Nobody’s Child – redefining sustainable fashion on a budget

Nobody’s Child was a discovery which we made by accident, and we’re so happy that it happened that way, because it’s been an instant game changer for us. 

As our regular readers know, we’re always on the lookout for innovative companies and products who are intent on creating a better world. Whether it’s as part of their business model, their supply chain or their production process, companies are now placing more emphasis than ever before on making a positive environmental impact, while creating a fairer workplace for all involved.

The one element of this universally beneficial approach is that it can often come with a hefty price tag. This is something which we often overlook when it comes to avoiding fast fashion, disposable culture or simply trying to be more ethical consumers.

There is a cheeky little part of us all that will always love a bargain though.

This is why we’re delighted to have discovered Nobody’s Child. Taking the best approach to fashion and creating a universally accessible range of women’s clothing which is green in terms of creation and evergreen in terms of fashion.

The premise of Nobody’s Child disrupts the standard, seasonal approach. They create small batch runs of items, ensuring that things don’t stick around for too long, to avoid having to overproduce their products to keep up with standard release schedules. This means they’re not writing off tonnes (literally and figuratively) of dead stock each year, like some companies are guilty of doing.

“Our conscience drives our desire to be better and we’re honest about our green credentials. We produce clothes that you’ll want to wear again and again – the aim of the game is to avoid landfill, not add to it.”

Based in London, the Nobody’s Child team ‘source and re-purpose fabric from from past seasons to divert it from a lifetime in landfill’. How could we not try them out?

We chose a selection of skirts and sweaters and were amazed with the simple elegance of the design and just how timeless they were. The sizes were spot on and the quality…

The quality was simply unreal. It felt like we’d just completed a shopping spree in a high end boutique, but for a fraction of the cost. It felt so good to be able to make a substantial boost to our wardrobe, without the guilt of bowing to the destructive process of fast fashion.

We’ll have more pics of our haul up on the My Good Planet Instagram page over the next few days.
