As you all know, last month we had the privilege of being invited to showcase our collection at Brighton Fashion Week, the only UK and European Fashion Week for Ethical and Sustainable design and oh my, was it a show of all of shows.
Firstly, being surrounded by so many people who share the same value structure when it comes to fashion business is a blessing and secondly finding out all the different ways ethical fashion can be tackled is an enlightening experience.
Kitty Ferreira is heading over ( virtually) to Australia to be a part of The Helm’s #stylewithsubstance two day event, discussing the rise of Slow Fashion, alongside Fashion Revolution and industry influencers.

I was very excited to be invited to attend The Observer Ethical Awards, held at The V & A Museum, London and little did I know Lucy Siegle, ethical fashion & lifestyle writer for The Guardian, would be hosting the evening wearing our very own Inky Dress made from peace silk and azo-free dyes- and at what a time too- The Observer Ethical Awards was celebrating its 10th birthday!
