Hello Lisa,

 

Working for the fairwear foundation sounds very cool! I'm stuck in an office job at the moment and severely miss practising designing and making... i am in the process of applying for a teaching position.. it's my dream teaching job - fashion & costume and its not far from where I live. If I'm not successful though I've got some other plans... mainly escaping the UK for a while. My friends sister lives in Tilburg so I might start there, I want to supply Upclycled clothing and accessories to a few cool shops then see if I can develop some sustainable workshops, exhibit some show pieces..  I've got plenty of ideas but not loadsa money so its a case of saving up and finding a job!! do you know of any clothes shops where you are that sell Mens / Womens contemporary fashion / Ethical fashion where you are? Or is there a good market scene like camden in london with independant designers? I will have a look at the green fashion competition too..

 

I think what you said about the awareness of ethical/sustainable issues in fashion are limited in some places, where there is no choice and not a high income there will always be mass consumption as the markets are sewn up years in advance.. it is very similar to organic food, or free range eggs, people will not care until they have to make a serious moral choice. Greenwashing is another problem.. a token gesture of big labels such as levi's producing one pair of 'Eco' jeans and selling 30 options that are not.. it is everywhere. BUT.. at least there's some folk who are bothered. like you . and many more on this network.

 

What is it like working for FWR F? lots of travelling? .Bet it's exciting!

 

Hope to hear from you soon,.  Danny

Hey Lisa,

 

I like what you've written, some interesting points. It really make me want to find out more about the ethical designers in holland and the impact of sustainable fashion education on graduates.

 

Having followed Fashioning an Ethical industry for several years, the content you have put forward has been discussed throughout Britain and it is good to see that Dutch companies / ngo's are at the front of championing sustainable practice within the fashion industry.

 

Are there many communitites of fashion designers and textile artists who develop their own sustainable fashion? such as co-operatives of independant designers. Your writing covers the big topics and looks at the big questions, but there is so much to write about with Sustainable fashion.. are you looking further into the topic?

 

this is something I'm really interested in., the market for independant designers is pretty London Centric.. not a lot of customers are looking for sustainable fashion / art when the high streets are full of cheap clothes. What is the reception like in holland for unique / sustainable clothing?

 

Thanks Danny : )
