Have you ever wondered what goes behind fashion labels? Things like, "Who made my clothes?" or "Where does it come from?" or if animals and people suffered so you could "rock" that outfit? You see, we should all start reading fashion labels carefully and performing brand researches just like we do with grocery products when we go shopping. Some words to look for are: vegan (always best guys! Nowadays vegan leather looks and feels just like genuine leather but is more compassionate), fair-trade (this means that the hands that made the product were paid a fair wage and provided with humane and stable working conditions), eco-friendly (when a product is made from natural and recycled materials, the brand usually provides that info on the labels), organic (no harmful pesticides were used to grow or produce the fabric or material the product was made of). These questions and words to look for are part of today's Fashion Revolution movement. It's 2016, guys. There's honestly no excuse not to shop wisely and consciously. Every dollar spent can make a huge difference by showing the world and fashion companies what you stand for. Your purchase creates demand, the demand guides the supply, and the production of the supply determines the future of people, animals and our world. Make sure you're supporting the right companies. xx
Here's a fair-trade and vegan look for all my bohemian soulmates!
