5 Global Brands that Combine Fashion and Sustainability


When it comes to fashion and sustainability, not all brands have what it takes to mix the two. When we talk about sustainable fashion (also known as eco-fashion), we're talking about a movement and a process that encourages change in fashion goods and the fashion system in the direction of greater ecological integrity and social justice. More than only fashion textiles or goods are addressed in sustainable fashion. It looks at how clothing is made, who makes it, and how long a product lasts before it ends up in a landfill. In the fashion industry, we'll be presenting 5 global brands that combine fashion and sustainability.


Mozh-mozh-sustainable-fashion

Mozh Mozh, Peru - Mozhdeh Matin founded her label in 2015 with the goal of collaborating with local craftspeople and preserving their skills. Her colorful pieces, dresses, and accessories – fashioned from alpaca, cotton, and wool yarns local to Peru, which were inspired by the concept of a circular economy, and they have truly set that wheel in motion, relying on homegrown weaving traditions. All of the brand's artists get their inspiration from their surroundings.


Maisonartc-Marrakech-Morocco

Maison ARTC, Morocco - Maison Artc is the five-year-old creative of Israeli-Moroccan designer Artsi Ifrach, who works as sustainably as possible from his Marrakesh workshop, combining his huge collection of vintage garments with local textiles such as handmade blankets from the Atlas Mountains. His approach is to create collectible one-of-a-kind artifacts that preserve the past alive in the present.

Lagos-space-program

Lagos Space Programme, Nigeria - Adeju Thompson's work for the Lagos Space Programme, bridges the gap between the past and the present, and it's mission-driven: fashion is the vehicle through which the designer, who studied in Wales and England, examines their non-binary identity and Yoruba background. Thompson, frequently works with precolonial forms and collaborates with experienced artisans using indigenous craft techniques such as natural indigo dyeing.


Duran-lantink-netherlands

Duran Lantink, Netherlands - Though some designers use moodboards to get ideas but Duran Lantink, who is based in Amsterdam, makes some of his designs after scouring the city on Tuesday nights, when locals leave items out on the street for others to take. "I never understood why I would use new materials when there are so many beautiful things around me," says Lantink, who began designing as a youngster by chopping up his mother's Gaultier and Margiela clothes. For his latest collection, he used a vintage Balmain dress, a 1960s fur coat, and a regiment's worth of army jumpers. He explores sustainability in all his works which is what most creative lack in the fashion world.



Bode, America - When Emily Adams Bode debuted her recycled quilted jackets on the menswear scene in 2017, the boyish design and homage to handmade struck a chord, but her regard for the things and stories of the past extended to quilts, garments, linens, tablecloths, and blankets. Customers can bring clothes to be fixed, or "kept," as Bode puts it, at her tailoring shop next door to her Hester Street flagship in New York. "We're showing our community how to make apparel that will last generations." we can note that the above depicts sustainability in fashion.
