Following on from the success of the last 2 Ethical outfit competitions, I have decided to make these competitions a regular event. It is fantastic to see how bloggers are wearing ethical and sustainable fashion and I hope that these outfits will inspire others to give ethical/ sustainable fashion a try too. The competition is open to any UK fashion blogger, your outfit just needs to include at least one ethical or sustainable item which include anything organic, made from sustainable fabrics, fair trade, vintage, recycled or second hand. you can find out more on how to enter below, but first I wanted to tell you about the fantastic prizes!
