SUSTAINABILITY IS ALWAYS IN STYLE
Updated: Feb 24, 2020
Fashion is an ever evolving industry. For many of you, I am sure you are aware of the talk around fashion, sustainability and climate change. It is a hot topic that we are going to see more and more of. The average Canadian throws out more than 80 pounds of textiles/year. Astounding! I know all this talk and making change can be hard. My advice is baby steps..before throwing clothes out you don’t wear anymore, give them away, consign or update the style with a tailor. Fast fashion is going to be a thing of the past...the key is to try to invest in better pieces and have less of what we have. I always hit the sales (trust me, I know when every sale starts and when further discounts are going to happen). Five months ago I was admiring a $1200 dress and just the other day, I picked it up for $340. It’s timeless and I will wear it for years and then pass it along to someone else. More and more companies are looking at being responsible from their manufacturing to the textiles and chemicals that they use. I am here to help you in this journey....let’s rework your closet and your wardrobe, consign the good pieces you don’t wear anymore, pass along the other pieces and build a long lasting stylish wardrobe!
