So we are in October already! Where does the time go? Whilst I am not a big fan of the cold weather, I have to admit I do enjoy cosying up in front of the TV and cooking up comfort food at this time of year especially after such a busy summer. I have also been catching up on some of my favourite blogs and am delighted to share with you some of the sustainable and ethical fashion highlights.
It was lovely to see Ronnie from Dresses on a clothes line featured in the video of the AW14 People Tree collection (above). You can also check out her post Fly Me To the Moon to see some of the photos and read about the photo shoot. It looks like that moon print is proving popular!
I was pleased to discover ethical and British made fashion in the form of minimalist label Rikya over on Kingdom of Style. The latest collection takes inspiration from 90’s hip hop, tomboys and skater Peggy Oki. You can check out the post here.
Over on City Girl at Heart, there is a lovely giveaway and interview with creative concept store, Confined Space which features the latest in independent and sustainable design with some amazing ethical fashion.
At Morale Fibres, the latest your style interview features Kayleigh Innes of Wonderchebs. Check it out for some great ethical shopping tips.
On the Oxfam Fashion blog, Katie Cliss gives her charity shopping tips for a cosy autumn and winter.
I have recently launched an offers and discounts page here to share with you some of the lovely savings for ethical and sustainable fashion brands.
The Ethical Fashion Bloggers relaunch!
I have been noticing a growing number of bloggers posting about ethical and sustainable fashion and style and I have decided that I really ought to get the Ethical Fashion Bloggers community up and going again. The community was incredibly popular but I just ran out of time and energy to keep it up to date so it has been a little quiet of late. However I have now decided to start again with a renewed focus to create a vibrant community of bloggers who love fashion and clothes but want to minimise their impact on the planet and don’t want to compromise their ethics. If you would like to find out more check out the blog www.ethicalfashionbloggers.com and if you would like to join the fun, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. I would also love to here from any bloggers who would like to write a guest post about their style, ethical shopping tips or favourite ethical brand.
That’s it for now, except that I am hoping to arrange a bloggers meet up for a vintage fair and afternoon tea in Bath on 30th November. So if you would like to come along, please pencil it in the diary. I will post more information soon.
Have a lovely October!
With warmest wishes
