The Ethical Network

I have discovered only recently the Ethical Fashion Forum. This is an internet platform which brings together fashion people (designers, communication officers, PR, investors) to promote and spread ethics in the industry. It provides the willing designers with tools and money to support a fair or organic project. A consultancy group is also available to help companies adopting best practices. The Forum is supported by famous designers such as Vivienne Westwood and encourages development through fashion all around the world. Here is a video showing one of their projects in Africa in partnership with the International Trade Centre. Some events (awards ceremony, expo in London...) and a magazine (to be launched soon) also give the Forum some visibility.
The growing success of the Forum is well deserved: their initiatives, their involvement in ethical issues, development, and sustainable innovation through fashion, are unique. They offer an extensive range of services with an acute sense of communication and professionalism. The platform is both very didactic and sophisticated.

Beyond the ethical commitment, fashion is still the main concern of the Forum. And the least I can say is that it is not left behind. Among amazing designers, I find the Spanish jewel designer Leblas particularly eye-catching: Arabel Lebrusan combines her Spanish art references and heritage with beautiful craftsmanship. The material are all recycled or ethically sourced, while the prices remain low. This dreamy ring is one of the marvellous creations that you can find online.
Long live the Forum.
