A Former Model On A Fashion Mission

Fashion designed with heart and purpose. I was lucky enough to meet former model and foreign aid worker Yana Barankin through social media and email. Her back story and her brand TAMAGA‘s mission had me fascinated. Working with her fiancee Eric the two are on a journey to be part of the solution to fashions environmental and social footprint. I decided that it might be nice to know a little more about this inspiring woman (and...

EcoBling: Wearing the Kitchen Sink

Planet Friendly Jewellery I’ve been lucky enough to know Katie Johnston- founder of EcoBling– for quite some time now and she is a seriously awesome earth warrior. Not only does this woman run her own jewellery label (designing, making, styling, and hitting up international runway shows) she also spends her time traveling to and working with Indigenous communities, and can often be found overseas in Nepal working directly...

Ocean Zen: Booties, Beaches, and Being a Beautiful Human.

Ocean Zen Bikini. A label started by an inspiring woman who I am lucky enough to share a university and geographical local with! The beautiful and passionate Steph Gabriel is a Sunshine Coast based designer (who you might recognise from the recent post about the Nature & Health column) and ocean lover who just-so-happened to study Environmental Science at the same university as me. Her passion for ocean conservation and her love...

The Global Trekker With a Desire To Do Good

Socks with soul from a man on a social mission. You might remember a little post I did on Preserving Artisan Culture way back on the first of June this year where I featured a label called Tibetan Socks (a brand that got epic amounts of Instagram love). Since then Tibetan Socks founder Adrien Field and I have been pen pals. With all the chit chatting I’ve come to consider Adrien and the Tibetan Sock mission pretty gosh-darn...

Eva Cassis on Items Made to be Loved and Laundered

Slow and steady wins the race! I originally came across Eva Cassis through my fellow Queensland-based-blogging-beauty Jen of Eco Warrior Princess fame. Being a big fan of this unique label, Eva Cassis’s slow-fashion designs kept catching my eye on Jen’s feed. When the opportunity to learn more arose I jumped at the chance to interview the founder of this label. From the moment I started researching Eva’s design...

Bohemian Living, Business Ethics, and Coffee with Tupac.

Bohemian Love with Zarpar | Global Living Since I began my blogging journey with Sustainability in Style I have had the joy of starting loads of eco-conversations with interesting folks from across the Globe. I feel very grateful to be able to chat with likeminded people who come from all walks of life and have all kinds of unique skills and life experiences. What’s even better is when the  convos turn into real life interviews...

Underwear for the Modern Day Superhero

Newsflash: Real superheroes wear organic.  Howdy folks! Sorry about the big gap between posts. A dog at my homework. Hang on, scrap that… my homework ate my dog walking time (and my clothes washing time, and my fun time, and my cleaning my house time…. perhaps all my time?). Anyways, whatever the lame excuse I’m back now with an epic interview for those of you who wear underwear, be it on the inside or the outside of...

Life Changing Accessories (Literally)!

You had me at Amazeballs! When Celina Comninos and I struck up a conversation via email I couldn’t help but check out her lovely label Loup & Co. As soon as I saw her wonderful designs (hello Cacti necklace) the customisable give cards  (the ‘You are amazeballs’ one is my fave) and her incredible business model I knew I had to find out more. Statistics compiled by UNICEF about Kenyan children indicate that during...

Love, Ethics, and Beautiful Jewels

Silver, Substance, and Sustainability. Three excellent ‘S’ words that lead me to this chat with Tanya Coelho the designer of Zefyr Jewels. Like many of you out there who have chatted silver and gold on social media, jewellery is my one true weakness! Once upon a time jewellery wasn’t on my radar. This may have been due to the fact that the only jewellery retailers I was aware of were chain stores that sold classic...

Thrift Me Pretty: Stop Hiding and Start Shining!

Revelations in Style. A little while back I was lucky enough to cross paths with Stasia of Thrift Me Pretty on Instagram. Completely smitten by her bright, positive, and bubbly approach to life we have been e-eco-style-sistas for some time now. In a recent online chat I asked Stasia if she would be interested in sharing some of her style stories and tips with the Sustainability in Style readers. I hope you agree that she has plenty to...
