Event : London’s Sustainable Fashion Conference

Today I am attending a conference at the University of the Arts, London, named From Awareness to Action. The talks will be on the subject of sustainable fashion and I’m looking forward to lots of learning and hopefully some networking. Responsable Fashion is a tricky subject, especially as we seem to be seeing things go in the opposite direction : Zara’s 14 collections a year definitely don’t encourage sustainability ! Practicing DIY and being creative with fashion is definitely a good start to becoming fashionably responsible and I hope this blog helps those of you who are interested in sustainable fashion to find alternatives to constant retail therapy whilst feeding your love for clothes ! Seeing how quickly H&M sold out of most of their new Conscious Collection, it seems people are more and more interested in shopping green. Good news : )

I know this isn’t the kind of thing I usually talk about on here but for those of you who are interested, this is a great video produced by EJF – one of the speakers taking part in today’s conference.
