ACROSS THE POND
Not-for-profit associate director. Jewelry designer. Political campaigner. Amisha Ghadiali sure wears a lot of hats, whether it’s at her day job at the Ethical Fashion Forum, at work on her eponymous collection of socially responsible jewelry, or rallying for a better world at Think Act Vote.
“Having an ethical wardrobe is about working with what you have,” Ghadiali says.
The London-based triple threat made a conscious effort three years ago to buy only ethical fashion, while mixing it up with older pieces she already owned. In fact, Ghadiali has pledged to buy only 20 new items a year—and nothing with animal products like leather and suede, no less.
“For me, having an ethical wardrobe is about working with what you have,” she tells Ecouterre. “The worst thing you could do is go out and buy a whole new ‘eco’ wardrobe.” Follow her adventures in ethical clothing at Weardrobe.
