97 Examples of Ethical Fashion

From All-White Ethical Fashion Lines to Retro Repurposed Purses

— June 4, 2015 — Fashion
These examples of ethical fashion prove that fashion can be cruelty-free. 100% sweatshop-free and environmentally safe, these fashion pieces allow the consumer to feel good while looking good.

The North Circular is a supermodel-founded company specializing in stylish knitwear while the 'Forgotten Shirts' brand creates causal t-shirts for a good cause.

Jewelry is also included in this range of fashion. Ethical engagement rings by Ingle & Rhode allow brides to promote conflict-free fashion while planning their big day. Following this initiative, the socially responsible Alkemie accessories are also ethically sourced and boast a bold and crafty aesthetic.

Ethical fashion is also seen in the high fashion world with brands like the Social Studio putting its designs on the L’Oreal Melbourne runways.
