My Personal Combination Of Fashion, Revolutions and Sustainability

Are you working within revolutions and sustainability? First off, if you haven’t been introduced to Fashion Revolution you should check out their manifesto. Fashion revolution week is what I would call a ‘fashion industry bashing’ that’s needed. This is where the social good fashion rockers look at the fashion industry and sustainability as a whole and talk greenwashing and where it’s more than allowed to ask ‘who made my clothes’.

Remember to participate on the 24th of April by reversing your clothes and use the #whomademyclothes hashtag. We need more conversation starters and activist statement.

reduce, reuse, recycle, rethink, retweet

Apart from giving a shoutout to the Fashion Revolution Week, which you have to be a part of, I want to dive deeper into fashion and sustainability. So, the fashion industry is one of the heaviest emitters of CO2 in the world. Are you ready for my take on it ? here you go:

Revolutions and Sustainability: Reduce, Recycle, Reuse, Rethink AND Retweet

reduce, recycle, reuse, rethink, retweet

You need to be able to update your skillset. I wrote about how to live like our grandparents a couple of days back. In addition to that I think it’s vital that we all:

Think about what we are purchasing. How are we spending our money?

Think about how we can reuse the stuff we have.

Think about how we can recycle goods that have been worn out.

Rethink the way we act around materials

And then share (retweet) the whole bunch to your network and beyond as inspiration for the world to see.

A rocking trick to reuse more:

I am biggest on reusing and sharing. And I want to announce something: I have gotten my first gig as a style ambassador for the startup ‘WISHI’. Yes, I know what you’re thinking. No, I will not become a fashion blogger. But I am looking good even at the end of my ’20s’ and we need more people preaching and practicing fashion revolutions and sustainability. SO I will carry that torch as well.

WISHI is something I have been crazy about for half a year. A couple of weeks back, the founder asked if I would join as an ambassador and I said ‘Yes – if I can focus on sustainability, 2nd hand and vintage’. So that’s what I have been doing. The featured image on this article, is all 2nd hand clothes – apart from the t-shirt.

I have become a real bargain hunter online for the clothes that I want to be a part of my style and WISHI helps me out with that. In addition to WISHI for style advice, I am using Gem which is vintage clothes search engine. So these are two of my favorite tools to elevate my style.

P. S. If you want to join WISHI, let me know – I have a special gift for you then.

Branding

What do you want to be when you grow up?

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a veterinarian. So badly, that I worked for a veterinarian for a week and then found out that I wasn’t going to be a veterinarian because I passed out a couple of times.

Then I wanted to be a rockstar. My vision of an ideal, was to be sitting on a couch and talk about rockn’roll.  And I became an alternative kind of rockstar, because of henrietteweber.com. A business rockn’roll chick/ avantgardist who rocks brands and preaches rockbandism. And who is a brand in her own way.

Sometimes things change when we grow up a bit more. These days all I want is a  for smile from the rockstar in the mirror and a firm believe that “I rock”.

But what else do I dream about being in my lifetime? We grow up a little every day right ? So how do I want every day to feel?  To me it’s very much the same with brands. Branding happens by the minute. It happens from a core of dreams, whether they are business, style, idea or entrepreneurial dreams. Growing up can be a statement.  a silent revolution against what’s going on in the world.

But me… I try to dress myself to match some of this:

Act like this:

thou shall not take shit

Be brave like this:

Feeling so happy being in a world where creativity can amount to this (and you can purchase it!):

And when I become more grown up – I will be rocking this:

How about you? Do you know what you want to be when you grow up?
