How to build an Ethical Wardrobe

Learn how to switch to clothes good for you and our planet.

The 2018 Global Slavery Index findings are astonishing. In the UK alone garments are sadly the 1st highest product at risk of being made in modern slavery (with electronics in the second place).

With this workshop you will discover the true cost of your clothes, how to get the most out of your wardrobe and how to build the foundations of a sustainable wardrobe (without spending a fortune).

What is Ethical Fashion?

Are you curious for every step of your clothes creation process?
Do you ask questions about where was it made?
Who made it? How was it made?
What difference can it make if you change what you buy?
Your everyday choices can be the seeds of a smarter, more beautiful way of life.

There is no doubt that the current fashion business activity is creating negative impact on the environment.

The relatively low prices and constant supply of new designs in the shops have made us lost our connection with where our garments come from and their true value. As a result we are disconnected from the true cost of our clothes which is the key to caring for our future.

As a professional I am at the forefront of the socially conscious fashion and a keen supporter of the brands that respect our planet as well as the people and the animals.

Ethical Fashion is an umbrella term to describe sustainable fashion design, production, retail, and purchasing.

With increasing concern about global warming, fair trade, working conditions, child labour and animal welfare there has never been a better time to learn more about the creation of our clothing.

Topics we will cover during the workshop (not an exhaustive list):

  • What questions should you ask before buying new clothes?
