How divine is this old fashioned Camellia that I saw this walking with a friend in an old suburb in Melbourne, a suburb that hasn’t been overtaken by developers, and one that has lovely old gardens, and sweet people who stop for a chat, social distancing of course. . I’m never going to get used of this pandemic, or this virus that has the ability to grow in such an evil, fast, way. Where did this virus come from? Who has such intent to benefit from this? ( and then lie or cover up their evil actions, by banning anyone examining them to find the truth? ) . I believe we must try to get through this, not just social distancing, but by being at home. . I know some people will disagree with this, but our world has changed, and certain parts of the world are showing their true colours, with dominating, evil, violent intent. . We all must live in this world together in harmony. Is this even possible? . Sleep well my friends, try to focus on the good, let’s try to rid our contact and dealings with the countries that seem to want dominance in a selfish self centred way. . . . . . @angelsnstuff #theminimalistwardrobe #slowfashionchallenge #minimalistwardrobe #effortlessfashion #dressinghappy #myfeelgoodfashion #ecofashionista #conciousfashion #slowfashiontips #slowfashionstyle #shopyourcloset #fashionblogger #minimalistwardrobechallenge #concioustyle #secondhandfirst #haveless #neutralstyle #parisienne #paris #rewear #capsulecloset #capsulewardrobe #camellia #camellias #ourworld #ourbeautifulworld #myworld

What do you do when your fashion brand behaves badly? • • • The pandemic has thrown into sharp relief many of the social and environmental issues that have long plagued the fashion industry, from its poor treatment of garment workers to the excessive waste and heavy pollution it produces. #slowfashionbrand #slowclothing #sustainabletextiles #recycledstyle #responsiblestyle #recycleclothes #naturalmaterials #organicfashion #sustainableclothingbrands #sustainableclothingmovement #ethicaltrade #ecodye #slowfashionblogger #slowfashionchallenge #responsiblestyle #slowfashionbrand #techforgood #greenfuture #shopsecondhandfirst #consciousclothing #recycledstyle #upcyclefashion

Hello lovely ones. I’m not only new to #SustainableFashion but also very curious. I’ve spent months digging deeper into any information I find on sustainable fashion & travel, listening to the experts, and attending online discussions with people who are on the same journey. I’m still in kindergarten when it comes to sustainable lifestyle cause there’s so much to learn. This month, I’ll be learning about sustainability in luxury fashion. According to McKinsey’s ‘The State of Fashion’ report, Fashion Players need to take an active stance on social issues, satisfy consumer demands for ultra-transparency and sustainability, and, most importantly, have the courage to “self-disrupt” their own identity and the sources of their old success in order to realise these changes and win new generations of customers.

Plastic Free July challenge starts today, but I wanted to officially finish my slow fashion challenge first. I missed a few days, but last day of the #slowfashionchallenge is dedicated to a personal pledge to slow fashion. By participating in the challenge I was able to learn so many new things about the garment workers, unethical fashion companies, and the huge detrimental impact fast fashion has on communities of color around the world. To actively practice slow fashion I plan on mending the clothing I currently have, making efforts to buy used clothing as much as possible, and seeking out ethical sustainable brands when I can afford them. . . There are several stores opening up right now that are having crazy sales as they try to move “old” product out the door, in many cases this clothing will cost less than purchasing items used. If you need clothing that fits into your budget this could be a good time to buy new. At the end of the day only you know your financial situation, and what’s best for you, slow fashion is not possible for everyone. . . I tried mending one side of my jeans using a sewing machine (shown here )... it turned out ok, I think hand patching would have given them a better look over all... 🤷🏽‍♀️ let me know what you think! . . . . #slowfashionmovement #mending #makedoandmend #mendingmatters #slowmending #upcycle #upcycleclothing #fashrev #ecofashion #consciousfashion #sustainablefashion #fashionrevolution #ehticalfashion #minimalist #blkminimalist #secondhandclothes #secondhandfashion #buysecondhand #zerowaste #lessplastic #reducewaste #secondhandfirst #stopfastfashion #choosereused #doityourself #diyproject #minimalistwardrobe #slowfashionblogger #capsulecloset

Deze jurk! Deze jurk! Ik vind hem zo gaaf. Olifant-wax-print. En 2 grote stroken op het rugpand die op diverse manieren te knopen zijn. Fijne grote 80's zakken! Love it. Hij is gedragen, de stroken waren ietsje ingescheurd, maar dat is gerepareerd en het valt echt niet op. Want: hij is zo gaaf! Gaaf! Gaaf!

De här älskade shortsen var tidigare ett par älskade byxor. Nu hade det blivit ett hål vid ena bakfickan. Eftersom det var jag som sydde om byxorna till shorts förra sommaren hade jag tyg kvar. Med en liten lapp på baksidan och några sömmar med symaskinen fixade jag en ganska osynlig lagning. These beloved shorts used to be beloved trousers. Now there was a rip by one of the back pockets. Since I made the shorts out of the trousers last summer I had some of the fabric left. A patch on the inside and some seams by the sewing machine resulterade in a mostly invisible mend. #lovedclotheslast #mending #lagakläder #mendingisaradicalact #nonewclothes #inganyakläder #slowfashion #slowfashionchallenge #patch #lappaochlaga #invisiblemending #osynliglagning

#slowfashionchallenge ; #pledge Ledstjärnan ⭐️ för min hållbara garderob är att kläderna jag använder ska ha lång livslängd. Det innebär att vårda, laga och använda det jag redan har, att cirkulera genom att köpa second hand, byta, hyra och rensa ut samt att tänka igenom nyköp noggrant. Något annat löfte har jag inte, men detta håller över tid och räcker väldigt långt. Jo, förresten, ett lägger jag till, att njuta av allt vackert och härligt med kläder! 😀 På bilden en slapp T-shirt i okänt, men väldigt skönt material från @kalmarbusfro och fina @houseofdagmar -byxor från @arkivetsthlm , begagnat förstås. Och pledge, löfte var väl ett bra sista ord i slowfashionutmaningen? Har du något löfte eller ledstjärna för garderoben? . #hållbartmode #hållbargarderob #klädvård #lappaochlaga #lagakläder #cirkulera #utmaning #sistaordet #löfte #ledstjärna #secondhandiförstahand #aktiveragarderoben #återälska

I slipped on a dress and heels just to feel "normal" again and you know what, it just felt weird. I've become quite attached to my comfies - 'sweats & a sports bra' is the new 'jeans and a nice top' 😆⁣ ⁣ I haven't worn heels for months, so it was odd to gain a couple of inches in elevation instantly. I bought both the heels and the dress before lockdown and they've been hiding away in my wardrobe patiently waiting for their time to see daylight.⁣ ⁣ Although lockdown is easing in the UK, I'm hesitant to go out so IG photoshoots will have to do! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ . #quarantinestories #quarantinediaries #quarantinemood #quarantinechallenge #quarantinetime #quarantinevibes #quarantinebae #quarantinefashion #quarantined2020 #quarantinetimes #slowfashionblogger #slowfashionstyle #slowfashionseason #slowfashionchallenge #slowfashionsummer #mindfulluxury #forpeoplewithpositiveattitude #buylesschosewell #fashionconscious #emergingdesigner #buylessbutbetter #mindfulcloset #scandifashion #scandinavianbrand #scandinavianfashion #copenhagenfashion

This May I’m taking part in the #slowfashionchallenge because bringing awareness to the consumption of our clothing is something I’m really passionate about. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Day 1 is an introduction. So - who am I? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m Lianne, my friends call me Bell, Belly, Belly bobs or Bell end. I live in Taichung in Taiwan with my dog Baibai (pronounced byebye ) I’ve lived here for 3 years and 我的中文不好 😩 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some stuff about me: - I love house and techno - I’ve been alcohol free for 221 days - I love northern grub; Yorkshire puddings, fish n chips, gravy etc - On my 18th birthday I had my eyebrows shaved off when I passed out at a party. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Looking forward to sharing lots of shit over the next month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Friday 🥳 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: by the wonderful @gonzalobendito

Day 12: jewellery I’d love to share some jewellery that I’ve had as long as my clothes but the reality is that it’s been lost in the abyss. But for the last few months I’ve been saving cool jewellery I come across with the intention of buying it at some point! So thought it’d be good to share my fave ones that are all biofabricated, recycled or custom made. Swipe to see 🥳 1. @scobyworld these beauties are made from homegrown sustainable leather made from bacteria and yeast! They’re still alive so you have to keep them away from water and extreme temperatures. Nature doesn’t get much fuckin cooler than that! 2. @ocean .plastics holy mother of god I think I love these earrings more than my immediate family. They remind me of something you see someone wearing on saved by the bell (super cool 80s show if you’re too young to know ) and the best bit....they’re made from recycled micro plastic found on the beach. 3. @twistedvintagejewellery when I was a teenager I kept all my odd bits of jewellery in a box and always planned to do something like this with them...but I never did. These recycled pieces are made up of old odds and ends and they’re fuckin dribble inducing. 🤤 4. @vitaeliberta who doesn’t want a pair of earrings that say cunt!? You can custom order these bad boys so they say whatever you want and of course you’ll keep them forever. Made to order in NYC and they’re like $60!! Unreal. 5. @cannedgoodsco can you believe this cuff is made from an old tin can? It’s bloody lush. 6. @upturneddesigns some more made from recycled plastic. I’m only buying recycled plastic earrings from now on! Way better for the planet and a million times cooler too. 😎🤘🏻

DAY 1 OF #ShowOffYourCloset 👕 〰️ My top is technically not a top 👀 But a blazer that I love wearing this way, especially as a set. 〰️ The set is secondhand! And it's pretty hard to find a well-fitted suit set secondhand. *Technically, I bought it from a friend which is still another great "shopping" sustainable option* 😉 〰️ Jewelry - from a Toronto-based vintage shop, Courage My Love, @sarahsilver_ , @spiritofvera , and a London flea market Phone case by @pelacase 〰️ Excited for the next days and I'll try to keep up with the challenge!

Today’s #slowfashionchallenge theme is locally made - a perfect opportunity to highlight the hidden gem of mending and repairs, the cordonnerie (shoe cobbler )! In Paris you can find a cordonnière on every other street, a service that I was not used to before moving to France. Before, my relationship with my shoes was linear. Buy, wear, throw. My shoes had whatever lifespan the quality allowed for, and I tragically threw away many beloved pairs. The great news is that there are local shoe cobblers everywhere. You might have to look a little harder if you’re in America, but it is absolutely worth it. A local service, that will undoubtedly help you keep your shoes longer ➡️ that is #slowfashion ! Changing seasons are a great time to bring winter boots and shoes to have them mended so by next Fall they are good as new. Also, shoe repairs are quite affordable so the investment is worth it!

Yesterday was A DAY AND A HALF - I was shaking like a leaf🌿 with a smidge of anxiety but mostly excitement the whole way through - because all the new @nightire stock FINALLY arrived (pictured here with an Aperol in hand as I needed some liquid courage last night to get through all the unpacking😉 ) and the orders came pouring in from folks eager to get their hands on fresh jaams, so today I’m spending much of my time lovingly packaging these beauties back up again💫 This #entrepreneurlife sure is a rollercoaster.

Hey, I'm back in a tada pose for Days 9, 10 & 11 for the #slowfashionchallenge @slowfashionchallenge 9. Slow fashion story: While I was in university I worked at an "outdoor fashion park" (MALL ) at #luckybrandjeans It was there unpacking shipment where one day I found a note in the box written in a language that I couldn't read. I pulled it out showed my manager and he proceeded to tell me of the multiple notes he and his coworkers had found while he was employed at #abercrombieandfitch . One of those notes clearly said, "help me". Months later I was working at another small local shop unpacking Christmas ornaments in the middle of July. I had been doing this all day, one after another ornament wrapped in newspaper with writing in letters I didn't understand. I pulled one out and there, suck in the glue holding it together were strands of long black hair. Next thing I knew I couldn't breathe properly and I thought there was something wrong with my heart. Turns out that was my first ever panic attack. Some might think this was an over reaction, but at that point the combination of what I was learning in school, in my own research, and then right there in front of me had become too much. My imagination had filled in the blanks. There has been an insatiable need in the West (and now the East too ) for cheap clothing in this equation the planet loses, but so do it's people. I don't want to feed in to a cycle of consumerism that supports slave labor. An article in the New York Times from December 2019 cited factories in Los Angeles paying workers as low as $2.77 an hour. How else do you think you get a shirt for $15. A sandwich costs $15 these days. That doesn't make sense! We have the ability to choose to spend our money on things that we know how and where they were made. Day 10 Tip: My tip is to make sure there is an about section for the brand you're considering buying something new from, look for supply chain transparency. Consider the pricing, if it looks like a rat and smells like a rat... Day 11: Waste. Another reason to consider what your clothing is made of. Could you throw it in the compost? How long would it take to return to the soil? Cont. Below

The materials we were on our bodies have a profound social impact on the people in the fashion supply chain. In Tamil Nadu, the Indian capital of cotton production, demand for cheap cotton from big brands has important consequences for the hundreds of thousands of workers turning the raw fibers into finished textiles. There have been many reports about poor working conditions and examples of forced labor, where workers are recruited from rural areas with promises of decent work. A SOMO (center for research on multinational corporations ) report writes that recruiters convince parents in impoverished rural areas to send their daughters to the spinning mills with promises of a well-paid job, three meals a day and opportunities for training and schooling, as well as a lump sum payments at the end of three years. However, when the girls arrive at the mills, it turns out that the reality of their new working life is not so attractive. The prevalence of this reality in South Indian spinning mills relies on brand’s lack of supply chain transparency. Without the knowledge of where brands obtain their fabrics, little can be done to protect the vulnerable workers in these facilities. We must demand a fashion industry with as much visibility of the supply chain, as of the clothes on the runways.
