#wardroberevolution and the evolution of my experiment
Fashion Revolution is an initiative to use the power of fashion to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes and accessories. People all over the world fight for better circumstances for all workers in the supply chain of fast fashion. A bunch of German fashion bloggers have partnered up celebrate a full month of Fashion Revolution to present you 24 great outfits.
Each one of us presents one outfit to demonstrate how bad ass fair fashion can look like. I have chosen an outfit that really represents all aspects of my little journey. I have simply started the experiment without a clue where I will end up and this outfit will give you a detailed insight in how I source my clothes today.
I am wearing a basic white Tee, bought in a local boutique in Mainz which is made out of Bio cotton and certified by the Fair Wear Foundation. A white basic shirt can always be combined in endless variations. The skinny high waist jeans are bought second hand at Kleiderkreisel and are made for American Apparel.
My gBook by germanmade. is my daily companion. I couldn't properly manage my days without the calendar included in the inside. Germanmade. is a brand that watches sustainability carefully.
Other than thrifting or buying new clothes, I continue to wear the clothes I have owned before the experiment. I have worn these shoes for several years now, never getting sick of them. The white pair of Vagabonds is made out of cotton and rubber.
And now coming to the masterpiece of vintage. The jacket has a cute story: I used to own a similar bomber jacket and wore it at our last Vintage Kilo Sale. One girl fell in love with my jacket, so I offered her to look for a similar one for me, only smaller in size. She has bought this red jacket and afterwards swapped with me. Both of us were happy, as I didn't look for one particular color, but rather the right size. So this piece is actually vintage and swapped :)
As I am usually in a hurry, my black AEP backpack is filled with everything I need on hand: laptop, chargers, notebook and plastic free treats to satisfy my ravenous appetite on the go. The backpack is made out of old plastic bottles and AEP sees sustainability as an integrative part of their business model. I have ordered it via the Moen online shop, a cozy boutique in Berlin.
Sustainable fashion can be a mix of all, - thrifted, swapped and bought clothes. Each one of us bloggers has found their personal interpretation of consuming clothes more sustainabily. The global initiative Fashion Revolution supports to create more awareness. I am super happy to be part of our German interpretation #wardroberevolution. I will keep you posted on everything we do with Darpdecade on April 24th for Fashion Revolution.
Here is a little snapshot of what I look like without posing haha.
