How is the fashion industry staying sustainable?

Many companies and brands are becoming more environmentally friendly and trying to reduce their impact on global warming. The fashion industry is no exception. From adapting their manufacturing methods to varying the materials that they use, what is the industry doing to reduce their carbon footprint? Trilogy Stores, retailers of premium designer clothing, investigate.
What's the issue?  Companies operating in the fashion industry have been under scrutiny recently for not being proactive in tackling global warming. The players in the industry should be working together to improve their production process and become more environmentally conscious. Currently, less than 1% of the material used to make clothing is then recycled into new clothing. There are other worrying facts that are associated with the industry too: -The estimated cost to the UK economy of landfilling clothing and household textiles is £82m per year.-People aren’t wearing their garments as much as they used to — th…

LFW with Katy Stephens:

Hello Everyone,

In today's post, I am going to be bringing you an exclusive interview with Katy Stephenson from The Rawdrobe, be sure to go and check out her blog for some more amazing fashion content. I asked Katy 4 questions about what it's like to attend LFW and her best tips for entering the fashion industry.

1) What designer has caught your eye during the week?
"I was at LFW to attend the Camilla Elphick Treasured Tales presentation and take some photos for their social media (and my blog of course!). I love Camilla Elphick shoes as it is but this collection was my favourite so far and there wasn't a single pair of shoes I didn't like! They were all so beautifully designed and I've walked away with an extremely long wishlist filled with the most amazing metallic boots, pretty pumps and the star of the show fur snowboots!" 

2) Have you got any tips for succeeding in the fashion industry?
"Fashion is such a difficult industry to get into so I think y…

Shop London Fashion Week Trends: River Island AD

Firstly I would like to thank you all for the amazing response to my last few fashion posts, it's crazy I never would have thought the posts could have done so well! Carrying on with the fashion theme, in today's post I will be going through high street alternatives to SS18 trends, featuring many amazing products from River Island. I have shopped with River Island for quite some time now, and I recently introduced my mum to them. They have many beautiful items to suit all trends, body shapes and age ranges.

1) Tailored Style:
Many designers such as Burberry, Lulu Guinness and Roberta Einer showcased many tailored pieces also including contrasting patterns. If this is the look for you, River Island has you covered with their alternate striped wrap midi dress. This can be paired with a leather jacket for a more casual look or a blazer for a more dressy one. In terms of shoes, some heeled mules have been all the rage the past few seasons, gaining inspiration from…

Dressing against the norm — what does it say about you / AD

From eccentric socks to dressing against our gendered expectations, many people push the limits of social norms when it comes to fashion. Research has shown that non-conformists can be viewed as being of a higher status and more competent than those who follow the rules of fashion. We take a look at what different clothing says about the wearer… Against gendered expectations: The line is becoming increasingly blurred between male and female clothing. Many people are speaking up, opposing the ideas that men and women should be dressed according to their sex. But, are you presenting yourself in a different way when you dress against the gendered expectations? Although fashionistas are saying that they don’t agree with gender rules, some research suggests that we’re still stuck in our old ways. Psychologists in New Jersey found that attitudes towards gender stereotypes hadn’t changed much between 1983 and 2014. There is an argument that shows that it’s favourable for women to cross the g…
