Fashion Revolution Week is upon us and in the wake of COVID-19, we're scrutinising fashion now more than ever. Australia’s NBN network has seen a daytime usage increase of 80% and searches for 'sustainable fashion' increased 110% in March. We're glued to our screens and we're looking for more sustainable alternatives in every aspect of our lives. If there's a silver lining to this coronavirus crisis, a shift to more sustainable living is it.
While things are a little strange out in the world and virtual shopping is the 'new norm', you can still book in for a private one on one session with me, a virtual fitting to find your perfect fit at home, or a private contactless at-home fitting to shop our instore ranges from the comfort of your own dressing room.
I Found Lucy. is a label with an artistic heart and unswayable ethos, and incredibly, Lucy is a self-taught designer and dressmaker too. She channels her childhood love of all things arts and craft into her label, and she's not shy about the kind of woman she's designing for; I found Lucy. is a brand for the unapologetically feminine.
Join us in-store for a day of champagne, shopping and style inspiration with Melbourne’s leading personal stylist, Sally Mackinnon of Styled By Sally. You'll also have the opportunity to meet and greet some of our designers, find inspiration for ethical and sustainable gifting, and spend the afternoon in good company.
Grace Beverley is the first inspirational fellow female on our Boss Lady List, and what a woman to launch with and set the standard. Grace is an impressive woman; she has nearly 600k subscribers on her YouTube channel and over one million followers on Instagram, but we don’t love her for the numbers. Grace is an advocate for sustainable fashion, and a body-positive honest #ladyboss.
YOU GOT THIS is an event about getting real, being open and honest, and reminding our fellow females in business that what you’re experiencing – is perfectly ‘normal’. We’re opening a can of worms on the reality of being a #bosslady in charge of an innovative business.
Ethical and sustainable fashion is about so much more than living wages and eco-friendly fabrics; it’s about taking responsibility for your impact on those who make your clothes, and those who wear them.
If no one in Australia bought a single-use coffee cup today and instead used a reusable cup, we’d save 2.7 million cups today alone. 70 million barrels of non-renewable oil are used every year to make the world’s consumption of polyester fabric, and 60% of all fashion bought is made from it.
I love the sound of bangles chiming together on my wrist. I love wearing four rings on one hand or stacking three different rings on one finger. I love dangly earrings and tribal-inspired adornments, and it's why I fell in love with Meg Watson and her jewellery.
In 2016, I spent $6500 on fashion. In 2017, I bought only Australian-made clothes. In 2018, I spent $9 on a pre-loved outfit, but otherwise, bought no new clothes. Yep, I tried the minimalist thing and bought nothing for 365 days.
This entire outfit has made by a woman who I’ve known for more than half a decade. She has children, she is passionate, she is incredibly talented, and she has never swayed from her values, remaining ethical and Australian made.
Values are what make us human. Values are what connect us, but they’re also what separates us. I value ethics and sustainability, and Burberry values their ‘reputation’, which is why they burn their end of season stock.
We all tend to make New Year’s resolutions, but what about new month resolutions? Sticking to one goal for a whole year can be hard, and let’s be honest, it’s pretty easy to fall off the wagon every now and again.
