We’re shining fresh new light on some of the industry’s sustainable fashion stars.

But what is sustainable fashion (versus, say, ethical fashion)?

Sustainable fashion advocates for the planet’s finite resources, using primarily sustainable materials and low-impact manufacturing processes, which thereby minimises any negative environmental effects. Many of our brands also count as ethical fashion – that is, they concern themselves with the fair treatment of workers, as well as other factors like being cruelty-free or using organic materials.

Collina Strada

Although founder Hillary Taymour has stated that she doesn’t personally label her brand as sustainable, Collina Strada is certainly setting the pace for others to follow. Keeping integrity and transparency at the heart of everything she does, Taymour has found ever increasingly innovative ways to embrace an eco-friendlier way of production, from creating fabrics out of rose petals to recycling deadstock destined for landfill. Collina Strada also uses its position as a platform for social issues. Translating its message through a free-spirited attitude and provocative detailing, the brand’s Fashion Week presentations are intended not just for visual aesthetics, but for personal reflection, too.

1/OFF Paris

Rooted in the upcycling movement, 1/OFF Paris – as its name suggests – creates one-of-a-kind pieces from designer vintage items. Due to the individual nature of each design, you’ll never be spotted wearing the same outfit as someone else; and, thanks to the brand’s unisex sizing and inclusive ethos, you needn’t limit yourself to just shopping in the women’s section. With studios located in both Amsterdam and Paris, you can even get a bespoke design created just for you – because, after all, you are also a one-off. 1/OFF Paris uses a variety of vintage designer clothes to craft its collections, including Burberry trench coats and Gucci shirts as well as popular sportswear brands like adidas and Puma.
