Fashion Revolution Round Up

This week is Fashion Revolution Week and here at Ethical Fashion Bloggers we are all joining the revolution by sharing some of our favourite ethical and sustainable outfits in a little round up.

This haulternative video by Verena of My Green Closet features second hand clothes for her spring capsule wardrobe.

Marisa at My Fair Ladies describes her outfit

“This is an outfit post focusing on the beautiful sweater Philo made by Jan’n June a fair fashion label based in Hamburg. This outfit and the post was made as a part of a little #wardroberevolution that we, a group of german bloggers, started to have an outfit countdown towards Fashion Revolution Day.”

Jean at Jean of All Trades, describes her Fashion Revolution outfit
“I put together an outfit that is my favorite combination: a US-made sustainable investment pieces (my handmade shoes); an imported fair-trade, organic piece (my dress); a thrifted items (my jacket); and a DIY piece (my scarf).

I like combining the qualities of these pieces. together, they represent the things I value in clothing (treating people, animals and the environment well, and recycling/upcycling).”
Patricia of Project Minima ensures that she knows exactly who made her clothes, by making them herself.
Franca of Oranges and Apples knows exactly where her clothes were made, she made this dress herself.
In her post about Fashion Revolution, Noorin of Outsider Fashion, tells the story behind her clothes.

For my Fashion Revolution Outfit I am wearing a charity shop jacket, organic cotton dress by Nancy Dee, Shoes by Dream in Green and Bag by What Daisy Did. You can see the whole post here.

The #SecondhandFirst Outfit Challenge

secondhandfirst Traid

Secondhand First Week is organised by fashion reuse charity TRAID, to celebrate all things secondhand while committing to using more of our existing resources, rather than buying new. It involves a week of events, workshops and initiatives between 17th – 23rd November. TRAID is also asking for people to take the #secondhandfirst pledge to encourage people to commit to sourcing a percentage of their wardrobe secondhand.

Here at Ethical Fashion Bloggers, we will be celebrating the #secondhandfirst week with a little challenge of our own. It is pretty simple really.

All you need to do is put together a fantastic outfit featuring some or all secondhand clothes, take a picture about it, post it on your blog and then send me the link to ceri@heathcotecommunications.co.uk by midnight on 16th November (UK time).

It would also be great if you could mention Secondhand First Week in your post and link back to us here at Ethical Fashion Bloggers. I will post a round up of all of the #secondhandfirst outfits on 17th November.

You could also get even more involved by wearing something secondhand every day for the week and share by submitting your photos and styling tips to sarah@traid.org.uktweet @traid using the hashtag #secondhandfirst, or post on  Facebook page /TRAIDcharity. Find out more about the fun activities going on for #Secondhandfirst here

I look forward to seeing your #secondhandfirst outfits!

With warmest wishes

Ethical Fashion Bloggers Outfit Challenge Round Up

For this week, as it is our first ever outfit challenge, we just have two outfits from Franca of Oranges and Apples and myself.

Franca’s outfit is a colourful combination of vintage and ethical pieces taking inspiration from the oranges and sixties styles that were seen on the catwalk for AW11. You can read more about her outfit in her post Orange, Green and Ethical.

My outfit is a mixture of vintage florals and boots from Dream in Green inspired by pattern mixing, florals and oriental influences of Mary Katrantzou’s AW11 collection. You can read more about it in my post Ethical Fashion Bloggers outfit challenge.

A really big thanks to Franca on participating this week and helping to get the ball rolling. Ethical Fashion Bloggers is steadily growing in numbers, we should hopefully have a bigger participation up for our DIY in 2 weeks (more details very soon!). Please don’t forget to let me know if you have any ideas for our next outfit challenge.

If you would like to join Ethical Fashion Bloggers and participate in our post round ups, you can find out how to join here.

With warmest wishes

Ceri
