Interest in green economies, sustainable products and ethical commitments are undeniably growing. But, while consumer awareness for sustainability is rampant, does the talk translate into action? Have conscious consumers actually changed their buying habits to promote sustainability? Not necessarily, it seems.
Whether you’re sitting front row at Paris Fashion Week or scrolling through your Insta feeds for an up-to-the-minute taste of street style en francais, we’re certain you can’t get enough of any trend...
The sun is shining, spirits are high, and the nights are young. Summer is all about easy, breezy classics, keeping the layers light, and sticking to the essentials. Here are my top clean and green fashion picks for the midsummer lull -- you can look fantastic while remaining comfortably guilt-free.
I love fashion. But I have a confession: I haven't bought anything new for a very long time. It's not that I don't want to, it's just that I can't find what I want. Well, that's not exactly accurate. I can find plenty of things I like, but almost nothing that I love. Because love for me is about more than how something looks.
As a designer and entrepreneur, it is in my job description to make clothes that sell. I have a business that needs to make money to survive. But as a person, I think about things bigger than just making money. I wrote these 12 rules at the start of 2012 as a list of style resolutions.
Face it: we as a collective are addicted to discounts. Fashion's Night Out is an attempt by the industry to show another side, the side that has almost been lost and overshadowed by an industry now built on sales. Why is it that we are often more proud of how good we are at deal-hunting than we are about the actual qualities of the clothes we buy? And trust me, someone is paying for that $10 top, even if it isn't you.

Vancouver is not a city known for its sartorial sense, unless you're counting us taking the cake as the world's third worst dressed city. But a different fashion story emerged in this city, and that story took centre stage at Eco Fashion Week.
Most people don't care enough about doing good to change their fast fashion habits. Sure, the environment is important. And yes, so is the economy. And yes, so is being ethical. But these things are not enough to persuade people away from our number one obsession: ourselves.
