When people think of ethical fashion, it can often conjure up an image of hessian dresses and itchy material. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. Sustainable fashion is now a priority for many modern consumers and stylish, eco-friendly brands are becoming increasingly popular. Fast, cheap fashion is widely available but I try to consider at what cost this level of fashion consumption has on the workers producing them and our environment as a whole. There are some high-street brands that follow a simple code of conduct that is committed to ethical trading. This means ensuring that factories have good working conditions and that workers earn a fair wage and and treated with respect. I love shopping at ASOS and ASOS Eco Edit is an eco-friendly edit of sustainable clothing, accessories and beauty buys, sourced from across the globe. Such a stylish and unique selection of fashion, all at a reasonable price, what’s not to love! http://www.asos.com/women/eco-brands/cat/?cid=10062&cr=6&affid=10607&pubref=1171&transaction_id=1020823466e96d08a4ad4fd90f5c2a Stella McCartney is a lifelong vegetarian and the leader in sustainable luxury fashion. She doesn’t use fur or leather in her collections and is committed to operating a responsible, honest and modern business. http://www.stellamccartney.com/gb All these brands, and many more, are dedicated to changing the perception of eco fashion. I will be supporting them whole-heartedly. We don’t need to compromise when it comes to sustainable fashion. It needn’t cost you anything to be eco-friendly as you can simply recycle! Here I am in an old grey cotton t-shirt, tied in front with a grey cardigan and black jeans….a really simple look. What ethical brands do you like to use? Would love to hear from you all.
