Ethical Glamour – the Wallis in Love collection by Sanyukta Shrestha

Ethical fashion has always been close to my heart. In a world where beauty is always within our reach, and clothes are disposable, I think it’s more important than ever that we think about where our clothes are made, who made them, what they’re made from, and where they’re going to end up.

Thankfully, ethical clothing is beginning to seep into the mainstream production with high street stores such as ASOS and H&M carrying ethical lines and online stores such as heloeco.com stocking diverse and inspiring ethical clothing that bust the previous assumption that ethical clothing meant something a bit ‘hippy’.

Sanyukta Shrestha is a London based designer who was born in Nepal, and her ethos of sustainability and fairness is the driving force behind her designs. The fabrics used are from ethical and fair trade manufacturers around the world. Now let’s get down to business. Are the dresses wonderful? Well, I’m going to jump right in and say that the 2013 collection ‘Wallis in Love’ is one of my favourite collections, not only from 2013, but ever! The collection is inspired by Wallis Simpson’s chic and sophisticated style. The innovative designs are glamorous in an old Hollywood kind of way, but are still modern and sexy.

I love how Kathryn, above, is as beautiful in the back as it is in the front. The slightly sheer back is extremely alluring, and it is offset perfectly by the button down front detail. The all-over cotton lace gives the dress a vintage touch.

Milca

The Milca dress is an exclusive in bridal design as the fabric itself is made using fabric technology using milk! I have absolutely no idea how that’s possible, but I do know that I’m extremely impressed!

My favourite dress of the collection might be the wonderful Wallis.

I’m always excited by dresses that find a balance between two possible extremes, and I think that this organic silk dress succeeds to strike a balance between demure and sexy. That’s every bride’s dream, right?

This was actually discussed a while ago and I was for it initially. Over time though it became apparent that the total community was getting involved with this project. Archiving this would be best for everyone.
