The Fashion Fix – Ethical Brands & LFWMens
Inside The Fashion Fix this week, we discover the super cool ethical fashion brands that offer that extra something in the form of proposing like-for-like product donations to communities throughout the globe or give financial donations, plus we uncover the highlights from London Fashion Week Mens.
Sustainable Brands Giving Back…
ActionAid’s My Body Is Mine T-shirts – The organisation has collaborated with 5 pioneering female artists to design an assortment empowering tees that coincide with their campaign entitled #MyBodyIsMine. Retailing at an affordable £22, the organisation’s work which supports survivors of violence receives 100% of the donated profits.
Pala Sunglasses – Eye care projects from Africa are the recipients of the sales of Pala Sunglasses. Furthermore, their original sunglass cases are crafted out of plastic bags, designed by local weavers. Choosing just one pair is by far the hardest part.
TOMS – The brand’s practice known as ‘One for One’ is something to be spoken for. After every time a pair of cosy shoes are purchased, a pair is mindfully donated to a child in need. And it’s not just shoes TOMS design either!
London Fashion Week Mens…

Fashion East – Initially known as MAN, Fashion East advocates 3 emerging design brands that forever witness’s names full of character, charisma and creativity and this season’s showing was no exception. Shockingly vibrant and glossy vinyl’s, the new athleisure looks and a fresh take on tailoring excited show attendees.
A-Cold-Wall – Launched in 2015, the British luxury streetwear label paraded a “material study for social architecture” for SS2020, utilising four main compounds of glass, water, lead and clay. Structured tailoring and fluid outerwear looks materialised in an army of the brand’s signature utilitarian and technical aesthetics, outfitted in a palette of beige, white, black, red, and aqua shades.
Until next time, oxox, Katie.
