Lovely new eco-fashion site

Nice to see this eco-fashion site http://thisiwear.com

Good to see others also promoting organic cotton sustainability benefits, and that you can feel good wearing it knowing you’ve helped make peoples lives better rather than worse given how many feel after the RanaPlaza Bangladesh garment factory collapse tragedy.

Fashion Voice to Protect our Planet – Vivienne Westwood

Slow Fashion for sustainable fashion

Can’t say I love every piece in the collection (although a few beauties I wouldn’t mind),……..but HATS OFF to legendary Vivienne Westwood for being a Sustainable Fashion Stand against climate change in her recent fashion show documented on Good.is here:

Quality rather than Quantity

Vivienne spoke about being pushed to “open stores” and sell more, yet her realisation that it is more important to focus on quality first. As Founder of eco-fashion social enterprise www.SuavEco.com I can relate to the fast fashion push.

My response to “How many shirts have you sold?” elicited shock when I explained I am focussed on getting the shirt tailoring quality and worker living wage right first! Slow Fashion is Good Fashion might have to become my new phrase!

SuavEco is Slow Fashion to ensure Living Wage is paid first, and as organic cotton (minus chemicals) takes a little more time. But don’t we want more Quality rather than just Quality?

Climate Change prevention Inspired by Cycling

Congrats to Vivienne’s Designer for saying “its inspired by cycling”,…& “we bike everywhere”.

As Fashion leaders the Vivienne Westwood team can inspire trendsetters in our generation to get back on bikes & clean the street air, prevent carbon emissions, prevent the need for gym lighting & air-con, & stay fit & sexy!

Beautiful London Views “Boris bikes”

I just spent the past few days loving the fresh air on my face, and burn in my legs from the blue “Boris bikes” (as everyone insisted on calling them). Saw some stunning parts of London I had never seen before….

Wishing you all happy cycling, and to enjoy quality fashion,….Less is More!
