We’re all in this together, right? All of us who love ethical fashion and are inspired by its ability to change the world are likely to achieve more if we work together. Whether sharing ideas via online forums or chatting with other conscious fashion fans via Instagram… personally, sharing the journey and connecting with others drives up both my inspiration and ambition.
Last year I was lucky enough to be invited to write for Mindless Mag. Editor is ethical fashion powerhouse Laurie Stewart and after a year of online success she was keen to put together a Special Edit annual. We had such a good chat about her journey, the creation of her magazine and the online courses she was keen to start up… about some brilliant internships and influencer takeovers she had set up, how she is creating information and opportunities for fashion students and essentially anyone who might be interested… she’s starting conversations and engaging people without preaching.
Laurie describes Mindless Mag as being about “FASHION + stuff that matters”. The piece I wrote comes under the Fashion + Mental health banner and is available now with the full magazine here.
Laurie and her writers fearlessly tackle other issues too: Fashion + Consumerism, Fashion + Climate Change and Fashion + Veganism. Flick through, be challenged or enlightened or enraged, whatever floats your boat… and of course lots more information is available on the Mindless Mag website.
Want to collaborate? I’d love to hear from you. I’m always looking for interesting freelance writing assignments and keen to act as a brand ambassador for ethical fashion brands. I also have a head full of ideas, so if you want to get started but aren’t sure how, drop me a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
