Build Your Sustainable Summer Look With These 5 Ethical Fashion Labels


Build a sustainable summer look with these 5 ethical fashion labels.

The pollution resulting from the global production of textile is still a serious issue.

Fashion industry emits 1.2 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases every year, more than maritime shipping combined with international flights.

Dealing with the negative impact the fashion industry has, not only on people but also on the planet, remains critical.

Finally, cruelty-free and eco-friendly labels are taking centre stage.

Moreover, we’re witnessing the awakening of the conscious fashion consumer.

Time to achieve that sustainable summer look. Enjoy 🤗

1. Marble Dress from Edward Mongzar

The first garment on our sustainable summer look comes from the ‘Edward Mongzar‘.

Sustainable summer look by Edward Mongzar

Edward MongzarMisty Marble Dress

Drawing inspiration from cultural diversity, Edward Mongzar was born in the state of Nagaland in north-east India and is now based in the UK.

Edward believes that womenswear should be soft and gentle, as well as freeing and liberating.

This is vividly recognisable is his work with marbling as an ultimate expression of the ‘live and let live’ idea.

The label brings back to life long-lost artisanal traditions of marbling,

Also, the ready-to-wear designer’s creations are handcrafted and ethically conscious.

The label uses natural dyes, recycles water, and uses fair production practices through a zero-electricity process.

Our recommended piece from ‘Edward Mongzar’ for your sustainable summer look is the ‘Misty Marble Dress‘.

Hand-dyed in a ‘Misty’ design, this dress shouts:

Babes, you’re the queen of the beach!

2. Sustainable Summer Look with Balluta Shoes

As part of a complete sustainable summer look, you’ll need shoes.

But, we know a brand that makes some of the best sustainable shoes out there.

Medicine Werx was founded around the idea that the only way forward for fashion is to start reverting the industry’s damage to the environment.

Looking back to ‘freedom’ of expression and style, Medicine Werx boards its shoppers in a ‘flower-power’ archaic lifestyle.

We think that the perfect pair of matching sunglasses for your sustainable fashion outfit is the Reallusion – Lacewood.

These handcrafted sunglasses combine sustainability with innovation.

The frames are made from Lacewood sourced in ethical ways and paired with powerful CR39 polarised smoke lenses.

Moreover, with each pair purchased, the brand pants 10 trees through ‘Trees for the Future’.

Suddenly, ‘looking good while doing good’ has become easier than ever.

5. Sustainable Summer Look with SVNR Earrings

Other must-have components, as part of your sustainable summer look, are ethical jewels and accessories.

SVNR earings a perfect match for sustainable fashion styles

I don’t think I have enough good words to say about SVNR sustainable label and their upcycled pieces of jewellery.

Creations of Christina Tung’s, SVNR’s lead designer, every creation showcases a deep ethical mindset and love for fashion.

Not only that these earrings are considered mini pieces of art, but they’re also made only from raw materials obtained from discarded and recycled accessories.

The perfect accessory to match your sustainable summer look is the Aksaray earring.

We’ve chosen the Aksaray not only for their sustainable value but also for their breathtaking design.

The earth-shaded gradients reflected by these earrings evoke the red hues of the arid Turkish landscape at sunset, and the translucent salt crystals extracted from the lake.

Aksaray name derives from an essential stopover on the Silk Road, and the leading salt supplier in the ancient Anatolia.

As all SVNR earrings are meant to be either worn alone or mixed and matched, all earrings are sold individually, unless otherwise stated.

With the hope you liked my sustainable outfit of the day, I’m looking fwd to your comments below.

A decade of fashion; here’s to the next one.

The past decade has been turbulent – and defining – for fashion: child labour, climate crisis, gender inequality, animal cruelty, and reckless plastic pollution, just to name a few.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, the beginning of this decade does not look too good either.

That’s why finding media that reports with rigour and integrity at heart is difficult in critical times.

Finding media that informs all, regardless of where they live or if they can afford to pay, is even harder.

In these times, independent fashion media magazines are increasingly silenced by commercial ownership and social media misinformation.

So far, your unceasing support has allowed us to keep delivering trustworthy, relevant, high-quality content.

Your support allowed us to uphold our editorial independence and ensure honest journalism, free from commercial ownership or political bias.
