What others see as waste, London-based label, Fanfare, see as a starting point. The brand was founded by Esther Knight who, after over a decade of working as a fashion buying for high-end and high street brands, saw how desperately the industry needed to change in order to protect both the planet and the people who make garments.

‌And so, Fanfare was born, a circular brand that encourages customers to never throw a garment away to end up in landfill, but rather repair, repurpose or pass on. They use responsible fabrics that have been rescued from landfill and given a second chance or innovative sustainable fabrics that have less impact on the plant. Every garment is handcrafted by Fanfare’s own small team in East London or by one of their trusted suppliers just a short distance away, guaranteeing a transparent supply chain.

‌Heroes of the collection include incredible repurposed organic denim in a plethora of shapes, summer-ready linen co-ords and reconstructed knitwear.

Conscious Citizen

Who doesn’t love a cosy trackie when working from home or running errands come the weekend? If you’re in the market for some new comfies but want to shop with a more conscious mindset, check out Conscious Citizen.

Founded by two friends, Maria and Yulia, Conscious Citizen is on a mission to change the mindset of shopping sustainably. They do this through the brand’s circular pillars, that promote everything from being a Concious Citizen and engaging and respecting the environment around you, to encouraging shoppers to repair, resell and recycle before getting rid of garments.‌

The collection is small, naturally, but the pieces are so versatile. Take their grey marl sweatshirt, for example, super cosy and comfy, It’s ideal for WFH days but it also has a great faded acid wash and perfect oversized shape, making it great for pairing with tailored trousers and big chunky hoops for the office.

And, we can confirm, they are amongst some of the comfiest sweats we’ve ever tried.

Seeds of Colour

If you’re into that ‘no-makeup makeup” look or are simply wanted to clean up your makeup bag, literally and in a more eco-conscious way, check out Seeds of Colour.

‌The plant-based makeup collection is powered by the colour of nature, taking fruits and vegetables from the British countryside and transforming them into nutrient-rich botanical pigments to use on your skin.

‌The collection is fully inclusive with shades to suit all skin tones and the balms are ideal for adding a flush of colour to cheeks, defining eye lids or pepping up lips with a natural subtle stain.

We’re also loving their clever tube squeeze (a steal at £4) that ensures you get every last drop out of your Seeds of Colour tube. Simply slide the key in at the bottom of the aluminium tube and twist – it’s rather satisfying to use too.
