Gallery: 30 Eco-Fashion Predictions for 2013

CARRIE PARRY (DESIGNER)

A new direction is underway thanks to information and communication technologies. The shift focuses on the meaning behind products and caring about where and how they are made. Technology has disrupted the status quo and created myriad opportunities to connect more effectively with customers and artisans.

    I think that one of the main ethical questions should be over the lack of choice in skincare/make up brands unless one chooses to shoponline at places like Naturisimo or LoveLula where only non animal tested products are sold? In Department stores and Boots many brands especially the ‘high end’ designer ones still use the cruel and unreliable draize and force feeding methods rather than the more reliable alternatives, even ingredients linked to skin irritation and cancer are still used. This is less likely in BUAV approved non animal tested products as natural alternatives, higher quality are often preferred?
