Ethical fashion is fast becoming more and more desired by consumers in the developed world and after years of fashion consumption from unethical sources it seems that many people’s consciences are finally catching up with them. This article aims to highlight some of the best ethical fashion brands and feature premier ethical fashion designers who are taking ethical fashion online to the next level.
Before we continue let’s just ensure we have a full understanding of what ethical fashion actually is. If we use the dictionary definition of ethical it tells us that it is something that is morally right or morally acceptable. In terms of ethical fashion, that usually translates to products being made in morally acceptable conditions with workers being paid a fair wage, using materials that have been sustainably sourced and with goods being produced in safe conditions using environmentally friendly methods. It is this focus on social, commercial and environmental responsibility that makes ethical fashion companies so desirable for consumers and workers alike.
With the focus on ethical manufacturing and ethical fashion in replace of ‘fast fashion’ there have been a lot of ethical fashion companies competing for attention. With good ethical fashion brands in the USA, UK and indeed globally there is no shortage of companies to choose from and you can easily find something that suits your style.
