Eco-fashion offers a renaissance for new Tunisian brands

MAHDIA, Tunisia (AP) — The sun is setting by the time Tunisian fashion designer Chems Eddine Mechri reaches the breezy, seaside town of Mahdia. He has spent half the day driving in the scorching heat in pursuit of the precious, handmade fabrics he needs for his upcoming winter collection.

With a 200-kilometer ( 125-mile) road trip from Tunis coming to an end, the designer knows just the place: the basement of a blue-lit workshop, hidden away in the labyrinth of Mahdia’s old medina, where silk weaver Mohamed Ismail’s spinning wheel still is going at full speed.

In a globalized world dominated by fast fashion brands such as Zara, H&M and Topshop, Tunisian designers like Mechri are increasingly going back to their roots, embracing local artisans and environmentally conscious materials. Thanks to North African nation’s age-old textile-making traditions, Tunisia is a good fit for the eco-fashion they want to champion.

Abolishing tax-free shopping would deal ‘hammer blow’ to fashion industry, brands warn

Rishi Sunak is facing renewed pressure to U-Turn on a planned crackdown on VAT-free shopping for tourists as some of Britain’s best-known brands warned the move would prove to be a “hammer blow”. 

Fashion and luxury brands including Ted Baker, The White Company and Paul Smith have this weekend written to the Chancellor urging him to row back on a decision to end tax-free shopping in Britain.

The move, they said, would make the UK “the least attractive shopping destination in Europe” and come at a time when they could “ill afford” the hit. 

“International shoppers will instead choose to spend their money in EU destinations where tax-free purchases are still available… We urge the Chancellor to reverse his decision, which is bad for business and bad for the Treasury’s own coffers.” 

In the open letter to the Chancellor, the 16 brands, which also included Smythson, Rupert Sanderson and Hackett,

Take a minute to think about what you’ve got in your closet right now. Are there items you bought last year that still have tags on them? Things you’ve purchased but only worn once or twice? How often do you buy clothing online and send back items that don’t fit quite right? BBC Earth reveals that the majority of returned items are thrown away or torched in massive burn piles, which is outrageous and horrifying.

Investing in sustainable clothing and companies that are dedicated to ethical and Earth-friendly practices may be the solution. Fast fashion may be convenient and cheap, but its cost runs deep, from unfair wages to negative environmental impacts. And consumers are catching on—Fast Company reported

Making the most of virtual pitches: 9 practical tips and tricks for agencies and brands

In the second of a four-part series on virtual pitches, Ebiquity’s managing director for South East Asia, Leela Nair, sets out a blueprint for agencies and brands detailing how to get the most out of pitches run online.

Pitching is a process of courtship in which agencies look to impress brands that their future needs are best served by forming an enduring relationship with them instead of other potential partners. During the process, the onus of responsibility and performance shifts from brands briefing and outlining their needs and agencies listening, to agencies proposing their solutions to the brief and brands listening and evaluating the agency response.

One dynamic that hasn’t changed as all parties have rapidly adjusted to the new world of virtual pitching is brands’ desire to brief their agencies in the best way possible. Brands want agencies to understand their business and objectives and give the best possible

Like many young adults branching out on their own, my first big girl apartment while living abroad was heavily furnished with inexpensive items from Sweden’s biggest export – Ikea. I still remember it being one of the first stops I made after picking up the keys to my tiny French apartment, and the long trip to the next town over so that I could stock up on their affordable home goods.

I look back fondly at

Disinfectant Sprays Are In-Stock If You’re Willing to Give These Independent Brands a Chance

If you’ve been looking for Lysol or Clorox spray online, you’re probably out of luck. The big-name cleaning brands have been sold out online since March, as shoppers rushed to stock up on cleaning and sanitizing products for their home to help curb the spread of Covid-19.

According to the CDC, use of these sanitizing sprays could help kill germs and bacteria, and prevent viruses from spreading. They especially recommend the use of disinfectant sprays on “high-touch” surfaces (faucets, light switches, keyboards, handles) and on things like electronics, and in your kitchen and bathroom.

But while Purell recently announced a restock of their hand sanitizers, items like disinfecting sprays are still hard to find. If you’re willing to consider some newer brands and shop outside of Amazon though, there are plenty of good disinfectant sprays in stock. We’ve found four options that deliver the same cleaning and disinfecting power as

12 Affordable Fashion Brands That Are Slaying The House Dress Trend

You can’t go out to party in your favorite dress right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear a dress at home. Take, for instance, the “nap dress” trend that has gained popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The house dress initially came about a century ago and was made to wear while doing household chores, but women are now wearing house dresses to do whatever they please. Check out our list of 12 fashion brands that are slaying the trend. Each pick is under $25, and you’ll be supporting minority-owned brands to boot.
