Yesterday I got the opportunity to interview Safia Minney, CEO and founder of the Fair Trade fashion label People Tree.
Miss Minney kindly agreed to be interviewed for the Soil Association blog post which I am currently researching on organic cloth, clothes and fashion. It was a fascinating interview which really got me thinking about the wider implications of the market for organic products.
The interview was just one part of my day at the People Tree event. I also got the chance to hear speakers involved in the design and production process of the People Tree clothes;
Before the interview I also had the opportunity to view the new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection and even try on a few pieces for myself;
There are some truly beautiful pieces in the collection and some wonderful dresses which I have put on my shopping list!
I now have to do the rest of my research on organic clothing which now also includes reading the book ‘Naked Fashion‘ kindly given to me by Safia Minney.
It was a great day and I can only encourage you to have a look at the People Tree website for wonderful autumnal knits, xmas party dresses and Men! great t’s and sweaters too.
