Ethically and sustainably minded clothing brand with a unique approach to seasonal collections, releasing a “capsule wardrobe” of 5 versatile pieces that can be worn a variety of different ways.
Favourite item: Relaxed Capsule jumpsuit
Everlane is one of the most popular ethical fashion retailers today, and it's easy to see why. They have a huge selection of chic, minimalist basics at affordable prices. But if you want one of their more popular items, you may have to put your name down on the waitlist.
Favourite item: high-waist skinny jeans
RESPONSIBLE BRAND DIRECTORY
Each brand listed focuses on responsibility in at least one way. Some brands focus more on eco-friendly materials, others on social justice and fair labour, while others on slow, handmade designs, etc. I do my best to ensure that every brand is committed to safe work and liveable wages for their garment workers, but if you see a brand on the list that you do not think should be there, please do not hesitate to contact me.
