This weekend I went to a friend's wedding (it was such a beautiful day!) and while there I happened to meet some of the lovely people behind Life Threads - a new Fairtrade clothing company based in Melbourne.
A snapshot of interesting sustainable, social and ethical finds from my recent visit to New York.
Do you find there's a significant gap between over-the-top sex appeal underwear and the boring ranges you might find your granny perusing? Lucky for us, the beautiful midway is comfortably filled by NICO Underwear, who have recently released their latest range for Summer: 'In Your Dreams'.
Everyone eventually finds their perfect jeans, despite their very elusive nature. It's an arduous journey to get there and for some it can seem like a never-ending search, but eventually you have that moment after the hundredth pair, where you eventually have a Cinderella fits-like-it-was-made-for-me moment, and then you've found the one. For me, I finally had that moment with jeans from Nobody.
A few weeks ago I made a very 'not me' decision and bought tickets 6 weeks out to go to New York to visit my supremely cool sister who lives there now. On one hand, totally fine. On the other, totally crazy!
Kowtow have to be one of my favourite ethical clothing labels. I still remember how excited I was to find out about this beautiful organic and fairtrade certified label a few years ago, and it's been wonderful to watch their brand grow and move from strength to strength. I'm thrilled to show you all the first drop of their Summer 13/14 range.
Congratulations to Maddie, who is the winner of our Giveaway with ALAS for one set of their beautiful pyjamas.
