I'm looking to set up a fashion label so my big need at the moment is that i'm looking for fabric suppliers, trim supliers and printers and Dyers. I have manufactures it the uk but would bbe really interested to hear of fair trade manufacturers in the far east also.
About me / About business or organisation:
I have worked in the fashion industry for the last 8 years for a big designer in London. But last year I decided to leave the industry to have some me time and go see the world I’d only seen on the TV and in books. This has seen me travelling with my partner across Russia, Mongolia, China, Philippines and south east Asia. We are in east Asia at the moment and plan to now head to Oz and New Zealand before heading home early next year. It is during our travels that the environment and social issues have really come to mean a lot to us both. My partner has become very interested in organic and permaculture style farming and plans to get more involved in this where as I having spent 7 years in the high fashion industry and seeing the lack of concern for ethical practises wants to make a change in this sector. Luckily I have a very good friend who shares my need for glamorous, stylish eco friendly fashion and we have decided to pull both our skills together to create a label that reeks glamour and high quality but also cares.
Career history / Company history:
Worked for 8 years with big London designer names in the roles of pattern cutters, studio managers and Technical director
