which included mental health issues, disorders, neurological issues and other things that impact peoples lives.: addiction, adhd, autism, bereavement, bipolar disorder, body dysmorphic disorder, bullying, depression, eating disorders, gender dysphoria, generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic attacks, phobias, post-traumatic stress, seasonal affective disorder, epilepsy, self harm and suicide.

Some of our designers chose to write notecards of their own about how a mental health issue affected them personally. We greatly appreciated this sharing of stories and got many many IMs of thanks and tears from the public about the event.

Please note that you will receive all of the funds from the sales of your products as this is an AWARENESS event, not a charity event (although we will have the information about the charities at the event). You may choose to donate it to charity (if so, please say so on your vendors) or not.
