Ethical Fashion Event Edinburgh: Fashion Revolution Week 2017

As I write this, I’ve just come back from the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI) after an insanely eventful event all about celebrating all things ethical fashion during Fashion Revolution Week with Colour Elements, at which I spoke on a panel of experts after a film screening of Slowing Down Fast Fashion. This picture shows one of the Scottish sustainable fashion brands that showcased at the night, Cloh, a new contemporary menswear label that utilizes quality re-purposed textiles, like ‘linen’ made from plastic bottles used to make stunning oversized shirts.

Stella & Dot Summer Collection

stella and dot jewellery   Stella & Dot is a New York based accessories brand selling through their website and through freelance stylists and trunk shows.

The Shore is probably on of my favourite places in Edinburgh. Beautiful modern buildings and amazing pubs and restaurants overlook the Water of Leith and the whole place looks like a mini Amsterdam. I had a great time shooting this outfit with Lyndsey from Edinburgh lifestyle blog The Quiet Resolution This was probably the first time in 2017 I’ve worn a dress without tights because Scotland is cold as hell. Looking at my pale legs you can also see why I usually choose to cover up in black! Scroll to the bottom to shop the look, which features Mandi Candi Boutique and Stella & Dot. I hope you enjoy!

For the first time in history, a pair of jeans can cost you less than the price of a sandwich, and you can buy them from the same shop too. In a culture of supermarket fashion, we have become so far detached geographically and mentally from the people who make our clothes that we have forgot how much it actually costs to make them. The images in this post are from my latest ethical fashion obsession, Studio Five.
