Sustainability is very important to us, and we were very happy to receive a nice tip from a reader. "Have you heard of Christy Dawn?" No, we didn't have... but we wanted to know more about this new clothing brand. It claims to respect the environment and even to contribute to improve the ecosystem. Let's talk about Christy Dawn!
When 'sustainability' is not enough:
Sustainability is a relatively new concept and the fashion world is increasingly working with the concept. Due to the major global climate problems, ánd due to the corona crisis, there has been more awareness about the environment, or better said: Mother Earth! We have to stop wasting which has become standard in recent decades. Fashion is now about more quality, reusing materials, using deadstock materials and avoiding transport, unnecessary packaging. There is a growing aversion to mass consumption and disposable goods.
It is about time! But will it be enough to save our planet? There are also fashion houses who are even more inventive. We read how Stella McCarthey started working with the new vegan leather 'Mylo'. Made out of champions! And there are fashion houses that opt for special sustainable fabrics which are contribute to improve the environment.
The website of Christy Dawn is a great, inspiring example.
The Christy Dawn brand is not very well known yet, but it deserves attention and is a great inspiration for all of us. Christy Dawn mainly works with DEADSTOCK and regenerative cotton. This means working very locally with cotton producers who do not use harmful substances for the plants, there is a lot of manual work (locally) involved and materials are not wasted. The soil on which the cotton is planted is healthy and this is only achieved through the use of natural ingredients.
Furthermore, Christy Dawn is not sensitive to trends but focuses on the classics. Timeless designs which are not influenced by rapidly changing fashion trends. The clothes are all made on the basis of sustainability and, above all, a lot of love & craftsmanship.
It shows, the clothing and other products are beautiful, timeless and there is a lot of attention to detail.
Romantic dresses and sportswear
The webshop offers more than you initially think. The dresses, mostly romantic, predominate, but there is also clothing for sports, children and special sizes. Furthermore, shoes, mouth masks, beautiful toiletries and, above all, lots of lounge wear!
We admit it, the vlothes are expensive ... But we have a warm heart for Christy Dawn. We hope more and more people will choose quality clothing that is made in a fair and environmentally conscious way. Anything is better than the mass-production cheap clothes which are harmful to the environment.
Seamstresses have been making better choices for a long time because we make our own clothes and are aware of the materials and time which is needed to make them. The website from Christy Dawn is a great source of inspiration.
