To continue our stream of local portraits, we recently welcomed two up and coming style bloggers, Camille MacLean of Style Your Life and Magy Lofoli of Fashion Daring, into our studio to play dress up with some New Classics garb. And in case you missed our last local portrait with Edmonton's first lady, Sarah Chan, here's what it is all about. Every two weeks or so, we will be showcasing Albertans from all sorts of backgrounds, occupations, and specialties wearing New Classics clothing, in hopes of sparking a province-wide, and eventually nation-wide, conversation surrounding the issues of sustainability and ethical malpractices within today's mainstream fashion industry. With fast fashion quickly suffocating the fashion industry, it is easy to forget that our shopping habits and choices do have an effect on both the environment and garment workers within the supply chain. So, at New Classics Studios, we're asking you to join the slow fashion movement and help us slow down the rate at which we consume disposable fashion. Start shopping local, sustainable, or secondhand. Start investing in quality and timeless garments. Start thinking quality over quantity. Help us #WearTheChange.
So, for round two of our Local Portraits feature, we asked Camille and Magy to answer a couple questions about their personal style, what makes Edmonton such a great place, and why sustainability is important to them.
NC: How old are you?
NC: Tell us a bit about yourself!
NC: A random fact or two about you?
NC: What's your favourite thing about living in Edmonton?
NC: Describe your personal style?
NC: Favourite places to eat in Edmonton?
NC: Why is sustainability within the slow fashion industry important to you?
NC: How do you plan to #WearTheChange?
