On the surface, the Queen of haute couture may seem like an unlikely comparison. But if you look beyond, you will realize, Sustainable Style is to fashion what Beyoncé is to the world of music - a luxury that is enduring and endearing. Leaving a lasting impression, Beyoncé and Sustainable Styling gives us goals worth working towards. Sounds intriguing? So, without much ado, let us channel our inner Queen Bey in styling!
Pro-Tip: Your clothing is not a trendy album you will hear on repeat for two weeks and forget about it forever. It is something you will come back to again and again because of its timeless appeal. The key to being unforgettable is to buy one right piece that nails the look, rather than five almost right pieces that don’t fit and won’t last.
Conscious fashion choices help improve the fashion biosphere as a whole – from the production process to labour conditions. Most of us agree that as a society we need to develop sustainability and elevate environmental impact. But what is sustainable fashion, exactly? Is it supporting local designers? Is it using organic fabric? Is it renting clothes? Although a buzzword, the sustainable fashion movement is still evolving. It, therefore, helps to focus on doing better one step at a time.
Pro-Tip: Introduce yourself to sustainable brands, understanding their manufacturing practices and sustainability standards. When uncertain ask questions. Most brands have enough information on their websites and social media pages. If you need to know more, do reach out to them for a better understanding. Create a minimalist yet imaginative collection that can be used throughout the day from client meets to social settings. Follow this old maxim by Yves Saint Laurent, “Fashion fades, but style is eternal.”
