ecomono – The Online Destination for Australian Ethical Fashion
Meet Sam Leigh, the founder and creative behind the new online ethical fashion destination for monochrome style, eco|mono.
Sam let us take peek inside her wardrobe and we chatted about her style and ethics which ultimately led to her starting a business dedicated to classic, well made clothes in black, white and grey.
My ethical fashion journey started in a rather organically. In March 2015, I was made redundant from my full time role working in the events industry.
Whilst searching for other job opportunities I decided to write a fashion blog as a hobby.
As I started to research topics to discuss on the blog, I began to realise just how horrifying the ethics are in the fashion industry and the negative impact the industry has on our environment.
I felt as though I had been extremely naive up until this point.
A few people recommended that I watch The True Cost Documentary, it really inspired me and I decided to change the angle of my blog and focus on positive ethical fashion. eco|mono was born.
