Update on my Vintage and Fair Trade fortnight so far
Friday, August 20th, 2010
Just thought I would give you a quick run down on my week so far wearing only Vintage and Fair Trade clothing…nearly half way through the fortnight now and I’ve been joined by some extremely stylish people
, and even Laura Bailey
“Totally Fair Trade!
Everyone loves check – I like this red and navy blue check in hand woven silk. I’m wearing it with an organic cotton T-shirt – both from People Tree.
This leather satchel is vintage and Fair Trade made by Afghan refugees about 10 years ago from People Tree Japan.”
“Vintage or Fair Trade?
I designed this from a prom dress out of a hand woven Fair Trade black sari inspired by vintage. So, I guess it’s both. Worn with united nude shoes, kind of 40’s. I love it!”
“This is a scarf! I put a slit in the middle and stiched under the arm to make a tunic out of a batik, handpainted, Fair Trade scarf – its a bit hippy, but I love wearing it with my charity shop jeans.”
“I’m wearing an organic cotton Fair Trade dress made by our lovely producer group Assisi Garments. It’s a sample for future collections so let us know if you like it!
The necklace and boots were from my local charity shop £3 for the necklaces and £25 for the boots.”
“1980s second hand tea dress in rayon. I bought it at Vintage at Goodwood yesterday worn with my recycled sari Terra Plana shoes.”
