Spring Collection - Sustainable Methods



Our Spring 20 range is here, using dead stock and left over materials, our New but old ranges show how sustainable fashion can be timeless, chic and effortless. Encapsulating beautiful world of sustainable fashion, is more than just a journey. When you by from us you are supporting a community of local crafts, instead of buying into throwaway fashion and damaging the planet. Therefore our team have selected their top 3 looks to take you from work, causal day dressing to night




The first item of choice, which we usually turn to has to be this effortless dress, which is ideal dressing down, yet equally add a pair of heels to elevate your style for the new year. The denim skirt at a midi lengths, these styles manage to be effortless yet high-impact and can create chic trans-seasonal looks by layering denim with smart blouses. Check out our new arrivals for futher details




Dina - Lace Blouse


Delicate embellishments, Linen or cotton blouses adorned with dainty flowers, unique yet subtle perfect pairing with linen trousers, for a smart casual style



All our clothing is vegan. Which is any garment that is made using non animal products or processes. Vegan clothing is a good for a sustainable wardrobe, however vegan clothing can include polyester and nylon, materials inherently included in a lot of fast fashion, yet we beleive that we are contributing to a more zero waste world by reusing materials.

In the furture we hope to stock more; plant based materials such as Tencel and
bamboo do not involve animal products or processes.

Making Memories - Party Seasons Top 5 picks





If you are transitioning to a more ethical and sustainable wardrobe, searching for that signature LBD that even Rachel Green would approve of .. This can be tough, therefore we have collated our recommendations for sustainable party outfits; here are 5 ethical and sustainable outfit ideas for a night out









First off, we have our Amelia Dress one of our timeless signatures and Clara is a newbie design that is perfect for the dance floor,  (style up with a belt or down with boots, if you are going for that Boho vibe). These two LBD's are made for comfort and style, which is difficult to come by with fast fashion alternatives.




  






Yet with our designs we look to create effortless styles from discarded materials and clothing; which gives you eco-points; when prepping for party season.






Greta and Ruth are fabulous repeat offenders that now come in different colours and lengths, check out the options, before you purchase










We know, last-minute panic purchase are usually the norm, but we feel a greater execution, comes with a greater awareness of sustainability. Therefore, this Christmas party season, we hope you take a different approach to clothes shopping for the festivities. Especially as most party sequins or embellishments are not biodegradable. Yet! do not fear, we have ways of creating dazzle with minimal harm to the environment.









Last but not least our Dina Lace Blouse are perfect for drinks at a bar or a winter wedding, made from deadstock, residual fabrics leftovers are sewn together by seamstresses in Gloucestershire with flattering sizing from a 6 to 20, our styles are an inclusive and all dresses are hand- or machine-washable; so no need to take it to the dry cleaners.

Culture - Becoming a Change Maker







The climate movement, what all the fuss is about? The reality of how we as humans have been living is causing unfathomable damage to the planet.  With climate strikes and protests around the world; it has become an opportunity to involve everyone in this fight for our common future to focus on solidarity for awareness and change. 
















That’s what the climate strikes are: a peaceful reminder that young and old on every continent are now called to an intrinsically global fight. 





How can you make a difference, when the damage is already done you ask?  

Changing the products we buy, not just the clothes we wear; but also thinking about meal preparation to reduce waste, shopping in independent stores or buying second hand or hand crafted and purchasing for refillable stores.







It will take small steps, but the more small steps you make the easier it becomes. For tips on how to be more eco-conscious why not check out our guide to ethical shopping

Conscious Shopping Tips





We've made a commitment to conscious fashion ethically made with a zero waste ethos.




Trends come and go, we consume at rates which are harmful to the environment. Yet there is more that we can do to stop waste and shop ethically. Discover more brands committed to change like ourselves on our shop unique selection, here























When buying an item of clothing, there are so many things to consider. It’s useful to ask yourself questions, like is it an investment classic or a short-lived trend? Do you really need it? Will you wear it just a handful of times or does it have longevity? 





Conscious shopping guide. 

All of these are important to consider before you purchase any item. You can learn more in our conscious shopping guide.




CARE, REPAIR, RE-WEAR


Make loved clothes last by giving them the real care that they need. How you wash, store and care for your clothing makes all the difference. Check out our some simple tips here

  


Changing our spending habits, rather than trying to overhaul your whole wardrobe, why not invest in a handful of key pieces that will last the test of time.
