New designers, sources of ethical fabric, maufactures in the UK, stockist for Knock on the Door
About me / About business or organisation:
I run an ethical fashion brand called Knock on the Door. We head hunt emerging designers, often recent graduates, and commission them to develop a capsule collection exclusively for Knock on the Door. We then produce the collection using ethical fabrics and UK manufacturers, however the range is sold under the designers name.
The concept behind our brand is to create a platform for talented designers to launch their career, and in turn these future stars provide an injection of style and creativity into the eco clothing market.
Career history / Company history:
I studied fashion design at Leeds University. As part of my course I spent a year in London where I gained a 9 month work placement with the River Island Press Office. My main role was to liaise with journalists and provide them with clothes to feature in their magazine/newspaper. I also worked with the fashion team at Company magazine where I assisted in organising the clothes for photo shoots.

My name is Laricea Ioana Roman and I am a student at Kingston University, London (KU ID 0942659). I am doing a Master in Marketing, Advertising and Communications and at the moment I am writing my Dissertation. My topic is related to ethical clothing, more specifically, I am investigating how personal values influence customers' decision to buy ethical clothing. In order to come up with some answers for my topic, I need some opinions from people who actually bought ethical clothes.
