Loving my new @lucyandyak clothes! 🍓
As you might have seen from my stories, I am learning more and more about how damaging fast fashion is for our planet, and for factory workers. By fast fashion I mean fashion brands that have a high turnover of stock, which is made possible because they are produced quickly and cheaply (e.g asos, zara, h&m).
As appealing as following the latest trends and buying cheap clothes is, I am trying really hard to both reduce how much I buy, and/or buy from ethical brands such as @lucyandyak
I am aware that not everyone can afford to spend a little more on ethical clothing (but if you can I would urge you to use your privilege for good and make that decision). But this is why brands need to take responsibility, not only to slow down their business models, but also to move away from this culture of constantly buying new clothes and throwing way ‘old’ ones to keep up with trends.
I don’t know what the overall solution is but I am learning sooo much from @ajabarber , @venetialamanna , @remakeourworld and @labourbehindthelabel 🙌🏻 so I would urge you to follow them!

Have you been trying to be more sustainable/ethical with your fashion choices? If so I would love to know how! I know a lot of you love @lucyandyak so I have listed what I am wearing:
- 'The Organic Original' Corduroy Dungarees in Charcoal
- 'Ocean' Organic Cotton Tee in Pink with Sea Creatures
- 'Blake' Cosy Cropped Fleece in Rust, Mustard & Brown.
