In 2010, Westwood began her online diary “Get a Life” to discuss her involvement in fashion, politics, and the environment. She discusses how she only uses sustainable fabrics, as well as making quality products that focus on craft and heritage, people power, materials and processing, and reimagining waste.

His designs are inspired by memories of the girls and women he grew up with and strives to tell their stories through his fashion.

6.  Everlane

Everlane partners with the best, ethical factories around the world and works to source the finest sustainable materials.
