3 Ethical Fashion Projects Led By Women To Support This Week
by Sica Schmitz | Posted on August 12 2016
It's an exciting time in ethical fashion as more and more people start to question what our purchases support and how we can make more conscious shopping choices.
At the forefront of creating change are passionate people going unconventional routes to bring new stories and options to this conversation. Below we're highlighting 3 ethical fashion projects happening right now, all led by women tackling this issue through different ways including design, editorial, and co-creating. Show your support and get involved!
ETHICAL STYLE JOURNAL KICKSTARTER
Ethical Style Journal asks the question: can you be stylishly committed to changing the world? (We hope the answer is yes!). This new digital, quarterly magazine will celebrate all that's right with fashion: sustainable, sweatshop-free, cruelty-free and fair trade styles.
Led by the passionate woman behind Fashion Just Cause and featuring our very own founder as the Fashion Editor, this unique voice will offer inspiring photos and stories for those both new and seasoned in the world of sustainable style.
Miakoda is already known for their organic and ethically made clothing that is equally fashionable and functional. Crowdfunding for their newest collection, they are tackling ecological, sustainable, and compassionate clothing with a twist by creating athleisure at an accessible price point for every person who wants to make a difference without sacrificing form, function and fashion.
MAVEN WOMEN CO-CREATING
Be a part of the process from start to finish by voting through Maven Women's co-creating project.
Aimed at ethical professionals, Maven Women designs comfortable, flattering wardrobe staples with modern twists that are easily dressed up or down for an elegant day-to-evening look. Offering full transparency around how they produce their clothing and why it is different, they pay the true cost of production. This includes paying a living wage to workers at each step in their supply chain and being cognizant of their environmental footprint.
