I’m starting the ‘good fashion’ side of Sewrendipity with a link to a very interesting Sustainable Fashion blog by the Yarina (@theyarina on Twitter). Here’s a post that delivers a great comparison of sustainable fashion vs ethical fashion, while demystifying both concepts.
As I was explaining here, I am doing a fashion detox (no more new clothes) in 2015, looking to make all my own clothes. However, as I am learning more about sustainable and ethical fashion, I am looking to make more educated choices when I do end up buying new clothes. Regardless if I will find out at the end of 2015 that swearing off retail is a doable task or not, I do hope to emerge out of this exercise knowing more about what to buy so that my fashion choices don’t affect the planet or the people who make the clothes that I buy and I can perhaps even start influencing the industry in a very small way.
Happy sustainable journey!
