About Us

about me

Hello, lovely people of the Internet and I hope new friends. So here is a little about me: My Name is Lottie Woods, I am a fashion designer by profession, originally I’m from the North of England but now I call London home. 

Design has always been my true passion, specially making clothes for the everyday man, woman, or child. Clothes that people can cherish and wear often, that make the individual feel happy and stylish but are most importantly are accessible.

I enjoy my job, but over the last 5 years I have felt a major pull towards thinking of the bigger picture. I believe that fashion moves at a rapid pace that is unnecessary and unsustainable, and I want to be another voice that shouts out for the benefits of slowing the process down.

 

I passionately want to feel connected to this multi-billion pound industry. Not just through buying but through caring.

 

This is the reason I started this blog, to reach out to people who want to believe in a better fashion future. To go on a journey through the current climate and explore what companies are creating positive waves, talk about ways in which everyone can make a difference, and explain the not so positive parts. Through caring a lot about ethical and sustainable fashion it has also opened the door to caring about the environment as a whole, and how to make my lifestyle more environmentally friendly, as everything is connected. So I also really enjoy promoting positive changes about caring for our planet along with fashion. If we can change our consumer habits we can change the world!

 

I am hoping someone may read this and share my sentiments. If so I reach out, I would love to hear from you. The smallest ideas can create the best conversations, and I do believe that every little helps. 

What do I have to say? Do I have the courage to say it? How can we make a positive changes? Questions I have been asking myself for a long time, the answers I will never know until I put that vulnerable part of myself out into the world.

I don’t hold the answers by any means, but this won’t stop us all asking the necessary questions for a better future. Who’s with me?

  1. Hi there Lottie. I only just discovered your blog by chance and we couldn’t have more in common! I also come from a Fashion Design background having studied it and done a few internships here and there, hailing from the UK as well. I am taking up a new job soon however whereby I’m officially leaving Fashion…not because I don’t love it no more but because I feel that I need to move on from it. It started with working in the production room seeing all the straps on the floor to watching documentaries like the True Cost and taking some FutureLearn courses…everything changed! In truth, I wish I had learnt about sustainability at university…in fact, I think it should be a mandatory module or something but now, I’m still teaching myself on how I can be more sustainable in my practices both as designer and consumer. Nice to meet you!

    Judy.

    1. Hi Judy, Wow I love that, so nice to be able to connect with people like yourself online. That we can have this conversation, is the best thing about blogging, making genuine connections, talking about the things we are both passionate about.

      We also didn’t really get taught about sustainability at university, I think they are introducing it more into curriculums now, which is good. If I’d known the full story at uni, I genuinely don’t know if I could have finished the course. I am super happy to be educating myself now, as you are too.

      So nice to meet you! Love your blog!

      Love Lottie xx
