A statement from the BFW organisers that we also believe:
“Fashion should not be harmful in any way, nor irrelevant. Sustainability is key, and ethical garments can represent this beauty powerfully. Our ‘sustain’ show promotes sustainability through the showcasing of designers and practitioners that are willing to combine innovative fashion design and ethical thinking to produce unique and efficient collections. Brighton is a city that overflows with morality and strong ethical values, making it an ideal location for ‘sustain’ to premier. ‘Sustain’ will unveil collections designed to test the boundaries of sustainable fashion as we know it; expressing the personality of the city and its people.”
In such times, where we’re constantly having to battle between excess and need, the organisers and designers of BFW show that the fashion industry can be creative as well as innovative in its pursuit for sustainable fashion consumption and the promotion of ethical practices.
Below are my top five collections from the catwalk:
