I’m Charlotte, I live in Bristol, UK and I work as a costume designers assistant. Since starting to become interested in fashion from the age of maybe 12/ 13 clothes have been a huge part of my life. Since writing my dissertation on the subject at University I have been an advocate for shopping mindfully – to be conscious of the people who make our clothes and the impact they have on the planet.
However, I am still a huge fan of fashion, style, costume and clothes in general and would love to find ways to shop ethically and sustainably but without compromising on aesthetics!
- Everybody cares on some level but making sustainable and ethical choices isn’t always easy, accessible or affordable.
- If we can all make at least one more ‘mindful’ purchase or change in our habits then we can make a difference.
- ‘thinking before buying’ – Do I need it? or Do I love it? and if the answer is NO to both then don’t buy it!
This is where this blog comes in – finding clothes and accessories that have an emphasis on STYLE and great aesthetics which also happen to be sustainable and/or ethical. Hopefully making it easier to make those choices as you won’t need to hunt too far.
I have also decided to start an index of all the great companies I find to try and make it easier to find sustainable and ethical options, so if that interests you it can be found here.
(Please note though I will try to keep it UK based).
Thanks for reading and please feel free to get in touch, tip me off about something or someone I should know about, to discuss ideas or just to say hello!
