For April, the Ethical Fashion Blogger’s Outfit Challenge follows on with the theme of ‘Made Locally’. As I have mentioned before, our membership is worldwide and so Made Locally means something very different to each of our members. Here are the very stylish outfits that have been created.
Natalia of Fashion Against Idealogy looks chic, stylish and very French in her electric outfit (Made in France)
Franca of Oranges and Apples wears a beautiful African wax print dress from a local craft market that fits so well with her signature style , even though she is a long way from home!
Pao of Project Minima looks fanastic in polka dots modelled against a backdrop of her Chicago neighbourhood.
My outfit (featured on www.ethicalfashionblog.com) was Made in Britain by one of my favourite ethical labels.
Do you ever consider buying locally? what outfit would you wear to represent where you live.
With warmest wishes
As ethical shoppers, there are all different factors that we can take into account when deciding what to buy. Buying clothes that are ‘Made Locally’ can be a good way of supporting the local economy as well as cutting down on carbon footprint due to transportation costs. Locally made clothes are usually also governed by local labour laws which for many countries gives an added confidence that they have been manufactured ethically.
This month at Ethical Fashion Bloggers, we are focusing on clothing that is ‘Made Locally’ which means something very different for our members who live all over the world. With our recent Pinterest contest we hoped to share ideas and inspiration and to discover beautiful Ethical clothing that is also made locally.
Check out Libby of Golden Years Vintage massive Pinterest board – Made in Australia and my Board (Style Eyes Ethical Fashion Blog) - Made in Britain, if you would like to see what we found. You also might be interested in this Made in Britain board featuring lingerie.
