Fashion and Sustainability
Innovative fabric, in the modern era, means looking at finding ways to make fashion more sustainable and ethical. Every industry is looking to create with as little waste and environmental impact as possible, and the fashion industry is no different. Textile waste is a serious issue, and fashion designers/brands who focus on limiting their use of natural resources and making products that are built to last. Here are 3 brands doing just that, with the kind of chic that won’t be going out of style any time soon.
The new autumn range is equal parts flirty animal-print dresses, chic caftans and lavender suede trousers, with celebrity fans like Emma Watson, Naomi Watts and Gwyneth Paltrow. Designers like Chelsea Healy aim to be purposeful in all processes, aiming to be more sustainable and creative in one tidy package. Their focus is on bringing sustainability to the mainstream with “boldly subtle, eclectic, clean and feminine” aesthetic.
Handmade, natural fabrications of silk, cotton and linen leftovers make up this Instagram-based brand, supported by fans like Emily Ratajkowski and Leandra Medine, summoning the aura of the French countryside for some delicate touches. They don’t focus on seasonal ranges, opting to work with the fabrics they find to create unique, timeless pieces. The designers are rebelling against mass-production to show everyone a better way to consume. Authenticity and personality are at the heart of their work
Gosia Piatek’s fashion label is one of the chic sustainable clothing trailblazers. Cotton is carefully farmed in sustainable ways, and every detail of the clothing keeps sustainability in mind. The vibe is a minimalist look with pretty bursts of colour Piatek loves to inject. She describes the aesthetic as “utilitarian, minimal and understated femininity”, and her passion for being eco-friendly borders on the obsessive!
Innovation in fashion and fabrics is primarily geared towards a green outlook, with sustainability at the forefront. These are just three of many brands that are breaking new ground in this venture, and they could make great additions to your wardrobe for the foreseeable future.
