Wear Emotion Challenge Supporters


Sometimes I feel invisible by Cunnington & Sanderson.


The #wearemotionchallenge began in September 2021 set by Cunnington & Sanderson @cunningtonandsanderson and they plan to continue to help fight the stigma surrounding mental health until further notice. The aim of the challenge is to raise mental health awareness, to talk about emotions, and to support others.


The wear emotion challenge has already successfully raised funds for charities including Mental Health Foundation, Mind, and the Samaritans with thanks to the kind and inspiring participants. The British design duo hope with your kind, encouraging and creative support, this powerful and emotive movement will continue to grow and make a positive difference to peoples lives.


"There are so many stories that clothes can tell."

Mental Health Awareness is also being created with Special thanks to Bankfield museum @bankfieldmuseum and the amazing curators of the Belonging: Fashion and a Sense of Place exhibition where Cunnington & Sanderson currently have on display sustainable and thought provoking garments which invite the museum visitors to take part in the challenge. Located in Halifax and on display until March 2022.
