Conscious A/W 2014/15 Edit (Women)10 Oct 2014
|top by HOWL (see full picture below)|
With all the S/S 2015 Fashion Weeks out of the way, I felt it was time to focus back onto the current season and compile a small A/W 2014/15 edit for our female readers - ladies first gents, it'll be your turn next, so don't worry, we haven't forgotten about you!
To make life easier for everyone, I tried to describe as briefly as possible, why each item is eco-friendly/ethical. In any case, it'll be well worth your time to find out more about the sustainability of your favourite items and the brands behind them, visiting their websites. I personally find there's always something new that can be learned from doing so and helps you to make better informed descisions when buying clothes in the future.
Con todas las Semanas de la Moda para la próxima primavera y verano, he pensado que ya era hora de centrarse de nuevo en esta temporada y agrupar una pequeña edición para este otoño/invierno para nuestras lectoras - Ladies first! Caballeros, pronto será vuestro turno, ¡no nos hemos olvidado de vosotros!
Para haceros la vida más fácil, he intentado explicar de la manera más breve posible, qué caracteriza una prenda como ecológica o ética. Sin embargo, os recomiendo que os toméis la molestia de leer sobre la sostenibilidad de vuestros productos y las empresas que los fabrican en su propia pagina web, siempre se puede aprender algo nuevo haciendo eso y nos ayuda en nuestras futuras compras.
