FROM FASH­ION WEEK TO FOOD TRENDS, ETH­I­CAL LIV­ING IS GET­TING A WHOLE LOT OF LOVE

Eco fash­ion house Min­istry of To­mor­row re­cently launched its own on­line mag­a­zine,

MOT. Is­sue one cel­e­brates Vivi­enne Westwood’s com­mit­ment to sav­ing the planet (pic­tured be­low) and shines a light on sub­jects in­clud­ing bionic yarn and history’s most iconic ac­tivists. A new gen­er­a­tion of for­ward-think­ing cre­atives — such as French de­signer Faus­tine Stein­metz, who makes re­cy­cled and hand-wo­ven denim pieces, and Paola Masperi of Mayamiko, an eth­i­cally minded la­bel that uses vi­brant tex­tiles from Malawi fab­ric mar­kets — is help­ing to quash any re­main­ing stigma at­tached to sus­tain­able fash­ion.

Zero waste has also been creep­ing into the food and drink scene, with Lon­don pi­o­neer­ing the move­ment. The ‘Scratch’ set menu at Som­er­set House’s Spring restau­rant is an in­no­va­tive three-course af­fair made from the day’s left­overs, while east Lon­don cock­tail bar Scout grows herbs and in­fuses sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents on site. As­para­gus, parsnip and cream are all used in cock­tails, to de­li­cious ef­fect.
