Toward the end of 2016, we had great pleasure in meeting the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, bringing more awareness to sustainable & ethical fashion whilst moving into a new studio where we are implementing our social enterprise plans to bring local skills to local people.
Meeting the Mayor London, Sadiq Khan, bringing awareness to sustainable and ethical fashion
“I had happily discovered ethically sourced silk recently and was able to create a look that doesn’t take too much space in the luggage and is p.e.r.f.e.c.t for hot weather.”
Natasha Taneka, NGO and author of Trusted Clothes guest blogs on the merits of packing light and wearing silk ( organic & cruelty- free, thank you), in hot climates. Pictured wearing our African Print Blouse in Singapore
AWARENESS of ethically made fashion is growing; a better understanding of #whomademyclothes, a will to avoid companies who use sweatshops and who do not pay farmers enough for apparel crops. So when ready to buy ethical fashion, what are the options?

Wondering whether she considers wearing British made ethical and sustainable fashion…
Fashion Revolution is a week to commemorate the Bangladeshi Rana Plaza factory disaster 24th April 2013, where over 1000 workers lost their lives making garments for some of the biggest names on our high streets. Every year since, fashionrevolution.org hosts a series of events around the world, from lectures and workshops to fashion shows and pop up events to bring to our attention the effects of fast fashion supply chains on people and the planet. #whomadeyourclothes.
This year, however, fast fashion retailer H&M launches World Recycling Week during the same week. Nothing wrong with that you might ask…..
We’ve been invited to take part in #BestofBritish fashion event in LA as part of Moda 360, 4-5th April 2016.
Address: The New Mart, 127 E. 9th Street, 3rd Floor, Los Angeles.
Highlighting our British made ethical fashion, Kitty Ferreira will be showcasing alongside a handful of selected British brands, including a trunk show, sample sale and a screening of the True Cost movie.
Check out the event in real time on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with #BestofBritish and view all details of the event here.

We partnered up with a US content creation firm, to bring you the latest story behind our ethical fashion.
It’s all about the silk worm.
Did you know between 40-50,000 silk worms are boiled alive to make just one silk blouse on the high street?
Not many people do…. The larvae needs two weeks in their cocoon feeding off the silk inside leaving only half as much silk by the time they are ready to break free and fly off as moths. It is before this process begins that fast fashion and mainstream silk producers choose to by pass ethics and kill the silkworms instead, keeping their cocoons intact. It also means that it takes longer to weave the broken silk fibres and is thus a more expensive process, but it is more respectful to nature.

A couple of months ago I was invited to a live Q&A by University of the Arts, London College of Communication BA students, to shed some light on sustainable and ethical fashion, about the Kitty Ferreira brand and how they can influence communications in the sustainable business world.
