Dear Alexander Mcqueen!
Man your dresses are amazing, but I truly cant afford them.
If you got any left over getting dusty in some corner please let me know!
I love your work your dresses are like sculpture!
By the way why are no top brands in high fashion making any clothes Fairtrade or thinking about sustainable materials.
I mean Channel forexample will sell a white t shirt way over production costs just because its the brand it is....its not like they would loose money . Just curious...Im sure your considering alternative ways.
I have a friend who has a little clothing brand in Gothenburg called DEM, they are struggling to survive with strong ideals about workers writes etc. My friend Karin she will go to Srilanka where she gets her jens fabric made organic.
Growing organic cotton is not simple since the plant easily takes on bugs if your not using pesticides and its very labor intensive but its still a better alternative. We had some of our merch shirts made in Bamboo... the fabric feel incredibly soft and apparently bamboo grows fast and is a quite good environmentally friendly alternative.
Well Im no expert but thats what Ive heard.
My friend Karin has talkt alot to me in the past about why she got into the business and her passion for human writes it fascinates and inspires me.
Anyaway good luck with your spring collection its beautiful. Im a fan!
Ok gotto sound check now!
Peace and Love
