Conscious shopping is no longer a tedious task of shifting through rail upon rail of vintage fashion or checking clothes labels for a pesky 8% wool. There are some great sustainable and vegan online shopping platforms out there that are curating our conscious closets for us. Shopping for labels with a conscious has never been easier. These three UK based online stores promote the very best of sustainable luxury fashion, doing the rail shift work for you. In no particular order…
NO.1 – REVE – EN – VERT
Reve En Vert has been built following four ethics; sustainability, quality, respect and longevity. Cora Hilts and Natasha Tuker founded REV in response to the evolving nature of contemporary style, which was fast becoming a bit to consumptive and trend-based for their tastes – I can relate! REV supports independent designers who are improving the standards of the fashion industry through stylish . This online platform is all about timeless and long-lasting forever pieces – putting forwards brands that are challenging the fast-fashion system for environmental and social well-being.
NO.2 – THE ACEY
The Acey brings sustainable fashion to the masses through a consciously curated virtual store. Holly Allenby, Acey’s founder, identified a need for a go-to destination for clothing that combined both ethics and aesthetics whilst she was working with leading social enterprise TOMS. The Acey celebrates brands that are doing business better, be that working towards reducing social or environmental impact. The website now has 26 contemporary and cool designers on it’s books, offering up sleek styles for the mindful consumer.
NO.3 – LUVA HUVA
Luva Hava is a beautiful and ethical alternative in lingerie and loungewear. A group of three women and one whippet, named Millie, inhabit the Luva Huva studio in Brighton. This small team works on all aspects of the production from design, pattern making and sewing through to the final wrapping and packing of finished pieces. Luva’s core collection is built from natural and ecologically considerate fabrics such as; bamboo, hemp, organic cotton, soy and tencel. Every piece in the collection is made to order, but this brand is worth waiting in line for.
