We need to start shopping better to make the fashion industry listen. There are some really simple ways to start choosing sustainable fashion over the mass-produced. Here's a quick look at two niche sectors that are growing considerably in sustainable options...
I want to be proud of what I represent (clothes are your mirror, a part of your personality), and I want to be sure I am not supporting slavery. I don't want my cheap fashion to be someone else's worst nightmare.
For a while, the word "wearable" was the exclusive domain of compulsive exercise fiends who didn't think LiveStrong bands made enough of a statement. But a new breed of wearable - in the form of technology-integrated-clothing - is now threatening to invade our wardrobes.
Here's a brutal truth that no hipster will ever admit: festival dressing is tricky. You see, the aim is to appear all nonchalant and cool whilst secretly planning and packing for days in advance, streamlining your essential kit into one 'oh, dunno', type bag. And it can total really quite a hefty stash even without all this batsh*t "British Summer" weather we've got going on right now.
There is no datum on mannequins - no system for sizing and no standard approach to it across the industry. When creating clothing, we have anatomical landmarks (nape to waist, for example) but the way this is measured is still variable. Paul is determined to standardise measurement taking and sizing to put an end to what is a slow, laborious and repetitive process.

If you're looking for an edgy and fresh finish to your look, then you certainly should consider pouncing for a pocket square. An absolute essential for modern men and their growing fashion tastes, even the simplest of squares can surge your style to never before seen heights.

The rise of brief trends over classic style and shoddy workmanship at cheap prices in the fashion industry is damaging both our planet and its people. I'm a 25 year old designer and I wanted to share with you the story of how a t-shirt could be what's needed to engage the mass market with sustainable fashion.
Let it be known that adaptogens are coming to the UK big time. Their popularity is going to be bigger than spirulina... bigger than kale even, because ancient herbal wisdom is back in business baby!
Words can inspire, empower, motivate, lift your spirits and give you joy and happiness. Equally, words can make you feel useless, anxious, depressed, not worthy, hurt and lower your self-esteem. Words Make. Works Break. Words are like a magical powder or a deadly potion.
No-one has yet designed a bag that does it all. You can, however, boil your collection down to around 3 styles, budget permitting and leaving aside performance equipment or functional stuff like rolling luggage...
I'm now the proud owner of a Lyfe watch with a green strap and I can honestly say that after years of not wearing a watch I have started using it regularly. It looks good, functions well, and I can see that the Lyfe team are focused on making this a global fashion brand.
