[“][B]uy less, choose well, make it last,” is one of Vivienne Westwood’s (many) mantras I try to remind myself when perusing for my next purchase. Do I Actually Need This? Probably not. How is this made? And where? Thanks to the rise of conscious fashion, the industry is coming round to cleaning up its act.
An exciting new concept store in Hackney, SWIM XYZ, will delight feel good fashionistas, with its own eco-friendly approach to curation. To celebrate the launch they are hosting an exhibition on May 17th with designer Caitlin Price.The immersive event will showcase the CSM grad’s archive of sculptural silhouettes, asymmetric cutaways and the sophisticated translation of sportswear into evening wear that is synonymous with the London-based label (alongside a new range of styles created specifically for this show – all pieces being available to order).
