This is what the Fashion Revolution means to Australian label, Tatyana Design

Transparency in the fashion industry, or lack thereof, is what the Fashion Revolution campaign is all about. The #whomademyclothes movement runs from April 23-29 each year to combat human rights issues in the fast fashion industry, and through awareness, conversations and events, slow fashion advocates and positive change makers all around the world work together to better the industry. 

As a community at The Fashion Advocate, we take responsibility for the impact that we have on our people and our planet, and our designers are at the forefront of the Fashion Revolution. We are proud of our values and ethics, and we’re more than happy to strip back the bright lights and the glitz and glam of it all, to get real at The Fashion Advocate. Through honesty and integrity, we can change the industry for the better and use fashion as a force for good, and our community of designers work towards this shared goal every day. 

Tatyana Anderson shares our values and views, and she's the creative mind behind Tatyana Design. She is passionate about ethics, she cares about sustainability, and she's a responsible slow fashion advocate...

Why are you passionate about ethical fashion?
As an immigrant to Australia, I am grateful for the opportunity to live out my dream as a designer and I believe that this opportunity must be available to all Australians. Local employment and fair payment for work are integral to ethics in any field or endeavour.

Why are you passionate about sustainability in the fashion industry?
Without sustainability, we cannot continue. I believe that we can and must embrace sustainability in every approach to fashion. Everything helps; I choose to work with natural fibres which decompose easily, and all of our production off-cuts are repurposed into small items such as eye masks too. By designing made-to-order pieces and keeping low stock levels, there is no mass throw-out at the end of the season either. 

Why do you do what you do?
There is a little madness involved in being a fashion designer! For me, fashion designing is in my blood, as I'm the fourth generation to pursue this passion in my family.

How did you come to launch your couture bedroom-wear collection?
My entry into designing beautiful sleepwear was motivated by personal reasons. I wanted to buy gorgeous lingerie and sleepwear for my honeymoon but was disappointed to find nothing available. I spoke to some lingerie shops who supported my vision and so I launched my first collection! 

How have people embraced your ethical approach to couture?
I would love to see more people embracing the twin concepts of ethical and sustainable fashion. There are some consumers who are committed to buying fewer garments that are produced ethically and locally. These garments may have a higher price tag, but they will last and look good for much longer. It would be fabulous to see this group of consumers increase. I am hopeful!

I spent my first five years in business stressed and in debt.

If you're feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or if you're not making enough sales to survive, you're not alone. I've been there.

I was exhausted and I wanted to quit.

Then I worked out a strategy that dramatically changed my business, increased my sales, and saved me time. I want to share it with you!


Want to know the top three ways to grow a successful and sustainable fashion brand?


    Every week on Instagram, you can ask me anything about fashion, business, ethical manufacturing, sustainability, and growth to get the answers you need to overcome challenges. Marketing, PR, your strategy, sales, how to wholesale, Instagram engagement, customers, sourcing... Whatever it is, ask me your questions and I'll go LIVE on Instagram with the answers you need to move forward.



    To build a successful, sustainable and profitable fashion business, you have to empower yourself with knowledge and learn from others in the industry. I ran one of the largest online stores for ethical and sustainable fashion for over a decade, and I learned the ins and outs and the rights and wrongs of building a business. Now I'm sharing my strategies on my blog so you can take what you need to grow!



    The only difference between a big fashion business and a small fashion business is a different skillset. Everything your competitors know - you can learn. My online courses and masterclasses are specifically designed for ethical and sustainable fashion brands, labels and businesses, so you can build your skillset, level up, fast-track your success and increase your impact.
