“I have always been drawn to very simple, minimal designs. I occasionally splash out on colour but find shapes, textures and cuts more interesting than prints. I love the architecture of fashion.
Working on sustainability and environmental issues for a long time, I discovered just how much of a negative impact ‘fast fashion’ has on the world around us. But I have also become excited by the idea that the fashion industry, which is sometimes seen as frivolous, has an opportunity to be a vehicle for positive, long-term change.
When it comes to my own shopping habits, I try to do a little research before making a new purchase and look for things like the social and environmental record of a company, how they manufacture and what fabrics they use. Having accreditation systems now is amazing as it takes the hard work out of doing all the digging yourself!
