"That sustainable fashion will always be a controversial topic, and you don’t have to stress about going completely zero waste and organic from one day to another. You can start living a more sustainable lifestyle little by little, by switching to ethical brands if your budget allows, or by shopping secondhand or shopping with a capsule wardrobe mindset.
"Do you care about the environment, people’s wellbeing, safety stands? Then shop ethically, and sustainably, and you’ll feel better for it, and you’ll be hooked. We shouldn’t be wearing fashion at the cost of people’s lives. We need to look at the big picture and not just what’s hanging in our wardrobes."
One day I was looking at my work room and it was flooded with fabric and scraps all over---I realized that I am part of the industry that is polluting the environment. From that day onwards I made sure that every scrap on the floor was used. I started a zero waste policy and made sure that my tailors who worked for me were paid fairly well and I started slowing down.
