It’s this time of the year again: with the Fashion Revolution Week taking place this week, four years after the Rana Plaza collapse, many people started to ask about the way their clothes were made. If you’re living in Switzerland, you can join the Fashion Revolution Day too and start sharing conscious thoughts. Meet the crew and some conscious actors on Saturday the 29th of April in Zurich at Photobastei — I’ll be there as well for a free upcycling workshop starting at 13.30. More information on http://fashionrevolution.org/country/switzerland/ and on Facebook!
Remember of this knitted jumper from Jungle Folk? I’m wearing it regularly, love every single detail about it. It’s even a good item for the cold April days. We had indeed snow this morning!!
When I started my kind of ‘conscious’ closet, two years ago, I wanted to keep a mix of old, new and transformed DIY items. There are still things I could do better. Though, I’m wearing my clothes quite a long time, for instance today my black jeans from Zara — 8 years old — because to me it’s not smart to get rid of things just because the brand doesn’t belong to the concept. Still in good condition. I have them, I wear them. But I just don’t go anymore to these stores. So today I wanted to share with you some facts that I find inspiring on that way.

We should all be able to start a change, get new habits. I have to say, the question ‘Am I ready to wear this more than 30 times’ is really useful.
I hope you enjoyed the post, and will take some time to think about it.
À bientôt, xx
