The Sustainable Clothing Brands You Need To Know About

The fashion industry is one of the worst sectors in the world in regards to it’s carbon footprint. Sustainable clothing brands are important!

Fast fashion; synthetic fibres; the overproduction and distribution of crops; as well as the overproduction of items are just some of the reasons it has such an affect on the environment.

Monsoon

Yep, our beloved high street store has been an advocate for sustainability since it’s creation! The website states:

Levi’s

‘It’s about making better clothes like WellThread™, our most sustainably designed collection. And it’s about bettering the planet and the communities that share it at every step along the way’.

There’s even some designer sustainable clothing brands!

Stella McCartney

This designer sustainable clothing brand – which is suitable for kids, men and women – recently had a ‘rebrand’ of sorts with their ‘A-Z Manifesto’.

The brand has never used leather, feathers, skin or fur in any of their designs; a concept that was originally seen as revolutionary yet now it’s something we are all striving for.

Hi, guys! Taking a break from our #StellaSummer21 shoot to tell you about what I have been working on. During lockdown, I had a rare moment to pause, reflect and question what really matters. I put into words everything that we love and believe about fashion – an A to Z of #StellaMcCartney. It is a manifesto of sorts; a map of our DNA and a blueprint of our future, brought to life by 26 global artists handpicked by me. Each one chose a letter and created a piece that embodied their vision and our values, elaborated on further in our Spring and Summer 21 collections – to be revealed in the weeks to come. Stay tuned. x Stella? ? Discover our A to Z manifesto on #StellasWorld (link in bio).? ? #StellaCommUnity #StellaAtoZ? ?
