Sustainability In Your Wardrobe

The tricky topic of how we can make changes towards a more sustainable way of clothes shopping.

As the month-long circus of designer catwalk shows draw to an end, in amongst focusing on the newest trends, sustainability was also firmly on the agenda. Fittingly as fashion is one of worlds the biggest pollutants – something that I have seen first-hand as a fashion designer and stylist visiting factories in Turkey, India, Sri Lanka and China.

The good new is many manufacturers have taken steps to being more environmentally friendly by introducing green directives such as BCI (Better Cotton Initiative), which reduces the vast amount of water it takes to produce cotton. You can also play your part too, by considering the way you shop. Not buying clothes ever again or only buying secondhand isn’t realistic, but by looking at how, when and why you shop it can start to make a difference.
