Future of Fashion: Transformation Through Collaboration
Further to our previous blog post about our Social Responsibility - we recently were invited to join one of our suppliers ASOS and their ethical team at an event in London and our MD was on one of the panels! The day was suitably called 'The Future of Fashion: Transformation through Collaboration'. With ASOS' help we have started our journey sourcing recyclable materials to make our products out of, we are only at the beginning of our journey but are going in the right direction.
Most of our SS19 collection is going to be made out of recyclable material - plastic bottles, and we are looking at new ways to expand this into more of our product areas.
We are also looking at how each of the South Beach HQ team can reduce our carbon footprint in daily life too - it doesn't just stop at a business level! Watch out for some of our 'environment saving' blogs in the next few weeks.
Here's a few pictures from the ASOS 'Future of Fashion' day...Venue: Worker Rights / Thread to Thread

Do you know who made your clothes?
Wouldn't you feel better knowing where and how your clothes were made?
