This dress is definitely going to get lots of wear this summer. It is by one of my favourite ethical/ sustainable fashion brands Skunkfunk and is made from a really soft jersey making it really comfy to wear. If you don’t already know about Skunkfunk, their company ethos is to make fashion that endures trends, with clothes that can be worn in multiple ways and for a variety of occasions. They also use eco friendly materials including organic cotton, recycled polyester fibers and regenerated cellulose.
If you are interested in sustainable and ethical fashion, there are plenty of events going on over the summer months which I thought I would share…
