Sustainable Fashion - everything you wanted to know

In today's world, the fashion industry is undergoing change and transformation towards sustainability.

This movement is not just a trend but a commitment to a more conscious approach to design and production.

At the heart of sustainable fashion lies the idea of buying local, reusing and recycling materials.



What is the damage of fast fashion on earth pollution?

Fast fashion, with its fast production cycles and cheap materials, contributes significantly to environmental damage. In fact, the fashion industry is responsible for about 10% of global carbon emissions, with fast fashion being the main culprit. In addition, it is estimated that the industry produces 20% of the world's sewage and is responsible for 35% of the microplastics released into the sea. These staggering numbers highlight the urgent need for sustainable alternatives in fashion.



Buy local

Supporting local fashion is not only strengthening small businesses - it is a statement in favor of sustainability, and for the benefit of the future of all of us on our planet.

By choosing to support local designers and production, you are voting with your wallet for a better ecosystem, in addition to strengthening the economy and local production which is very important to us - especially in difficult and challenging times.


this is why:

Reduced carbon footprint:

Local production means fewer kilometers of transportation of materials and finished products.

This translates into a significant reduction in carbon emissions compared to global fast fashion supply chains.

Ethical work practices:

Local businesses have more oversight and accountability, which ensures fair wages and safe working conditions for workers.

This is in sharp contrast to the exploitative working practices prevalent in many fast fashion establishments.

Community and economic impact:

Supporting local fashion keeps money circulating within the community and within our country, it fosters economic resilience and supports many circles of local livelihoods.

Quality over quantity:

Local designers generally prefer quality work over mass production. This means that the clothes are made to last, reducing the need for frequent changes and ultimately reducing the burden on the environment.


Reuse - buy second-hand

Buying second-hand fashion also contributes significantly to sustainability in the fashion world.

By giving new life to existing clothes, we reduce the demand for new production, thus reducing the environmental footprint of the fashion industry. Moreover, extending the lifespan of clothing items reduces textile waste, which contributes significantly to landfills and pollution.

Adopting secondhand fashion not only promotes a circular economy but also encourages creativity and individual style.

It's a win-win for both fashion lovers and the planet.




Sustainable fashion in the design of my collections:

For me too, sustainability is not just a trendy word, it's a practice that has been woven into my designs over the years.

I carefully save the fabric remnants, and cherish each and every part for future creations. Instead of letting these materials disappear into the landfill, they become part of my collections and creations.

In my studio, these scraps of fabric find a new life. I combine different pieces together to create new designs.

By reusing materials, I not only reduce waste but also infuse my creations with a sense of individual authenticity and character.


In addition, I create One Of Kind models - that is, unique models from leftover fabrics that I liked.

Each item is proof of the potential of ethical fashion and ecological awareness.

These models are not just clothes; They invite the wearer to embrace sustainability and individuality

without compromising on style.


Here are some of the models - One Of A Kind from my collections:




In conclusion

Supporting local fashion is not just finding unique items - but investing in a better and more respectful future. It's a tangible way to align your values with your purchasing decisions and make a positive impact on both the environment and the community.
