A little while ago I had the pleasure of photographing my good friend Zoe Robinson, who founded the trailblazing The Good Wardrobe - an award winning online community hub mixing the best ‘conscious’ fashion with services that prolong the life of clothes. The antithesis of fast fashion.
Finding its feet in 2012, the portal's values proved successful and now, after her family relocated from London to Bristol last year, The Good Wardrobe is now embarking on a new, ambitious development to cover the whole of Bristol City.
To aide this change, Zoe has set up a Crowdfunder page and here are a few of her words:
"So far I have self-funded The Good Wardrobe and I've only been able to focus on featuring London and online businesses. Last year I moved to Bristol with my family and I want to expand to cover this incredible city - there are so many amazing organisations here including independent designers, Repair Cafes, charity shops, vintage boutiques, haberdashers and upcycling gurus. I want to bring the best of Bristol's ethical fashion scene under one virtual roof; I want to map them all out, promote them and create your wise guide to Bristol fashion!"
So if you are interested in helping Zoe and The Good Wardrobe spread their wings in Bristol, please head over to the Crowdfunder page or check out the video below. Please note that pledges end at 8:40am 29th June 2017.
I wish Zoe the very best of luck!
