2. Shwopping is the new shopping, darling: Joanna Lumley launches clothes recycling initiative for M&S

 Schwopping at M&S

(I really couldn’t figure out the picture at the start. I thought it was advertising wearing used clothes. But according to the article “M&S filled an entire street in East London’s Brick Lane fashion district with the equivalent amount of clothing that we throw into landfill every five minutes – almost 10,000 items” –  makes you think)

3. Livia Firth, wife of Colin Firth has been in the headlines in the past months for her Green Carpet challange. I like her for making a stand and as she said being more than just the wife at the Oscars.

 3. Fashion food for thought. Maybe she’s reading too much into her fashion choices of particular moments but interesting idea and brave to put yourself to the test! The comments are OUCH

Is H&M the new home of ethical fashion?

With Cool and Cosy handmade Cashmere Tops and Pullover from Hollywood based designer to the stars and starlets – Deborah Lindquist.

Deborah customises vintage cashmere clothes and remakes it into eye catching and very wearable pieces in her studio in Los Angelus. Her quirky appliques and high quality customisation sets her clothes apart.

I’ve been a fan since coming across Deborah Lindquist at the Ethical Fashion Show in Paris in 2007. It was the colour and designs that I was attracted to as well as this concept of upcycling. Howsoever I am won over to the cashmere side after practically living in my first grey bolero for a Winter. I can vouch for the cosy insulation that comes from a relatively thin layer of clothing.

Frightfully Good Value- Our sale price at only €50 is also frightfully good value – if we do say so ourselves. This is not pittance by any means but a fraction of what you would normally have to pay for a piece by Deborah Lindquist. More importantly these tops are beuatifully made and will not only keep you warm, and be a friend for years to come.
