Ethical fashion. It's a topic that continues to gain traction and with good reason. Described by the Ethical Fashion Forum as "an approach to the design, sourcing and manufacture of clothing which maximises and benefits people and communities, while minimising impact on environment".

The term 'ethical fashion' might conjure up images in your head of simple, but to be honest, boring clothing. But we've come so far in terms of design and technology, from where we once were.
