TRASHION FORWARD - A BOOK ON THE RISE OF SUSTAINABLE LUXURY

Just over 2 years ago I started a lifestyle blog focused on sustainable fashion, design and more recently travel. With Trashion Forward I am supporting the rise in sustainable luxury by featuring industry thought leaders and showcasing some amazing pieces from around the world many of which have been made from trash such as the dress in the front cover image which is made of old Vogue magazines. In addition a portion of published proceeds will go to Fashion Revolution, a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry.

BACKGROUND

Me & Mom
Me & Mom

My interest in sustainable fashion and design started at an early age. You see I grew up as the youngest of 5 and although I did not realise at the time my mother introduced me to the concept of sustainable fashion by occasionally treating me to clothing my older brothers had outgrown or no longer wanted. Over the years I have continued to make sustainable purchases in line with my lifestyle and through my work with the blog I have been fortunate to discover and work with some amazing brands from around the world, learnt about their story and how they are driving change in the fashion and design industry.

CONTRIBUTORS

Po-Zu, a company that uses various innovative and sustainable materials including  Pinatex 'made from pineapple' to make stylish shoes. "I support initiatives such as Trashion Forward as I think it's really important to raise awareness of issues surrounding ethical fashion and footwear, hopefully you will support it too." Sven Segal, CEO & Founder, Po-Zu

Bernardo Urbina Design, a designer creating high end furniture from waste. "Being sustainable is certainly the way forward and I am pleased to be supporting Kenny in his mission to showcase the rise in sustainable luxury by featuring various brands from around the world and I hope you will do the same." Bernardo Urbina, Founder, Bernardo Urbina Design

Bottletop, a company blending design with technique across cultures to create luxury fashion accessories using recycled materials such as can ring pulls.

Felder Felder, an innovative and forward thinking clothing brand who recently celebrated their 10th anniversary by making a sustainable carbon fibre dress entirely from car parts.

Trash4Flash, a Greek brand making one of a kind innovative jewellery and accessories from upcycled materials. 

Emeric Chantier, a French sculptor that evolves plans into animals, humans and objects that reflect society.

There are 36 brands and 4 thought leaders from 16 countries all of whom share a common purpose centred around helping to create a more sustainable future, many of them I have worked with over the last 2 years on Style & Trashion such as PoZu, Bernardo Urbina Design and Elvis & Kresse who make luxury lifestyle accessories from reclaimed materials such as decommissioned fire-hose. Others I am working with for the first time in Trashion Forward having become enthused by their work and passion for what they do. 

In addition to the beautiful unique designs featured by the brands, the thought leaders have been interviewed to share amongst other things their impact on the industry and where they see the future of sustainable fashion and design. Each of these contributors have been asked to share their answer to one question……what is your earliest memory of sustainable fashion or design ? Also, one of the co-founders of Fashion Revolution shares a little about the positive impact this amazing global movement is having on the fashion industry.
