On 23 March Safia Minney’s new book ‘Slow Fashion – Aesthics Meets Ethics’ will be launched in London. Slow Fashion offers creatives, entrepreneurs & ethical consumers alike a glimpse into the innovative world of the Eco-concept store movement, sustainable design & business that puts people, livelihoods and sustainability central to everything they do.
The L’Herbe Rouge collection for Fall/Winter 2016-2017 ‘to the other shore’ was inspired by lakes, bays, natural streams and oceans. The effect on human wellbeing of these natural resources is enormous; travels, bathing, cures but also drinking water reservoirs. L’Herbe Rouge translated this inspiration in a collection with beautiful fabric structures (from smooth organic cotton to chunky knits made of recycled yarns) and a colour palette inspired by these water reservoirs and it’s shores.
Setting an example for the fashion industry in regards to fabrics choices and manufacturing processes L’Herbe Rouge helps to protect large amounts of fresh water.
24 + 25 January we were at MINT fair @ Modefabriek, where we proudly represented Hoodlamb FW16.
Some of you we saw at our stand and it was great to see you there!
We also attended the press event where 5 inspiring speakers shared their knowledge, thoughts and hopes on a fashion industry that is moving forward….
Marieke Eyskoot (co-founder of MINT) shared some hopeful figures, Andrew Morgan (director of The True Cost) challenged everyone to become a storyteller for a better fashion industry, British model Rebecca Pearson stole the show in a stunning long black People Tree dress and the chief editor of Glamour magazine announced that at least 10% of the content of the magazine will be about sustainable fashion & lifestyle from now on. This makes Glamour the first magazine to set a quotum for sustainable fashion & lifestyle.
