Well fashioned: eco style in the UK

Hemmings, Jessica (2006) Well fashioned: eco style in the UK Selvedge, 1, (12)

Record type: Article


Curated by the fashion designer and Senior Research Fellow at Chelsea College of Art and Design Rebecca Earley, this exhibition presents twenty-odd designers based in the UK who use ecologically sensitive approaches to the design, production and consumption of fashion. Earley’s own efforts as a designer in this field have not gone unnoticed (her PET recycled scarves won an award at the first Peugeot Design Awards in 1999) and in her role as curator she offers us a veritable little black book to eco fashion in Britain today. Fair trade practices, natural dyes and the use of sustainable materials such as hemp are likely to be the approaches the general public most readily associates with this emerging discipline. But one of the greatest strengths of Well Fashioned is its acknowledgement of many other insightful reactions to the waste and pollution the fashion industry, and its consumers, create.
