I saw it in drapers record but this article was on another website...i forgot the name :)

The Green Room by ASOS

ASOS has announced that it will launch The Green Room, a new section on its site to target ethically minded shoppers and boost ASOS's ethical credentials. The new area will launch in February and will feature on the main site with its own dedicated home page.

A number of new brands have been signed for the launch, including Emma Watson for People Tree, footwear brand Beyond Skin, footwear and accessories brand Swedish Hasbeens and footwear brand Terra Plana.

The new site will give existing ethical brands that trade with ASOS, including the core People Tree collection and footwear label Melissa, the opportunity to double the traffic and exposure they receive because they will be sold on the main areas of the site and in the new Green Room.

ASOS is seeking new brands for the site and said its criteria was brands or labels that “promote people and the planet”.

To support The Green Room, ASOS will also launch an ethical own-brand range called ASOS Africa selling clothes sourced from community projects across Africa. The etailer will also team up with fashion bloggers who will create organic T-shirt designs.

Dear Kahindo, Karibu Kenya.

Dear Liz, the term 'well dressed' is relative. Adaptable could be the thing … much of the dressing around is a mishmash of cultures. Boundaries never too clear and you never know where ‘Kenyan’ begins and where it ends … Look deeper, a little beyond!!!!
