Welcome to Very Nice Threads v2.1.
It's been a bit of a challenging year in terms of turning Very Nice Threads, from a blog into something more. One of the major hiccups was losing the entire Very Nice Threads archive last March. Believe me, that was a massive life lesson in ROUTINE DATA BACKUP. I have slowly been piecing together remnants of the old site and housing them in a temporary archive on Tumblr. Rather than recreate the old blog which, in the early days, were streetstyle photos I took around London, Paris and Berlin from 2009 - 2014, I thought it was important to move forward my work as a writer and a content strategist.
I've been writing about sustainable and ethical fashion since 2009. In this time, I have seen sustainable and ethical fashion inch closer each season from the fringes of industry and toward the centre. Every major fashion label now has a corporate social responsibility mandate and the number of independent brands who put sustainability at the centre of what they do has exploded in the last two years.
