Regardless of whether the clothes are used or not, I follow the rule of 5 new items per year. It’s a tangible way to understand how much you need to cut your consumption to stay within the fashion industry’s ‘carbon budget’.
Maria Sole, founder of So-Le Studio
Recovering and upcycling leather scraps from factories is one of the central pillars of So-Le Studio. But to have a greater impact on climate change, we want to think and implement more measures to reduce our carbon footprint. As an example, we aim to tailor our production to the train journey between our factory in Tuscany and our studio in Milan.
Alex Kessler, Junior Fashion Editor, UK trend
There’s no denying I have a lot of clothes – I’m obsessed with dressing up. I’ve discovered some items that can be worn frequently if properly modified. Phoebe Philo-era Celine’s silk blouse was adorned with coffee stains and cigarette burns on the sleeves, and baby-blue Marc’s Jacobs cardigan unleashed a giant hole under the pit (what a would be fun). In 2023, he vows to restore his treasured work and bring everyday style back to the forefront of his repertoire.

This is a huge challenge and mindset shift for both our team and our clients, but fortunately there is a great deal of innovation happening in bio-based alternatives.
Kate Lloyd, Acting Features Editor, UK trend
As someone who has just moved house and is currently short on items such as desks, dining tables, and floors, I feel the urge to break up the fast-fashion equivalent of hauling household items.

Hurr Founder Victoria Prew
I’m on a mission to eliminate unnecessary food waste. By simply focusing on the amount of food you buy, cook, and consume, you can significantly reduce what you throw away. I’m also an avid Olio user. Olio is the app that helps millions of people give away food and other household items, all for free, to their neighbors. I also want to keep learning. The more we learn about the climate crisis, the more motivated we are to make a difference. It means not surrounding yourself with hateful scientific reports and headline triggers, but rather understanding the topic as a whole and focusing on small actions you can take in your daily life. I love following @earthrise.studio. This is the most amazing storytelling platform that demonstrates how we can all play our part.

My environmental resolve is to do the best I can. Eating less meat and following your doctor’s advice and working towards a vegetarian diet.

Avoid petroleum-based fabrics such as polyester, nylon, and lycra, and look for eco-friendly alternatives, especially sportswear. Avoid single-use plastic whenever possible. Bike or use public transport instead of driving, and book an electric car if you need a taxi. Always remember to turn off the lights when you leave the room.keep spreading the message in my english trend column, on my podcast green dream, in my newsletters, and at conferences. There is no reason to create environmental anxiety. The more useful information and tips you have, the more sustainable you can live.

Traceability is key to making better and more responsible choices when it comes to jewelry. I always love watermelon he loves the juicy color combination of tourmaline and I picked a beautiful one from the Cruzeiro mine in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Not only do we know where our gemstones come from, but even better, many environmental and social responsibility initiatives are in place at this family-owned mine. Instead, Cruzeiro uses an underground cut-and-fill method to avoid land erosion and water pollution. On the ground, we protect 160 acres of Indigenous land and provide safe and healthy working conditions for our communities. Given the striking vibrancy of the stone itself, who better than Alice Chicolini to turn it into a gemstone? I make it using gold from the broken knick-knacks in my jewelry box, which I melt and recycle locally. be kept to a limit. What do you think about the cost per wear, what you wear every day and forever?

Alice Newbold, Executive Fashion News & Features Editor, UK trend
This time last year, I had no idea what DockATots were, and the Snoos sounded like a controversial shoe to rival Crocs. The world has changed. I’ve tentatively stepped into the world of new-age baby products, but there’s one thing I’m sticking with: clothes. It’s not easy to buy just stuff (hello baby mori). There’s a way around all the newness, like a friend obsessed with Mini Rodini and his stash of OshKosh on eBay. The real job is to convince family members to hit pause when they click to buy, in the name of cuteness.
