Profile Information

Profession / role:
eco-bag designer/manufacturer
Company / organisation:
Lara D' handcrafted bags
Website (if you have one):
My primary role in relation to fashion is:
Designer, Manufacturer
I am looking to discover or buy
interact with likely minded people and exchange creative yet ethical ideas.
About me / About business or organisation:
I have always had an attraction to beautiful textiles, buttons and vintage, rummaging in charity/thrift store and flea markets and car boot sales for the next treasures is one of my favourite past times. With a creative eye I have begun to create upcycled totes/bags from fabric remnants and textiles. Each bag is unique and fully reversible, one bag can be constructed from once a bedspread, a pair of once loved denim jeans, a belt as handles. another can be a reincarnation of a duvet cover, deluxe fabric swatches remnants and exquisite vintage buttons..... sometimes I painstakingly chose textiles that complement each other ,other times that totally contrast, depends on the mood of the day.....
Career history / Company history:
after 22 years working in the client services industry I am finally pursuing my calling and creative demeanor, making eco-bags from my atelier in the leafy suburbs of West London. No previous fashion training at all but lots of enthusiasm and a keen eye for ethical style.

Dear Laura!

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
Thank you very much for your help.
Yours sincerely,

Alma Erzhanova
