Sustainability

We are committed as a team to try and be as sustainable as possible. We know that the fashion industry is one of the biggest polluters in the world so we have as a team committed to various ways of being sustainable. We are always open to new sustainable practices so do get in touch with your thoughts!

Ethical

It’s important to us that all our suppliers are treated well, paid fairly and our clients’ garments are produced as sustainably as possible, so we follow the Ethical Trading Initiative and ask all our suppliers, sub-contractors and manufacturers both in the UK and offshore to follow it too.

1.0 Employment is freely chosen
1.1 There is no forced, bonded or involuntary prison labour.
1.2 Workers are not required to lodge “deposits” or their identity papers with their employer and are free to leave their employer after reasonable notice.

3.1 A safe and hygienic working environment shall be provided, bearing in mind the prevailing knowledge of the industry and of any specific hazards. Adequate steps shall be taken to prevent accidents and injury to health arising out of, associated with, or occurring in the course of work, by minimising, so far as is reasonably practicable, the causes of hazards inherent in the working environment.

Wrapkind

WrapKind upcycle our deadstock waste to create easy to use, affordable fabric wrapping solutions for presents.

With over 50000 trees cut down annually for wrapping paper and millions of tons of fabric ending up in landfills, their aim is to incite a trend in fabric wrapping by providing consumers with 'one more way' we can all easily be sustainable.

The longevity of our planet requires participation in the fight to save it; if we all make small changes to reduce our waste, it will have a massive impact.

Studio Fox Vintage

An eclectic collection of vintage, designer clothing & samples from our production agency and personal finds from our founder fazane fox.

​With our founder having worked in the industry for over 14 years, a personal love of unique vintage and designer fashion, access to exclusive designer sales, a mountain of production samples from the production agency, and the inability to have physical sales in our studio due to covid.....the idea for Studio Fox Vintage was born.

With carefully curated styling and professional studio shots on local models, our collections are sure to make you stand out from the crowd whilst doing your bit for the environment.

Schooling for Philbert

As part of our efforts to give back and share our success and continued business growth we are currently sponsoring a lovely young man called Philibert through art college in Uganda for two years.

Gifts from Fairies

Gifts from Fairies have recognised the enormity of the challenges our society faces, and are dedicated to making a lasting impact.

They are a not-for-profit organisation designed to help young children in need or who are in care with presents and gifts.

As a mum, their founder Emma sees the joy that her little boy has when opening presents, but there are 3.9 million children living in poverty right now, and her goal is to spread a little happiness to those children.

We have donated new & used children's clothing from our production agency to Gifts from Fairies.

Salcare

Salcare is a charity – a “one-stop shop” providing support for the people of Amber Valley and Erewash.

They have been around since 1977 and help anyone in need, whether they have been referred to them by organisations such as social services, the police, domestic abuse services or job centres. 

The benefit of having all the information as well as aid and assistance in one place is to be able to make sure that people who require support of any kind can be helped to make safer choices for themselves and their families.

We have donated our time to Salcare recently producing flyers for their charity fundraiser which we attended and donated funds on the night.
