Which human interest stories are lurking inside your wardrobe? How can you find out who made your clothes and in what sort of conditions? And what can you do to combat malpractice in the clothing industry?! During the two-day Fair Fashion Lab Festival, the Humanity House will be bursting with exciting activities designed to answer these two very urgent questions.
Label Harry verovert Nederland met tune-filosofie
Harry is very happy to announce that besides Sissy Boy Eindhoven, also Sissy-Boy Amsterdam is showing the traveling exhibition ‘Wall of tunes’. The beautiful pictures in the exposition are made by Dim Balsem. Sissy-Boy Amsterdam recently re-opened it doors in the famous Magna Plaza Amsterdam at the Dam square. Hope to see you there! — at Magna Plaza Amsterdam.
Harry is very much in tune this month. He is enjoying the summer to the fullest with coffees in the morning sun, lazy days on the beach and picknicks in the park. On top of that Harry is invited to some awesome festivals!
Curious where to find Harry’s gift?
You can order Harry’s gift (includes the iconic tank top (Feminine or Loose fit) + the book) online via Charlie+Mary ‘s true fashion shop.

Expectations were high after Harry’s first ‘Share your tune’ talk show and you could feel the excitement entering Harry’s Gallery Club last Thursday. The guests were welcomed with tunes of Amsterdam based DJ Daniel Zuur. And also during the talk show Daniel treated the public to a wicked live performance! When Daniel Zuur plays somewhere there is always ‘LIVE’ behind his name, “people don’t always get this” he explains. ” I make live compositions of music. During Harry’s ‘Share your tune’ talk show but also in clubs.” Daniel’s tunes were accompanied by cool organic beer by Gulpener and organic wine by Grab-a-Grape.
Hidden in the back of the Charlie + Mary conceptstore in de Pijp in Amsterdam is Harry’s Gallery Club. Last Thursday the first ‘Share Your tune’ talk show took place in this jazzy venue.
Why? Because Harry believes that people in tune take better care of the world around them, and therefore the brand hopes to inspire people from all over the world to find their tune. Hearing others talk about their tune can bring one closer to finding their tune. During the night Yinske Silva and Elliot Muusses treated the visitors of Harry’s Gallery Club on beautiful jazzy tunes. This intimate mini concert gave the night a speak-easy feel.
Today it is fashion revolution day. Fashion is a force to be reckoned with. It celebrates, provokes, and entertains. And, from today, it’s going to do even more. Because we’re turning fashion into a force for good.
