Fashion for Good Launch

Twelve years ago, I read the book Cradle to Cradle (C2C) while traveling around the US and Europe to befriend the handful of pioneers in sustainable fashion. At the time, my friend Annouk Post (http://www.annoukpost.com/) and I were in the process of setting up and running the very first sustainable fashion store (http://www.ecofashionworld.com/Kim/Ode-to-Annouk.html) in The Netherlands.

Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2016

With over 1,200 participants, the Copenhagen Fashion Summit is undoubtedly one of the world's largest events on sustainability in fashion. It is a nonprofit event organized by Danish Fashion Institute on behalf of Nordic Fashion Association. The Summit was first held in 2009 during the UN Climate Change Conference – COP15 – in Copenhagen, and again in spring 2012 and 2014. On May 12, 2016, 9am - 6pm, the Fashion Summit will once again gather international key players from the fashion industry, as well as experts, NGOs, opinion makers, media and politicians, at the Copenhagen Concert Hall to discuss the evolution of a successful fashion industry in a world where new business models are required to tackle the growing sustainability challenges facing the planet and our societies.

Natural Beauty Product Must-haves

The movement toward more natural, chemical-free, ethically-made products is becoming more and more widespread. The beauty industry is riddled with products filled with cheap, toxic and ineffective ingredients. The task to find products that are healthy to use, actually work, and are affordable, can be grossly discouraging. We are here to take some of the guess-work out of finding a natural beauty regimen that works for you. Here are a few of our tried-tested-and-loved favorites.

Eco Fashion Week Vancouver, 10th Ed. Highlights

Prophetik by Jeff Garner Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver has wrapped up its 10th edition with international designers, nationally streamed panel discussions and a final runway show erupting in a full audience dance party on the runway. Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver hosts a large community of conscious professionals and admirers alike, but this year there was an added presence of fashion industry professionals and known attendees of general fashion industry events at the events every night. This is what it is about... spreading awareness and inspiring action to collectively perpetuate a healthier fashion industry.

Global Sustainable Fashion Week in Budapest, Hungary

The first Global Sustainable Fashion Week to be held in Budapest, Hungary begins tomorrow April 12 through April 14. This is a unique event combining an international conference, workshops, displays and fashion shows in sustainable and ethical fashion.

Eco Fashion Week Vancouver, 10th Edition

Celebrating its 10th season, Eco Fashion Week is informing and inspiring the fashion-conscious, and sustainable-minded, alike, in a way that harmonizes beauty and the environment. After all, innovation in fashion is inextricably linked to innovation in sustainability.

UncommonGoods: Beautiful, Unique, Sustainable Gift-giving

In 1999, Dave Bolotsky visited a Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C. and was fascinated by the variety of unique handmade goods and the talented people who created them. He saw a significant demand for beautiful design and quality products. He also realized the artists who created the pieces were often traveling great distances in order to sell their designs at the show. Inspired by his experience, Dave had a vision to create an online marketplace to connect makers and their creations with individuals looking for truly special goods, regardless of the physical distance between the maker and the shopper. Dave turned this idea into UncommonGoods, an online marketplace brimming with unique products, which meet the highest standards for design and social responsibility.

ABURY Holds 2nd Edition of Design Experience

Following the huge success of last year’s first edition, ABURY and Harper's Bazaar Germany present the second edition of the Sustainable Global Accessories Design Contest for international emerging designers. ABURY, the Berlin based fashion label that focuses on creative skills that inspire change has announced its latest open call. The 2016 ABURY Design Experience presented by Harper’s Bazaar opened the online application for emerging designers from the 14th of February on adex.abury.net (http://adex.abury.net/).

Rose & Willard: Empowering, Sustainable, Ethical Elegance from Great Britain

Only 60 years ago, women were mostly wearing aprons and impractical cocktail dresses. Once they began competing for jobs traditionally held by men - politicians, judges, stock brokers, CEOs - women had to come up with wardrobes that would communicate their reliability, skills, professionalism, and ability to get the job done as well as their male counterparts. In the workplace, men had suits that inspired respect, power and trust. What did women have? Forced to prove themselves in a male-dominated, gender-biased world which, to this day, still operates under the unspoken rules of glass ceilings, sexism, unequal pay and hiring criteria, women often found themselves losing their own sense of identity and femininity, and ended up adopting more and more of the masculine style, appearance, and character traits. Heidy Rehman, founder of Rose Willard, a British ‘feminist’ fashion brand that offers career women uniquely feminine, luxurious, elegant, refined, high quality, versatile, and ethical womenswear, shared her insights about her experience and vision with EFW.

Themis and Thread: Natural Dyeing with Marigolds

EFW member, Themis and Thread, did a complete study on Marigolds this past Fall, to experiment with non-toxic natural dyeing methods and steam printing, to develop a new textile. They have dubbed the process Heavy Petal and they have been so generous in sharing the process with us, along with a more basic process you can try at home!

Does your Ethical Fashion Online Store have an affiliate program?

Posted on August 14, 2009 at 17:26 0 Comments

Affiliate systems are one of the best ways of increasing sales on you online store. They are systems that track "referrals' to your e-commerce website from other sites, and reward the sites that send you customers by giving them a percentage of the sales profit. IF you have great products, these systems have the potential to increase your sales many many times over.
