What does ethical fashion even mean?
Ethical fashion is when you make a conscious decision as a consumer to source products that are sustainable or ethically made (meaning it is made without harming the environment or another person.) With fast fashion being the norm, it is hard to know who is actually making our clothing. Did you know that to keep the cost down of your typical mall clothes the industry is cutting corners are production by using sweatshops overseas that not only pay an under-living wage but put their workers at risk of death through dangerous working conditions or abusive management? Not only are those inexpensive trendy options putting lives in jeopardy, but you are also getting robbed with poor construction and cheap materials that might only survive a few runs through the washer before falling apart. It's time to rethink fashion!
So, when ethical fashion comes to mind you might first think, hippyish attire made from hemp or linen in unflattering shapes and neutral colors. There is a whole world of ethically made options out there, which is great, but sometimes they get a bit pricey and become unaffordable for the modern woman who is just starting out in the real world. And while more and more are turning to a minimalist lifestyle and starting to think about shopping ethically, it's discouraging when even the most basic pieces come with a high price tag. That's where A Girl Named Katie fills in the gap. The next best thing to being ethically made, is being sustainable. Secondhand is an awesome sustainable choice and in our shop you will find amazing treasures that are being given a new life while being affordable and chic. Our pieces are on trend and hand-selected by a stylist and curated to fit our brand. It's kinda like a consignment shop but a lot better!
