My name is Laricea Ioana Roman and I am a student at Kingston University, London (KU ID 0942659). I am doing a Master in Marketing, Advertising and Communications and at the moment I am writing my Dissertation. My topic is related to ethical clothing, more specifically, I am investigating how personal values influence customers' decision to buy ethical clothing. In order to come up with some answers for my topic, I need some opinions from people who actually bought ethical clothes.

hey holly!! hows the mega multitasking going? I've just got my work into the Bullring birmingham! wooo! I would be interested in stocking camden.. need about a month to get it together.. let me know a bit more about it! : D
You were there at the conference and we didn't meet! Oh!
Thank you for your comments about Social Alterations, the FEI conference was such an exciting opportunity for us, and we truly enjoyed every second of it!
It would be fantastic if you could share your notes/thoughts on the Shared India project as a quest blogger on the site. I think readers would really be interested to hear all the details. I saw the CSF video on the project, its linked in the videos section of the site, and it looked amazing!
Thanks for the message, and again, I'm sorry we never connected at the FEI conference! I should be back in London within the next few months, and we could grab a coffee!
we definitively need a hand and would be great to have someone new in the team.
here is a bit more: after a trip in India last February, I have jumped on a long lasting dream to develop a fashion line with the focus of making sure it is eco-friendly throughout all parts of the design, make and production.
We are a small team, myself with four others (from fashion, architecture and graphic design backgrounds) who are passionate about starting this range - but very much on a part time basis because this is not a funded project and everyone also has other commitments (apart from myself who is doing a business course to support this project).
After my trip to the region of Pondicherry especially and meeting various contacts and small local businesses, I saw the potential of beginning something very special and unique... a new fashion range of tshirts embroidered in an eco-conscious manner, but very innovative and desirable design... trying to break away from the mould that the word 'eco-fashion' evokes and make sure that the design aesthetic is not weakened by the fact that it is eco.
We are in the middle of designing the pieces and are now looking for someone who is keen to be involved and experienced in drawing up designs and bringing a constructive eye to the collection. But also to develop a blog, a list of buyers/clients, to keep an eye on ethical fashion events, websites... So much to do that I am sure we can find something that could suit personal and specific interests.
As I mentioned, none of this is funded, but could be a fantastic project to be involved with and I am very keen to encourage anyone working on the project to join me in India (btw the 11th of Jan and the 12th of april) and work with the embroiderers and small factories and develop the range out there.
This is a lot of information and it would only become clear whether this is anything of interest to you after maybe we meet up... so you can see the vision and aesthetic that we want to achieve and then you could decide if it would be something that you could put some time and enthusiasm to.
Looking forward to hearing from you
ooh no, what are the dramas ??? i am totally out of the loop...i have finally started on a very exciting (paid) project, so i have kind of moved on...what's happening though??? might have to discuss that via he (secure) facebook message page?! how are you getting on??
Hi Holly, I am interested to see you were involved in Shared Talent India as we supplied fabrics for this project and would love to know how you found the whole experience. Please check out our new website and blog page www.panchachuli.co.uk
Kind regards Mary
Hi Holly, interesting to hear your story about using tartans in your final collection. Love to see them.
Please have a look at www.internationaltartans.co.uk / www.tartansforafrica.com / www.sakurascotland.co.uk
If you drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org I'll send you some info and images about our fashion shows and opportunities for designers.
Thanks for the mail and kind comments. I can sadly claim no credit in their creation, apart from indirectly introducing the two actual designers, my wife and my family friend David McGill - who is also on the EFF and definitely worth a look-up if you're interested in tartans. He's not hard to find: just look out for the tartan sheep.
We got the first batch made down in England, but our producers have very recently gone into administration. Dave is responsible for finding producers, and is currently researching both north and south of the border, as well as in South Africa, which would help his International Tartans project (www.internationaltartans.co.uk) and Tartans for Africa project (www.tartansforafrica.com). If that's not whetted your appetite, then there's a bit more about us at: www.sakurascotland.com Saw your Indian connection - we are working with an Edinburgh-based charity, Scottish Love in Action, that currently support a couple of schools in India. One of our medium term goals is to encourage production in India, ideally by the 'untouchables' SLA care for.
Would be interested to see your collection(s?) of tartans.
