HoseWear makes bags and accessories out of decommissioned fire hoses. The material would otherwise find its end being dumped to landfill or burnt (ironic, huh?). Each fire hose has a life saving story to tell and so do their bags and belts. In their short history they have saved over 30 miles of fire hoses and sold their products to over 30 countries worldwide.

We’ve all heard lots of things about the benefits of choosing organic, whether it’s the food we eat, the skincare products we use or even the clothes we wear, but eyeglasses? For most of us, this isn’t something we think of when we hear the word organic; because, let’s be honest, we all wear those plastic frames that are well, not very environmentally friendly. But with this innovative designer, I’m pretty sure you’ll be amazed by what she uses for her line of organic frames.

On one of the suns rare appearances in London, I managed a quick power walk to Bloomsbury to see the London Fashion Week launch of House of Tammam’s couture collection, which utilizes both British lace and its own hand-stitched lace, which takes two weeks to do in the studio workshop in India.

The rain tried to put a damper on this edition of London Fashion Week. Try walking around in high heels on cobbles (the Somerset House courtyard), and being decked out in all your finery under an umbrella, which is either broken or totally uncoordinated. Despite the mild distractions provided by the weather, there was an abundance of beauty and creativity ready to divert attention and offer delight.

Swapping and Schwapping

While vintage shopping holds a certain mystique for many (and thanks to various thrift stores for making it cool again), many people still find it hard to make the move to buying second-hand clothes. Not quite gone are the old, negative connotations of smelly, out of style clothes that only those less fortunate would buy. One way we can tackle the pace of fast fashion and encourage more people to wear second-hand is to encourage more swapping. Perhaps it is the idea that we are exchanging clothes with others like us, or in many cases people we know, but for many, swapping somehow sounds better.

We are always told to stop and smell the roses, to notice the splendor in the world around us.   In today's world, especially with all the ecological problems and tragedies occurring around us, it is sometimes difficult to find the beauty.   Who would ever imagine that what is so carelessly discarded and disrupts nature's tranquility would, itself, possess an inherent beauty?

 

AlterEquo was born upon the emergencies of the waste collection system in the Capital City.
