With London Fashion Week descending on Somerset House this week, I’ve been super keen to find out the latest in upcycled fashion from Estethica – an exhibition of ethical designers founded by The British Fashion Council, now in it’s 11th season. Estethica was set up to showcase the work of cutting edge designers who demonstrate their commitment to working sustainably. All designers must adhere to at least one of the following design principles in the production process: fair trade and ethical practice; the inclusion of organic fibres; the use of upcycled and recycled materials and fabrics. Here is a selection of some of the fabulous designers involved this year. Pictured above: From Somewhere by Orsola de Castro (co-founder and curator of Estethica).
