Ethical Fashion from Old Clothes-stuffs

The Evening Standard reports tonight that ethical fashion label From Somewhere goes to F&F at Tesco today.  Jersey off-cuts that would otherwise have gone to waste are creatively refashioned into body-con dresses. 
The on-trend styling will appear to a younger market (Peaches Geldof is reportedly a fan), but the pieces lack the longevity of classic vintage items that one lovingly wears over the years.  I fear these ‘fashionable’ clothes will be unfashionable within the year, if the cheap fabrics don’t fade beforehand and tarnish their appeal. 
This collection is one that has simply slowed the transit of cast-off fabrics to their final resting place, rather than completely re-routing them away from land-fill.  For more lasting pieces, From Somewhere’s regular range is a joy to explore.
