12 Degrees of Fashion

From Drapers Blog

Pop-Ups; the latest trend to sweep our streets. Restaurants, bars, clubs and shops that appear in unexpected locations only to disappear just as you find out about them. It’s a perfect concept for our hype-heavy society. It means that the owners of these businesses can take risks, appearing in dangerous locations or with a… Continue

Uk shine "Spotlight on Africa" (Blog post from my blog

Earlier this month the Ethical Fashion Forum held a seminar and marketplace in London on why Africa is becoming increasingly important in the apparel industry. According to EFF, in Kenya alone 30,000 people are employed in the apparel sector and for each of these jobs, another five are generated. As fashion is labour generated and requires limited capital input to fund, traditional skills such as hand-weaving, hand-embroidering, printing and tailoring offer a high premium.

Trade in… Continue

Fair Trade at GrassRoots

The following is an account of my own experience of a visit to The Association of Craft Producers, Nepal in April 2009

There are times when a person must see something in order to truly act upon it. Having travelled alongside decaying carcasses, abided with a corrupt road system and descending a beast defended drive way, I arrived at the Association of Craft Producers Nepal. In this haven we were greeted by Meera Bhattarai the executive director, and the drive behind the company with… Continue

The Accidental Environmentalist

Happy birthday London Fashion Week! Congratulations on reaching your jubilee!

I didn’t think I’d be so excited at the demise of summer, but the great governors of fashion cleverly slipped the heady delights of the sun splattered S/S shows just as SAD is about to kick in.

I’ve managed to wangle my way in to see the great and… Continue
