SUSTAINABLE SALES: How can we make 'Sustainable' Accessible?
In September of this year, Melbourne base author, journalist and critic, Nadia Bailey wrote this rather nice feature on Elle Evans for Shadows Magazine, so we’d thought we’d share it here. Accompanied by stellar photography and film by Adrian Lander and FilmByAlf Productions
CAPSULE WARDROBE: For a New Mum
I've written before about the dangers of the EPIC sale like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Boxing Day etc, but I do think small sales are really important for labels like Elle Evans for one very specific reason: Sustainable doesn't always = accessible.
SUSTAINABLE SALES: Black Friday
Capsule wardrobes are all about having a small collection of versatile pieces; maximising the use you get out of every piece in your wardrobe. You know that great pair of jeans you can wear with anything? Imagine if your whole wardrobe was like that!
CONSCIOUS COLLAB: Body Flow Yoga Work Out Bags
If there's one day that captures the needless consuming of fast fashion, and overspending on things we don't need it's Black Friday.
PRESS FEATURE: Good On You
This month I tackled a fun little side project for a friend of Elle Evans Swimwear, Body Flow Yoga. We love a good collab over here and jumped at the chance to work with our favourite yoga studio to design an exclusive Elle Evans Work Out Bag for their October 30 Day Challenge.
BEHIND THE SCENES - Hot In The Shade
This May I did an interview for Good On You the website and app that's focused on making the fashion industry transparent with their rating system letting customers "shop their values." Elle Evans received a GREAT ranking on their ethical sustainability scale.
ELLE ON SIZING: Anything but Standard
Our Shoot this year was photographed by the talented Sophie Costello of Pantomime Photography, beachy waves and bronzed by the always lovely Megan Everett and our gorgeous model Lucille Croft who braved the freezing cold pool on a chilly Melbourne day!
SUSTAINABLE FASION: The Truth is out there
As a designer, a lack of standards gives us flexibility and freedom to create a greater variety of sizes. We can make clothes that fit people who are short in the body, long in the legs, broad through the shoulders, wide through the hip etc,etc.
This diversity in our sizing is unique to Australia and I say we should revel in it.
Unfortunately the buzz-word that is sustainability is thrown around all too often. While those stereotypically ‘sustainable’ fabrics or garments do perhaps have a small footprint they surely don't draw a full and well rounded picture of what sustainability is and what it means to lovers of all things chic...
