Beginner’s Guide to Sustainable Fashion

Part I.

My dear readers I decided to start a series of articles about sustainable fashion. It will be a bigger’s guide, where I will share with you my knowledge and some tips.

As you know I am passionate about fashion since I was a child, but I discovered a sustainability concept and dived into it, when I was setting up my fashion brand Désirée Fashion back in 2014. Ever since then I try to make conscious decisions when I buy clothes and I incorporated many changes in my buying habits. I am currently also taking a Sustainable Fashion Course and writing articles for a Brand Mooksmagazine, that is a digital magazine focused on luxury and circular economy.


In this short articles I will share my best tip for a Sustainable wardrobe for beginners.
