Style: Eleven Ethical Local Fashion Picks
Ethical fashion. It’s a really important thing to be across. The terrible Bangladesh tragedy has created awareness about this issue in the saddest of ways. Hardly a silver lining when so many lives were lost, but definitely something we should talk about.
I’ve done a bit of a scout around for Australian fashion retailers who have been accredited as ethical choices. I think you could also turn to some local Etsy sellers or craft markets for even more positive purchases (just make sure you ASK about where the items were manufactured.) There may still be issues with the ethics of the raw materials used in fashion, but this is one great way to shop consciously and be sure your garment is not made at the expense of someone else’s human rights.
I had a lot of trouble sourcing authentic plus size fashion. I couldn’t find any that was ethical and also on trend. But perhaps I am looking the wrong places? If you know of any labels or retailers who produce or stock ethical plus size garments, please could you let me know in the comments. I’ll write a Part 2 in this series and we can promote their great product too!
Here’s some great local ethical fashion choices to consider. Is this something that’s important to you?
