We’re pleased to have been selected to participate in this month’s edition of the Get Redressed Challenge. The initiative was launched by Hong Kong based charity Redress, whose mission is ‘to promote environmental sustainability in the fashion industry by reducing textile waste, pollution, water and energy consumption’. It’s a one-year project inciting consumers to re-think their wardrobes and to ‘Redress it, not bin it’. For August, they invited designers and brands to wear their favourite sustainable labels and share their outfits on social media. Renée took up the challenge for five days and here are the results!
Day 221: Renée is wearing our Two-Piece Blouse and a reclaimed denim skirt by Confined  Space. ‘I tend to buy timeless, classic pieces and pair them with statement accessories. This Ware London necklace, made from upcycled bicycle tyres, is a real conversation starter.’
Day 222: Digital printing is one of the best ways to get stunning, low impact prints as it doesn’t require solvents nor produce waste. It’s also great for small labels and independent designers as there are often no minimums. Renée is wearing a digitally printed dress by transparent luxury label ÆTHER, our Modular Jacket scarf and Hiro + Wolf recycled brass/aluminium bangles handmade in Kenya by a fairtrade producer.
Day 223: We’re taking you to Woolcrest Textiles, a fabric warehouse in East London where we source end of rolls and dead stock materials. Renée is wearing our Two-Piece Playsuit (worn back to front) with a Hiro + Wolf necklace handmade in Kenya and fairtrade canvas bag, and Cholesburys sandals made from discarded cotton and reclaimed leather.
Day 224: English weather is unpredictable, making it tricky to dress accordingly. Our Modular Jacket comes in very handy: with its detachable sleeves and scarf, you’ll be ready for rain or shine! Renée is also wearing a reclaimed and organic cotton dress by Riyka and Hiro + Wolf wooden bracelets made in Kenya by physically disabled artisans.
Day 225: ‘When travelling I like to pack versatile garments such as our Rectangular Piece. The polyester, made from recycled plastic bottles, is surprisingly soft, lightweight and crease free’. Paired with reclaimed denim short by Confined  Space.
