Update and sustainabilty news

I have written here for sometime, as I was busy finishing my MA. So was swamped by doing research, making garments and finishing up my final written piece. I have now completed the course and have been awarded an MA in Fashion Futures (formerly known as Fashion & the Environment).

Since the completion of my course I have also put a business plan together and raised seed money to start a business, which is based on sustainability and has a two prong approach.

Firstly I will be consulting for start up fashion businesses and secondly I will launch a collection for the “Ageless woman’ which was the basis of my final project.

I have also opened in a retail space and am presently selling some of my vintage product in Creativations in Fulham., along with my Sea Sirens swimwear label.

I am presently sourcing new materials to add to the collection and came across this interesting article today in The Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2014/jun/20/science-design-materials-sources-sustainable?CMP=new_1194

I had sourced this fabric over a year ago, but it was impossible to sample it as the manufacturer wanted such very high minimums as well as for me to be VAT registered!
