sustainable workwear clothing

A rising number of customers are making their purchasing choices based on the sustainability credentials of the brand, opting for recycled pieces rather than throwaway items. 

When it comes to fashion, this means buying cruelty-free outfits that have been made using recycled plastic, cork, rubber and even wood. 

Earlier this week, the fashion event of the year took place. However, just a handful of stars used The Met Gala 2024  as an opportunity to wear green outfits.

Pop star Charli XCX was one such celebrity, hitting the red carpet wearing a distressed dress that had been made from T-shirts from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. This has been good publicity for brand Marni, helping it to make a name for itself in the environmentally friendly fashion space.

Demi Moore also wowed the crowds in a recycled gown, wearing Harris Reed’s floral structured dress. The frock, which took 11,000 hours of handcrafting, was made out of vintage archival wallpaper. 

Prada also showcased a sustainable frock at The Met Gala, dressing actress Amanda Seyfried in a floor-length silver gown. It was made using leftover deadstock fabric, so nothing was left to waste.

Prabal Garang and Boll & Branch, better known as a bedding brand, joined forces for the event, creating an eye-catching yellow gown for tennis sensation Maria Sharapova. 

Its green credentials come from the fact the organic cotton was ethically sourced from farms in India. 

Lastly, environmental campaigner Stella McCartney made sure Cara Delevingne and Ed Sheeran wore clothes from her collection, which are all made from 100 per cent sustainable materials. 

It is thought the fashion industry accounts for ten per cent of global carbon emissions.

This is why it is essential people make greener choices with their clothes, from choosing sustainable workwear clothing to buying recycled high-end fashion.
