Over the last 18 months, my shopping habits have changed dramatically. The questions I ask myself before I even consider adding a new piece to my wardrobe, are far more important then they used to be. As someone who loves fashion and almost everything about it, changing my habits has admittedly, not been the easiest of tasks. However in spite of this and in spite of my career, I shop far less than I ever have and I consider my purchases/intake on a scale I never did, only a couple of years ago.
The outfit featured in this blog post is actually all from the incredible Net Sustain (ad) range, that launched around 12 months ago. A stand alone section on the Net a Porter website that gathers together all the brands that are considered to be, in one way or another, conscious.
Net Sustain gives you the ability to shop brands in the way that aligns with your specific needs. A curated collection of pieces, that tick at least one of the eight attributes making a brand internationally recognised for best practices in the sustainable realm. Not only is it the perfect way to discover a better way to shop but it contains some of the most incredible brands you’ll instantly fall head over heels for.
Here are four of my current favourite Net Sustain brands that I always seem to make a beeline for, whenever that now rare, shopping bug strikes.
In the interests of full clarity, Alex and I first shot these images as part of an Instagram campaign but I adored the end result so much, I took the opportunity to bring the look over to the blog and chat sustainable fashion in the process.
