Fast fashion has meant that clothing production has doubled in the last 15 years.
We are buying 60% more than we did 10 years ago and we are keeping our clothes half as long. This is obviously just non sustainable.
At Distinctively Me we aim to reverse this trend and slow down fashion by,
Making Clothes that fit Perfectly
Provide styles that will suit all body shapes and sizes
Whenever we can, we use fabrics made from natural fibres, which are more enjoyable to wear, and will last longer
We know who makes all of our clothes and where they are made. John, our Head of Tailoring is based out his workshop in London and works with a group of talented seamstresses / machinists across town. We ensure pay a decent living wage and where possible encourage our team to work from home as this often suits their work life balance as well as reducing the need to travel.
We source our fabrics from the highest quality manufacturers based in the UK and Italy, where we can feel comfortable that work conditions are satisfactory
