Fashion with a conscience: Ada Zanditon

Posted in Spring/Summer 2010 by Nneoma Ulu on October 15, 2009

There is no obvious link between fashion and climate change. Though it is true that fashion encapsulates all that is consumer-driven and disposable about society these days. In recent times, there has been a surge in eco-friendly designers and brands, or even just familiar brands trying to do things with the environment in mind. Think H&M’s organic cotton range and the emergence of brands such as Edun and Leju. As we are faced with news and images of man-made destruction to the environment, it is becoming more and more evident that people in fashion do have a conscience.

One such lady is Ada Zanditon. She recently showcased her Spring/Summer 2010 collection as part of Vauxhall Fashion Scout,the UK’s largest event for emerging designers, that forms part of London Fashion Week. Zanditon uses a range of organic cotton and natural fabrics with innovative waste reducing and energy conscious solutions. The thing that I love about Zanditon is that despite being really concerned about the environment, her designs are amazing. The detailing in her garments is exquisite and gives them a real architectural look. There is no doubt she is very talented, so much so that she was recognised as one of Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s ‘Ones To Watch’.
