Dress – Street Lines Clothing, jeans – Country Road, shoes – Carvela at Spitz
It’s been a while since I did a little outfit wrap-up on Instagram! I’ve become way better at replying to comments (if I do say so myself), but sometimes I do miss out on some of your stockist queries, so I’ve listed where everything is from from each outfit!
With Fashion Revolution Week in full swing (24th-30th April), looking back at these images, my favourite thing about them all is that I’m wearing local brands in ten out of these seventeen pictures, with fifteen locally-produced items in total.I’m not an absolute saint with my clothing, but I am making more conscious decisions to wear locally-produced, ethically-made clothing. Fashion Revolution Week is a global cause founded in England with teams all over the world, including SA, who continue to drive their #whomademyclothes? conversation. The campaign urges consumers to ask the producers of their clothing “who made my clothes?” to shed light on the conditions the clothing was made in, and for brands to accept the responsibility they have in the industry. Pushing forward concepts of “fast fashion isn’t free, and that we should rather “buy less, choose well and make it count”, it’s a conversation worth having, and you can read more about it on www.fashion revolution.org. As much as we all love to be fabulous, our style has a story and its our responsibility to find out what it is, don’t you think?
Anyway, that’s it from me for today. I’m about to eat some soup and take a work break before knuckling down on some video edits. If you’re from SA, happy Freedom Day for tomorrow!
