Today I wanted to share Here Today, Here Tommorrow, a brand whose name sums up just what I think clothes and fashion should be about. This for me is not just about building a sustainable wardrobe (one that will stand the test of time in terms of both style and quality) but also about sustainability for the environment and the livelihoods of those involved in the supply chain. I want it all to be be ‘here today and here tommorrow!’
In keeping with the principles of slow fashion and sustainability, Here Today, Here Tommorrow not only sell their own range of Fairtrade clothing but also run a variety of workshops including knitting,sewing and natural dying. Here Today, Gone Tommorrow is a collaborative studio shop, where they design, make, mend, showcase, sell and educate, all under the same roof, accessible and visible to all. If you can’t get over to Dalston in North London for a visit, you can also check out the online shop here.
They have some great fairtrade, handwoven aprons and oven gloves which would definitely bring out the domestic goddess in me (if there is one!).
They also stock some great pieces by Antiform. Made in Britain from reclaimed fabric.
The brand was set up by four ladies Anna Marie Hesse, Emma Dulcie Rigby, Katelyn Toth-Fejel, Julia Crew and Ines Vicente, each with their own unique experience in a variety of sustainable fashion ventures. They have a holistic approach to sustainability and believe that there is no such thing as one size fits all.
As designers they are concerned by the disposable and throw away nature of fashion, and within society as a whole. They try to address the environmental and social impacts of thoughtless production and consumption. They strive to make high quality, beautiful products that address a range of sustainable and ethical practices, including handmade craftsmanship, locality, durability, recycling, natural dye, organic materials, fair trade, individuality and transparency of production.
