Style Ethics

The fash­ion in­dus­try has been shak­ing things up in a much more pro­found way when it comes to pro­duc­ing and selling prod­ucts. Look­ing into a cer­tain code of ethics that tries to erad­i­cate la­bor ex­ploita­tion and un­fair wages while up­lift­ing en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly prac­tices has be­come an in­te­gral part of pro­duc­tion. Peo­ple now don’t just buy stuff that looks good but they also want to be part of the greater good. This holis­tic ap­proach doesn’t just touch on what is or­ganic but rather on an aes­thetic that is sim­ple and sus­tain­able.

The more that peo­ple spend on items that can give them more mileage, there’s a big chance they’re also liv­ing with less clut­ter. As Ina Amor Me­jia men­tioned in our Fix­ture sec­tion, “[ Liv­ing clut­ter­free] is the cru­cial, cathar­tic first step to putting your home, and life, in or­der.” In our cover story, de­signer Vivien Ram­say also takes pride in a slow, metic­u­lous, and all-nat­u­ral process in pro­duc­ing her clothes. Style is no longer about look­ing good but also know­ing where peo­ple are putting their money. Wake up and smell the cof­fee. Con­scious ap­proaches to liv­ing are be­com­ing more sus­tain­able.
