For our final day of the Fashion Crossover London Slow Fashion Week - Digital Event we focus on perhaps the most humanitarian pillar of Sustainability: Ethical Fashion. Three of our selected Fashion Crossover London designers will be sharing their work, knowhow and tips with us on how to be more sustainable in every approach of your design.
 
From shedding a light on local artisans and artists to celebrating Eastern and Middle-eastern culture though designs that keep alive the traditional crafts techniques as well as stories. For this last day of our #FCLSLOWFASHIONWEEK, we embark on a journey of fascinating story-telling, allowing us to travel to the furthest corners of the earth. Fashion Crossover London designers Tribe All, Farah Nasir and Edwin Charmain each act as representatives of sustainable trailblazers, embedding a greener and culturally-informed approach into each design decision.

Starting our final day of the #FCLSLOWFASHIONWEEK is Tribe All, an Aberdeen based t-shirt brand created by artist Angela Thouless. Tribe All is a brand that stands for inclusivity and diversity, with the aim of uniting people together regardless of their differences. The brand encourages people to be bold, take chances and be unapologetically true to themselves.

With Tribe All’s the main aim of inclusivity, all t-shirts are unisex and come in a wide range of sizes to ensure that no one is excluded. They aim to cover each aspect of today’s varied society, in order to make us feel united.

Continuing #FCLSLOWFASHIONWEEK is an ethical luxury scarf and shawl designer Farah Nasir. Farah Nasir’s collection highlights the distinct history of Pakistan and the diverse beauty which the country has to offer. Through her beautiful work, she honours the craftsmen who have shaped Pakistan and continue to play a huge part in her cultural identity.

The main material used in durable pure charmeuse silk; is a sustainable and luxurious fabric, which can be seen through how stunning Farah’s scarves are. Farah sources small businesses to digitally print her intricate designs onto the scarves, this method produces little waste and doesn’t harm the environment.

Concluding #FCLSLOWFASHIONWEEK is Edwin Charmain, a graphic, textile and jewellery designer. Edwin uses recycled silver and ethically sourced pearls and gemstones within his exquisite designs. Through his craftsmanship, Edwin continues to preserve local tradition and connects these ancient skills with new captivated customers.

Originally from “the city of batik” in Indonesia, Edwin’s work is inspired by his hometown’s batik culture and traditions. Through design, he explores ancient traditions and creates beautifully intricate jewellery.

 

With these three designers, we conclude our Fashion Crossover London Slow Fashion Week - Digital Event. Better informed, inspired and invigorated, we look forward to seeing a greener future.
