Welcome to the third instalment of my Eco Fashion Summer Spectacular series, where I feature outstanding brands with Eco-friendly fabrics and values, modelled by me, and photographed by my better half on our recent holiday!,
The beautiful scenery at our Ocean front cabin island inspired me to play dress up, and how fitting that I have a gorgeous Eco wardrobe to compliment the stunning natural setting of our Summer home.
Today, I’m featuring Synergy Organic Clothing, which was actually the brand that got me into Eco Fashion. I also brought along two other pieces from Synergy, but sadly they got too wrinkled in my bag to model (and there’s no electricity, so ironing wasn’t an option!)
However, I’m proud to be modelling this gorgeous two-tone angel wing dress, which is one of my favourites. It’s made of 100% organic cotton, and I absolutely adore the look and feel of it!
What makes Synergy Eco Friendly:
For starters, their entire collection is made with 100% organic cotton, and dyed with only low impact dyes. Founder Kate Fisher developed her brainchild in 1993, when her travels to Nepal inspired her to purchase the fabrics that planted the seeds of Synergy in her mind. Today, Synergy still maintains production in Nepal, in accordance with fair trade organizations, using low impact dyes that meet the basic requirements of GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard). They’ve even hired professionals to oversee the production, ensuring that no toxic chemicals are used, and always prioritizing fair wages. Read more about Synergy here and here.
Why this outfit is a Summer essential for me:
As you may have noticed, I like versatility in my clothing. I like comfort and adorability, both of which this little number has in spades. Organic cotton is super soft and with just enough stretch to it, and like many of the pieces in my current wardrobe, this dress can be dressed up (heels and a smokey eye, hair piled up in a pretty bun) or dressed down for a Sunday afternoon, like I’ve done here, with loose hair, my Sole Rebels shoes and a grey cardi. (By the way, Sole Rebels is another amazingly Eco friendly brand that makes fabulous footwear!). Let’s not forget the GORGEOUS angel wing appliqué, which is not screens, but sewn in, with strips of fabric. Isn’t is beautiful? I also love the v-neck and the pretty dark grey (midnight is the name of the shade), which is easy to accessorize with and goes with almost any shoe or sandal!
I am so impressed with the durability, functionality, versatility and classic yet modern vibe of Synergy Organic Clothing. On their website, they touch upon the idea of fusing Eastern and Western fashion influences in their designs, and I think they pull that off effortlessly. Their pieces are very wearable, super comfortable and flattering, and their Eco-friendly fabrics and ethics are admirable. Combined with the adorable, elegant, timeless yet unique cuts and designs, this brand is an absolute gem and I’m thrilled and proud to own their pieces.
