Choose Happiness + Fashion Revolution Week

Posted on April 22 2019

It's Fashion Revolution Week. When I watched 'The True Cost' for the first time, around 4 years ago now, it changed everything for me. If you haven't yet seen it, I highly recommend. Once watching it, there is no going back, no denial, no turning a blind eye. 

 

 

I had produced one collection at this point - excited to be a young designer straight out of university. I was making whatever I wanted to and I was getting attention, nominated for Young Designer of The Year and multiple articles in local newspapers. Did I know where my fabrics where made? No. Did I know where the cotton had been picked and if the pesticides used on the farm had caused deaths, cancers or suicide to the people working there? No. Did I know for sure that the factory in Bangladesh that had made some of my t-shirts had health and safety regulations in place for their workers and weren't outsourcing cheap labour? No. 

Overnight my brand changed. I contacted all suppliers asking questions. Those that didn't get back to me or didn't have answers, I stopped using. Its been a slow and educational journey for me and my customers since then, and it continues to be. 

Just in time for Fashion Revolution Week we have launched our latest collection 'CHOOSE HAPPINESS'. This is the collection that I am most proud of.

'Choose Happiness' SS19 is centred around positive choices, self love and care and finding your inner child's freedom and happiness. 
It draws inspiration from early memories of learning to hand stitch and to always being comfortable enough to go out and play at any time! 

🌎It is made completely from 100% certified Organic Cotton - meaning no pesticides, less water usage and a healthier and safer working environment for the Cotton Farmers. 

🌎It is made with raw edge pockets that can easily be repaired or strengthen.

🌎It is made with embroidered patches that can be repaired or taken off to extend the garment lifecycle. 

🌎All scraps of fabric are used for our zero-waste accessories or given to local craft makers for their own projects. 

🌎Every garment is made with love, care and precision in our studio in Scotland by a team paid above the London Living Wage.

    ig_un,

    Want to be Instagram popular?

    If you are like me, you’ve trawled Instagram, wondering “how do these darn people on Instagram get so rich and famous”?

    Picture this: You wake up early Friday, even before your alarm does.

    You spring up to check your cell.

    Flipping to Instagram.

    You‘re flabbergastered at what is waiting for you: Over 832 likes on a single one of your pictures! There, you see a a huge amount of likes on your pictures—over 832 on a single photo alone.

    Heading to the kitchen, you put the kettle on for some coffee and check your Instagram while you wait.

    Presto! Another 49 likes.

    Buzz—a message pops into your inbox from a follower. They’re asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

    As you read it, you begin to smirk. It is a amazingly hot person, and they love your posts.

    Within minutes, your cell buzzes AGAIN.

    Wow, ANOTHER message. You close your cell and throw it in the bag. Time for the gym.
    Anyways, you get the point. This is the life of an Instagram celebrity. I should know, because I’ve made many of them.

    My job is to take people from Instagram no one to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds stupid, but results do not lie.)

    Imagine if you could raise your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    It is not complicated to do, although almost no one does. Just check out our website. There, you’ll learn how to garner Instagram likes and followers like mad…without even trying.

    In just minutes after posting, you have your images piled with likes.

    If you’re anything like our other customers, you will have a great chance of hitting the “Top Post” section in a very short time.

    Sound too good for reality? Here’s what you have got to do to get a taste:
    1. Click https://jabbertune.surf
    2. Plug in your Instagram username.
    3. The three pictures you posted last will get 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

    Being a regular on that page will supercharge your growth 10x, easy. You know where the answer to fame is. Now reach for it. Are you ready?

    Happy image-uploading.
