Conscious Consumption

Conscious Consumption

The fast fashion era is approaching its end. It seems that more and more consumers are taking strides to make thoughtful, educated decisions around their shopping habits. Personally, I’m fully on board with this movement, and find myself gravitating less towards name and faceless brands, rather ones that are personal, meaningful, and conscious.

Below are three ethical fashion brands who check all of these boxes that I’m currently loving!

Live Fashionable @livefashionable

Jewelry and accessories made locally and globally by women who have overcome extraordinary circumstances like prostitution, homelessness, addiction and overall lack of opportunity.
