I founded Sari, an ethical fashion label in 2002, recycling vintage saris into high end womens wear. My background in sales and marketing helped me establish a successful business. However, the problems I faced in manufacturing in the UK led me to set up Toumazi and Co with Thomas Toumazi a manufacturer with over 30 years experience. I am dedicated to sustainable business practices and strive to support and promote sustainable UK manufacturing and fashion.

I would very much appreciate your help. I am studying for an MA in Marketing at Kingston Business School under the supervision of Professor Robert East. We are conducting research about Fairtrade goods and ethical fashion clothes, and ask you to complete the enclosed short questionnaire. I am also offering a £50 shopping gift voucher to the lucky prize draw winner!!!!
I really need to find social responsible persons who buy ethical fashion clothes. Any help in distributing my link among ethically concerned people will be very valuable.
Could you please complete this questionnaire, following the link
