TREND-DODGING: The New Way to Shop Sustainably

Fashion director Jad Chilton believes fashion trend crazes are on the way out and shopping sustainably is in.

"Did you know that wearing clothing 50 times instead of five (a fast-fashion average) reportedly reduces carbon emissions by 400 per cent per item, per year?"

"No-one cares or even remembers if you wore the same dress last weekend. I know we tend to think everyone watches our style avidly, but the chances are they just see a nice dress, press ‘like’, and move on."

"Shopping sustainably might not have the most glamorous ring to it, but it sure does leave a more desirable number at the bottom of your bank statement, and it will, without a doubt, keep your conscience a little clearer."
