Ethical Fashion Influencers
Laura Young is a fashion blogger from Scotland, who is aiming to live life with as little waste as she can. She buys her products from producers who are treated fairly, and endeavours to know where her clothes are coming from.
“Some people will tell you that once you wear an outfit or take photos in it, you shouldn’t be seen wearing it again, but I completely disagree… If something looks good on you why not enjoy it instead of buying into hyper-consumerism that leads to pollution.”
“Style is Queen but fit is King! Don’t follow trends. Dress to compliment your body and werk it!”
Kat from the US has been blogging since 2009, and is passionate about seeing change in labor trafficking and women’s issues.
She uses ethically produced clothing to create her chic and colorful looks on Instagram and on her blog, and has tons of great ideas.

This month, we are putting a spotlight on some independent black-owned beauty and skincare brands.
Sadly, it is all too common for black women to go shopping for make up, only to find that mainstream brands do not cater to their skin colour. Many of the brands on the highstreet specialise in shades for lighter skin tones.
We have found some black-owned beauty brands designed by black women for black women. This week, we would like to present the Afro Hair and Skin company. This award winning brand uses only natural and organic ingredients to create their products. These are designed to cater specifically to the needs of textured hair and melanin rich skin in the best possible way.

Last year, Chi, the Founder of Dinky Mix shared with us her incredible story of how her experiences shaped her decision to start a business with an important message… the result was a three-part interview that we featured on our website.
Proud of her Nigerian heritage, Chi wanted to instil the same sense of pride into her children, and to affirm their cultural heritage and that of many other children.
So she put her creative talent to good use, and created the kind of art she couldn’t find anywhere else. The result of this is Dinky Mix, a fun, playful and empowering brand of print artwork for kids to hang on their bedroom walls.
