12 best sustainable fashion brands for women

“Sustainable” has become a catch-all term to describe a better way of producing the clothes that we buy and wear.

 It’s the antithesis of fast-fashion and that habit of buying a new, cheap top for every night out, which may well fall apart after a couple of washes anyway.

Sustainable processes are kinder to the environment – after oil, the fashion industry is the second largest polluter – and to the people involved in the production process.“

Fashion holds a mirror up to society, showing what’s going on in economic, cultural, social and environmental terms,” says Professor Dilys Williams from the Centre for Sustainable Fashion at London College of Fashion.

“It is also implicated in some of the biggest environmental and social challenges that we face globally including climate change and modern slavery.” The centre is ensuring its graduates understand the task in hand and the need for an alternate plan for the future.
