Yesterday I told you about the Greenshowroom, a trade fair for ethical fashion labels. As you might know from some of my previous posts, I did some first steps towards the promotion of ethical fashion, and now that I've discovered these amazing brands from all over the world, I'm even more determined to make my closet a bit more sustainable. Especially German-speaking bloggers have been doing a great amount of research on fair fashion labels, but I haven't discovered any of these brands on a fair fashion blog before. That's why I regard it as my duty to share these labels with you, as they are the perfect proof that ethical fashion hasn't got to be boring at all.
Currently you can find the s/s 2016 collections in most of these shops but I was lucky enough to already see the s/s 2017 collections at the Greenshowroom fair. So even if you might not fall in love with a brand immediately, I assure you it's worth watching it in the future as green fashion will become more and more fashion-forward.
