How can you shop for fashion sustainably? Guest blog by Kendall Robbins #fashionrevolutionday

Sustainable fashion is a concept which i often struggle with. The fashion industry is hugely complex and it is hard to know which strand to unravel first; fairtrade, human rights, organic cotton, ethical supply, water supply, packaging, shipping?… just a few of the interlinked factors to consider. I tend to side step the issue by dressing mainly in charity shop treasures and the wonders of my mother and grandmother’s hand-me-down wardrobe (thankfully they are two extraordinarily elegant women). Like the rest of us there are still times where I need to buy something new and am completely stuck with which issue to tackle first, where to find what information and not sure if I can trust it when I do. Luckily for me my friend Kendall Robbins, who is Fashion Programme Manager at the British Council, has written a blog which looks at the choices we face as a conscious consumer and what we can do to have a more ethical relationship with our wardrobe. It is also as a reminder of the human touch behind our clothes and the value that has. An important reminder for us all on fashion revolution day.
