How you can help make sustainable fashion more affordable

The fashion industry is probably the most followed and preferred industry for people across the world after food. It fulfills one of the most important necessities. The industry has a valuation of USD3 trillion parallel to the 7th biggest economy. It employs more than 300 million employees and workers. But it has a bad impact on our environment. Constantly looking for cheap and easy manufacturing processes has landed us into big trouble. It impacts our environment negatively by putting our ecosystem on huge stress.  This is where sustainable clothing is the best chance to revive our environment and give our...

What Does It Really Cost To Make Our Clothes?

There is a price paradox when it comes to buying clothes — sustainable wears are costlier owing to their quality of make and material whereas cheap fast fashion is available at a fraction of the cost but comes at a high price for the environment and sweat shops that make it.  For the consumer that’s been accustomed to purchasing clothes at a bargain or reasonable rate, the only way to justify an expensive and more sustainable wear is through transparency. Today, the average shopper has become more aware and transparency has become an important issue with growing concerns about issues...

RIP Fashion Week: Digital Runways Are Here To Take Over

The glamour of fashion weeks, street style and front rows simply cannot exist in a world where we have to socially-distance ourselves for a period that seems indefinite. In retrospect, keeping the carbon emissions, biannual shows across the four fashion capitals and age old seasonal calendar in mind, it was apparent that fashion weeks were long overdue for an overhaul. Fortunately, Covid-19 has been the harbinger of a new digital revolution for the industry — one that is here to stay in perpetuity.  Earlier this month, the Business of Fashion brought forth a proposal to rewire the fashion system around...

What We Can Learn From Panic Grocery Runs In The Times Of Covid-19

“Panic buying” has unfortunately become a huge issue ever since lockdown began globally in March; from supermarket shelves being stripped of toilet paper rolls to hand sanitisers running out of stock. Picking up 2 of each one of your essentials during your average monthly grocery run was always the norm but when that number multiplies to more than x3 per family with 8 out of 10 buyers participating in the same habit, then that practice is considered socially irresponsible.  When lockdown began, products such as pasta, toilet paper and orange juice were a popular choice on most grocery lists —...

Sustainability is not only an option but a mandatory lifestyle change that we have to comply with.

Fashion trends are periodic, styles from an era always manage to make a comeback annually whether it's the early aughts, retro ’60s or punk ’80s. Nostalgia is comforting, as are the clothes we live in so its no wonder that we constantly recycle the decades gone by.

Trend Alert: Ruched Romance

Textures have the unique ability to add both definition and flounce to a garment. Techniques of ruching, smocking and shirring hark back to the Victorian era where the sleeves, bustiers or bustles of dresses were filled with an abundance of ruching. Today, these humble forms of texturing are still added to women’s clothing that allude to the feminine form and embrace an air of romance.  There’s no better a season than spring to embrace all things romantic and breezy. Even the simplest solid coloured top with a demure silhouette and dainty details can not only switch up your look but...

Can we make fast fashion sustainable?

After major setbacks in the last year and in the beginning of the year 2020, even the least bothered or less aware section of society will be pushed to make conscious choices when it comes to buying sustainable clothing. Even though the devastating damage has been done for decades, the results can be clearly seen today.  In the past, people never thought of the harm that was caused by exploiting the resources while manufacturing a clothing item. If the repercussions were investigated and revealed a couple of years ago to the large consuming population, the desolation would have seen another...

How to be more sustainable by selling, donating and recycling your old clothes

COVID-19 has given us more time to be home and for many of us, this means tidying up! For people who have had a comfortable life, the wardrobe they see now could be a surprise, even to them. It’s in our nature to buy clothes and forget about them after a couple of uses. That’s what the show “tidying up with Marie Kondo” is about if you have been binge-watching Netflix.

As with any other forward-thinking industry, fashion businesses across the globe have been adapting to the changing needs of the world. The push towards sustainability is nothing new and with climate change and global warming becoming severely apparent, there have been changes in both the consumer and supplier front. Before COVID-19, there had been encouraging steps towards sustainable clothing, with top fashion brands leaning towards materials and manufacturing that are eco-friendly and put the minimum pressure on natural resources.

Caution: Greenwashing Ahead!

From food to toiletries and now even the fashion industry, it seems as though labelling something as “eco-friendly” automatically makes it a hot ticket item. A tried and tested formula that consumers seem to easily fall prey to while only the brands that actually walk the talk of sustainability know what really goes into marking something as green. Which is why, one can’t help but wonder what greenwashing really is and how do we become more wary of it?

Fast fashion was the in thing and brands like H&M, Forever 21 and Zara were just starting to become extremely popular amongst young teens and young adults.

How Brands Are Leveraging Sustainability Claims Through Certifications
