''Re-use don't re-buy'' -MyDerailed
Due to the craze being built up over the last few decades ''fast fashion' has unfortunately helped to make the textile industry one of the most environmentally damaging industries we have today.
''Nearly 70 million barrels of oil are used each year to make the world’s polyester fibre, which is now the most commonly used fibre in our clothing. But it takes more than 200 years to decompose.” – Forbes
The toxic chemical use in agriculture, for growing cotton there is a growing interest from larger companies in organic cotton however so far this only accounts for less than 2% worldwide.
What can we do to help now?
At #MyDerailed my goal is to bring high-quality vintage clothing back but with a #MyDerailed signature touch whilst still being affordable. Each piece is of the highest quality specially made, sourced or up-cycled, or specially selected high-quality vintage pieces we have saved.
Fast fashion can be defined as cheap, trendy clothing, but below is a small selection of beautiful pieces from #MyDerailed that wearing will have a positive effect on the environment rather than the wear and throw away effect we are seeing more and more.
1950's cheerleader sweater never worn teamed with a pop art skirt. Nobody else will be wearing the same!
We re-made this skirt at MyDerailed using A beautiful vintage silk scarf. This skirt is the only one in the world.
Hand-painted high quality thick black vintage skirt beautifully made.
At MyDerailed we say it's much better to have a closet full of high quality beautifully made garments rather than a lot of cheap fashion you won't want to wear again.
When you can be the best dressed in the room it always helps to make positive environmental decisions!
