A fresh new issue of ethical fashion magazine SIX has just hit the news stands. A magazine that celebrates the designers, individuals and independent brands who are creating a more sustainable future for the fashion industry makes for a long list of BENGT designers making headlines.
Not surprisingly we find Louise Amstrup’s directional SS12 collection at the top of the fashion radar. The softness of the silk dresses is offset and made tough by the photographic collage prints inspired by New York and Scorsese’s cult film Taxi Driver. And speaking of prints, BENGT spring newcomer Malene Oddershede Bach‘s vibrant turqouise Cora dress equally makes a bold statement, marrying effortless flattering shapes with memorable and individual prints.
Emesha and their timeless tailored pieces is also no stranger to ethical fashion, championing not only to bring ‘slow’ fashion to the mainstream but fair wages in production factories. Finding your perfectly cut suit or shirt has never been as rewarding – both for your wardrobe and for your peace of mind.
For her quirky statement jewellery Kirsty Ward also gets a big heads up from the SIX fashion team. Ward’s eclectic yet beautiful pieces often constructed from coloured metal rings and rivets have become synonymous with her neo-tribal aesthetics and will not leave you unnoticed.
Moxham also never ceases to impress. Unexpectedly layered together, the nude Anubis and Flex necklaces as well as the Taba bracelet are given a sporty edge in this fashion feature lensed by up-and-coming photographer Martin Zahringer.
We already know that Imogen Belfield‘s jewellery is out of this world with hardwearing handmade designs that are both experimental and unique. Yet many of these appear like meteoric clusters from outer space, they at the same time somehow manage to be utterly romantic and incredibly stylish. This is one rising star, we can’t wait to see more from.
Last but not least Topi Tijani adds a bit of light hearted fun to the ethical fashion scene. With retro geometric patterns in poppy bright colours, Tijani’s sense of aesthetics blows a new joyful lease of life to the world of structured bags.
