Over the last few years I’ve had this itch inside of me to start a blog and write about the one thing I have always been passionate about~ fashion. Its cliche, yah I know another fashion blog but it’s the truth, I wanted to create a space that was all my own and to talk about the things that excite me the most about this industry. I love thoughtful, interesting design and the process in its entirety from conception to final product. I really love fashion styling and its endless possibilities and how you can change a look with different accessories and items. I love tailoring, interesting cuts and the techniques behind them. I love when clothes are reworn over and over again, creating looks different from the last simply because the items themselves are special and unique.
But with fashion today and the problems our planet faces we as consumers purely have to be aware. We have a responsibility to future generations. We also have a responsibility to those who currently make our clothes and shoes and accessories and we have to be more ethical in our choices and how we choose to dress ourselves every morning. I believe it is important to consider carefully the supply chain of the product being purchased. I have started to ask myself ‘who made this?’, ‘were they paid a livable wage?’, ‘are these materials sustainable?’, ‘how resource intensive was it to produce this product?’, ‘how will I wear this and do I need it?’, and ‘will this item bring me joy?’. This is the direction I wish to take on my blogging journey, to show you how I incorporate a more thoughtful and sustainable approach to my wardrobe and style.
So what’s my promise to you? Well, I’ll do my best to highlight brands that are ethical and working toward sustainability and propelling the industry forward through innovation. Fashion has a significant impact on communities around the world and one of the most sustainable thing we can do is to take care of the clothes we love, buy and wear vintage, mend and repair our clothes and to resale or donate our clothes to those in need. It’s not going to be easy but we have to start somewhere and the more information we have the better in making the right decisions. This is so important now more than ever because it is literally as simple as it is a matter of life or death.
Hope you join me on this journey and become more informed together.
