It took a lot of un-learning to recover from my fashion overconsumption, let me tell you! The consumerism trap is real.
But after a year spent studying for a diploma in fashion styling, working in a hands-on role for an ethical fashion brand, and really honing my personal style, I’m finally in a place where I genuinely love each and every one of the garments that have earned a place in my wardrobe – and I always have something to wear.
We throw away £12.5bn worth of clothes each year. That's madness!
Now more than ever it’s essential that we shop better, and shop less. Not only is the sheer volume of clothes we are producing suffocating the planet, but fast fashion practices are abusing the human rights of garment workers all over the world.
Ethical fashion is a huge buzzword right now, and we all want to make better choices. But how can you tell if something is really ethical? What about sustainable? And where can you actually find conscious choices that suit your style and budget?
I believe it’s totally possible to be stylish and sustainable. After all, you need to love the clothes you’re wearing if you’re going to make a positive change. I can guide you to the colours that will make your look ‘pop’, the silhouettes that will enhance your natural assets, and show you simple style tweaks to make every outfit instantly look pulled together.
By honing your wardrobe not only will you minimise your environmental impact, but you’ll ultimately save time and money, and build your confidence in the process. Sounds good, no?!
Whatever your style or your budget, I promise I can help you craft the wardrobe you’ve always dreamed of. Let’s do this!
