There’s been a shift in the fashion industry recently and you may have picked some of the movement up in the news about Sustainability in manufacturing. In this article we want to show you the importance of this Eco makeover within fashion and how we at Blue Water Clothing are making it our goal to provide our customers with stylish and contemporary Eco fashion brands.
Consciousness and Comfort
Whilst we know style and comfort is paramount were certain we can introduce you to some beautiful and intricate collections to convince you that natural, renewably sourced fibers – such as organic cottons, hemp, bamboo and even nettle are the way forward. Up until recently synthetic fabrics such as polyester, acrylic and nylon have been dominating the fashion industry. As a result the environmental impact of these fibers has become much more significant as they are derived from petrochemicals, meaning their production depends on declining reserves of oil and gas and they are not renewable. Also, their production is energy-intensive, the fibers don’t biodegrade and they are not easy to recycle. To combat this brands are now looking at these more renewable and Eco friendly fabrics such as Tencel and Bamboo to create beautifully soft garments.
Style for you and the environment
After recently visiting several buying shows across the uk and Scandinavia and with hours and hours of researching what we feel is a Blue Water Brand we are eager to introduce you to Australian brand ELK. Their sculptural accessories, hand-made leather and ready-to-wear collections define their artful vision while their devotion to ethical practices has endured them as a leader in the practice of responsible innovation for the fashion industry, oh and the collection is amazing!
This Autumn we’ve seen alot of caramels and Jade greens through our ranges but we have fallen in love with the denim culottes. Easily styled with a thin knit and accessorized with a chunky necklace and bracelet, dress them up or down with white pumps or a thick soled brogue. See our featured image.
