One of the best bits of working in retail is going to trade fairs and discovering what's coming up next - under the radar brands, new fashion trends and changing consumer behaviour, which all comes together to form a preview of what the fashion industry will look like in the future. So last Friday, I was very excited to be able to attend the newly revamped Bread & Butter - originally a trade show for buyers and industry professionals, but now transformed into a "trend show for everyone", complete with sneak peaks of upcoming collections and various interactive experiences.

1 Hour DIY: Culottes


Culottes have been on the fashion map ever since Victoria Beckham wore them to end her Spring/Summer '14 show back in New York in 2013, but it wasn't until this year that the trend really seemed to kick off, reflecting the current mood for relaxed tailoring and easy-going silhouettes. I wasn't keen initially, but inspired by street style and my classic white Vejas, I thought I'd give it a try the ethical fashion way - with an old pair of trousers and a spare 60 minutes! This is a really easy DIY to try at home that works to shorten any kind of trousers, plus you don't even need to use a sewing machine if you're a beginner.

Eco Sessions in Berlin: My Main Takeaways


Last month I attended the Berlin edition of Eco Sessions, a series of panel discussions set up by Magnifeco founder Kate Black, which explores all topics relevant to ethical fashion and sustainability. I'd spotted the the event on social media a couple of days before and thought it sounded interesting, so I dragged my boyfriend along to upcycling and alternation store Bis es mir vom Leibe fällt (literally, "until it falls off my body") in the beautiful but relatively expensive district of Schöneberg.
