No waste, only grace.

No waste, only grace.

Last month, here in the Netherlands was a check-to-reality for me, as a passionate fashion consumer and blogger. The theme of the #Dutchsustainablefashionweek this year was the circular economy. I was in the front-row at the catwalk opening. Designers Danya Wevers, Map Renes, Monique Collignon , Judith van Vliet en Hellen van Rees showed their amazing collection…

Earth Matters – remember that fashion world.

Earth Matters – remember that fashion world.

The exhibition “Earth Matters” at the Textile Museum in Tilburg is a call for me to keep admiring fashion designers and brand concepts that promote sustainability. The galleries of the museum were full of insightful content, with samples of botanical ingredients turned into a fashionable product without harming the environment. Conscient designers recycle, upcycles, collect and reinvent…

Hear, hear! My thoughts on the Fashion Revolution week

Hear, hear! My thoughts on the Fashion Revolution week

I know who made my hat because Bello&Eco made sure that the women artisans in the north of Peru sustain their families.

Making sure the people involved in the production earned their fair wages in good working conditions.

Since the tragic event of Rana Plaza, the secret of cheap clothing on fast fashion is revealed. Plenty of reasons for the fashion industry to become aware of waste disposal, carbon releases, poor working conditions
