Why Ethical Fashion Loves "Direct to Consumer" (and You Should Too)

Why Ethical Fashion Loves “Direct to Consumer” (and You Should Too)

The moment I understood – really grasped in its entirety – what "direct-to-consumer" means, my mind got blown. It's  not a hard concept to wrap your head around. But I don't think many consumers get the full import of it. Because if they did, well, everyone might shop differently. To explain, let's start by describing...

    Sustainable Style: For a Rainy Day

    Sustainable Style: For a Rainy Day

    Can I admit something to you? I don't like Hunter Boots. I dutifully bought a pair in navy blue when I first moved to New York City. I say "dutifully," because it's almost like you have to. What else should you wear in a downpour in the city to look stylish? Hunter's, that's what. And...

    10 Sustainable and Ethical Spring and Summer Outfits. No Fast Fashion Here!

    I'm not one to start haranguing you in February to go spring shopping (like some magazines, OK, almost all magazines, do).

    Is Fashion Finally Coming Around to Sustainability?

    Is Fashion Finally Coming Around to Sustainability?

      I attended the second annual Fashion Tech Forum on Thursday, a confluence of fashion notables interested in how technology affects the making and selling of fashion. I felt like I was having a peek into a whole other world. Impossible chic and professional women and men swanned about the two warehouse-sized, white floors, hugging each...
    Sustainable Style: Vintage Like Your Mom

    Sustainable Style: Vintage Like Your Mom

    You want to know the truth? I'm not a huge vintage/thrift shopper. And I feel like that's a moral failing. Being good at thrift shopping is like being fashionable, creative, and money smart, all at the same time. It's also very sustainable because instead of buying something new, you're recycling something that was already worn by...
