hello danny, so nice to hear from you! I'm sorry it took me so long to leave a reply: I've been very busy starting 2(!) new jobs..

Thank you for reading my thesis. I have tried to make a sort of overview of the sustainable fashion industry and to point to its strenghts and weaknesses...unfortuanatly there was no time to study the subject more. I was actually hoping to do so after my graduation in my work, which is sort of happening: I recently started at Fair Wear Foundation. I think the sustainable fashion industry in the Netherlands is rapidly growing: more and more designers are foccussing on the subject, there is an annual Green Fashion Competion and 'consumers' are demanding it more often (at least I am:)). This is of course also subjective: it totally depends on the industry/environment you're in yourself. I also know people who do not care at all, and even do not know what I'm talking about. But in general I think it is a subject that is - also in the Netherlands - becoming more and more essential for designers to focus on.

Are you planning on moving your business to the Netherlands?

 

Regards, Lisa

Hi Danny,

Thanks for connecting with me, being new it's great to start making friends on the site. Also thanks for the invite for this Saturday. I would love to have joined you and connected with all the like minded people but i have a major family wedding on that day (a crazy indian wedding to be exact ;) so won't be able to make it. If you can i'd love for you to keep me in the loop for any other future events!!

 

Warmest regrads

Yamini

 

p.s. Love you're denim!! I've also worked with denim in the past, customizing and re-inventing, it's a great fabric and love what you're doing with it.

Thanks Danny for the feed back. It's the same here too. Retail is very down which has impacted on our business a lot.
I hope the world economy picks up but in a way it's better for the planet as we are buying less which of course means less pollution and waste! 
Have a fun week Kelli

Thanks Danny :)
Is the Uk market still down after the global economic crisis?
Do you know any good shops we could approach?
Have a good week
Kelli :)
