The idea of ethical fashion is to consume less, and better. But sometimes it can be confusing when you are not aware of how to process. That is why I chose to tell you about 3 initiatives to ethical fashion that will tell you more about ethical fashion, while having fun.
Green is the New Black: follow the sustainable fashion tour
The first initiative I advice you to follow is Green is the New Black. It is a project launched by two students I’ve met, which purpose is to promote ethical and sustainable fashion. Mathilde and Léa have decided to go for six months to different countries in Asia and meet entrepreneurs who chose to support a sustainable fashion, respecting Mankind and environment. Follow the two Parisian ladies’s adventures in India, China, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and Cambodia and learn more about the actors who are participating in the growth of “slow fashion”! Through their Facebook, Instagram and website, they will convince you that fashion and environment can be reconciled.

Sloweare: personal shopper sessions
During an afternoon, SloWeAre will take you by the hand and lead you through the cutest ethical fashion boutiques in Paris!
The sessions are made of groups of ten, but you can also book your personal shopping session for you and your friends/family. They will help you find the clothing you always wanted, answer your questions, introduce you to a new shopping lifestyle, and even give you a few presents ;).
Are you ready for a new shopping experience? Sign up for the event on their website!
Fairwear: the MakeSense community that unites people
Fairwear is the MakeSense community that gathers citizens who want to act in favor of an eco-responsible and ethical fashion. The collective is driven by a dynamic crew that organize events to raise public awareness of ethical fashion. They organize cool events I have been to such as informal meetings in a bar to talk about solutions, or even what they call «catwalk-brunch» (translated from french), where they were over a hundred participants last April!
