Stella McCartney says fashion industry is unfashionable

The talented fashion designer – Stella McCartney told the press that fashion industry is unfashionable and needs to be more green to save the planet. She mentioned that the fashion industry is one of the most harmful industries in the world and laws need to be in place to ensure the industry is more sustainable. Stella McCartney met with ten CEOs from the world’s biggest companies in Cornwall to discuss the climate crisis and how to ensure fashion is more green.

Stella McCartney says fashion industry is unfashionable

Here are some excerpts from Stella McCartney’s interview with Sky News –

“I don’t think they know that 150 million trees are cut down for viscose. Whereas I’ve managed to source a sustainable wood pulp in Sweden.

I have always known the fashion industry was doing more harm than good but I looked the other way for many years but no more. It is terrifying to read about the damage the industry is doing to the planet. Sustainable fashion is the way to go and if you are not sure how to go about it, start with buying less, and buying better.

“I don’t think people know anything about it. So for me to be there with these world leaders is really exciting, but also very terrifying because I’m desperate to get across some of the facts and realities of how unfashionable the fashion industry is.”

“I’m kind of here to encourage these world leaders to really look at laws, look at policy change, how to incentivise the young designers of tomorrow, the young fashion houses.”

I hope major changes are made in the fashion industry. Also, I hope sustainable fashion designers are not penalised with huge taxes for going green. It is a shame that anything sustainable is so expensive. It really should be the other way round.

What are your thoughts on sustainable fashion? Do you agree with Stella McCartney about the fashion industry being so unfashionable?

 

 

 

Style Icon: Quad Webb

The stylish Quad Webb is the style icon for the month of April. For those who don’t know who this fashion queen is, Quad Webb is an author, chef, entrepreneur, talk show host, known for featuring on the reality show – Married to Medicine. I think this style icon is one of the most stylish women on the reality show. She always looks great and I really the pieces and accessories I see her rocking. Quad Webb knows the power of style and she makes a statement every time.  That is why she is the Style Icon of the month on Fashion and Style Police.

Married to Medicine

I was not a huge fan of Quad as a full cast member on Married to Medicine. I found her very dramatic and annoying but I must confess I kind of miss seeing her regularly on the show now that she is only featuring as a friend of the show. She definitely made the show a lot more interesting. I miss her entertaining scenes and seeing her and Greg together. It is a shame they couldn’t get along.

The white piece Quad Webb has on above is a beautiful. It looks amazing on her. I love the accessories she has on as well. They really complement the outfit and her makeup is simply flawless. Do you agree?

This black outfit here is another piece that looks fantastic on Ms Quad. I love the fact that it is all black and sparkly. The makeup and hair look fab. Her entire look is on point. I am loving it. This style icon is one woman that looks great in all black or all white. She makes style look so effortless. What do you think of this look?

Which of Quad’s looks do you prefer? The white or the black? Do you watch Married to Medicine? Who is your favourite cast member?

 

 

What is fashion and am I fashionable?

What is fashion? That can be defined in many different ways. I see fashion as modern/change, which isn’t surprising as the French word for fashion is La Mo, which is the short form of la modernité, which also means modernity. Fashion is what we see on the high street, the fashion magazines, the top designer stores, and on the runaway. It changes every season and to stay on top of fashion means to literally keep updating your wardrobe with every new collection that pops up. How possible is that especially now with all that we have going on?

Are we supposed to focus on fashion or style?

To be honest, I have never really been fashionable. Instead, I prefer having a capsule wardrobe that shows off my personal style. I stick to my personal style and not to the dictates of the never-ending fashion industry. Like many things, it takes a while to find your sweet spot but you know it once you find it. Being fashionable will clearly put many of us in debt, struggling to keep up with credit card payments and even store card payments. It amazes me every time when I am offered a store card for a fashion store. Why would I want to buy clothes on credit only for them to be out of season in a few months? That makes no sense. Now don’t get me wrong, I love looking good and I like to invest in my clothing and accessories, so I don’t have to keep shopping every few months. I also love spoiling myself and I have a lovely closet with more items I can count but I only shop for things I need. Going along with what is considered fashionable would be a waste.

How do you see fashion?

According to the editorial policy of Fashion Theory: The Journal of Dress, Body & Culture on Fashion History Love to Know Website, fashion is defined as “the cultural construction of the embodied identity.” Do you agree with this definition? How do you see fashion and would you call yourself fashionable?
