The thing with weddings is that we just don’t get enough of them. So, for those of us who enjoy dressing up for big events, we certainly face the risk of overdoing our outfit led by the excitement of the moment.

This is why at ecoKomorebi we have joined forces to offer you a list of personal recommendations that we think are useful when preparing an outstanding “wedding guest look”.

  1. Bet on comfort. Remember that you will have to go through long hours of social interaction: starting with the ceremony and ending up at the dance floor! So, there is no reason to sabotage yourself by picking up the wrong accessories – especially now that there are so many comfy platform sandals to choose from.
  2. Plan ahead. You don’t want to be deciding on what to wear or how to wear it the day before the event. Try out your outfit quietly at home so that you can pay attention to detail. For instance, getting the right underwear is essential. Is your bra or the seam of your panties showing? Will your jewellery or headdress hold their positions all through the day/night? Read more

It’s market time!

Düsseldorf’s finest is our latest great discovery. On Saturday we paid a visit to this multi-space market that gathers together some of the most authentic brands, designers and concept stores of the city. The event, originally promoted by the communications agency Kollektiv K, will be open again on the weekend of 10th and 11th June at Stilwerk (Grünstraße 15).

Small retailers selling sustainable clothes and items made out of recycled materials, fashion labels that produce locally and a lot of handcrafted jewellery, accessories and printings. In other words, everything that turns us on! Not to forget the quality food and different music performances. Read more

#whomademyclothes?

“On 24 April every year, Fashion Revolution Day brings people from all over the world together to use the power of fashion to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes. We want fashion to become a force for good. We believe in an industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. We believe transparency is the first step to transform the industry. And it starts with one simple question: Who made my clothes?

(Fashion Revolution Week has finally arrived, and to celebrate it we have interviewed Carry Sommers, co-founder of the movement Fashion Revolution together with Orsola de Castro. The interview starts in the previous blog post. ) 

On 24 April we will be celebrating a new edition of the Fashion Revolution Day and, in order to achieve a higher level of transparency within the fashion industry, you are encouraging consumers all around the world to address the question of “who made my clothes?” to different fashion labels of their choice. Why this concreate question and no other?
We no longer know who makes our clothes and we don’t know the true cost of the things we buy. The fashion supply chain is fractured and the producers have become faceless. This is costing lives. We believe that rebuilding the broken links across the whole supply chain, from farmer to consumer, is the only way to transform the entire industry. Fashion Revolution brings everyone together to make that happen. Read more
