MY WARDROBE : ETHICAL SUSTAINABLE AND STYLISH
What’s a capsule wardrobe you ask ?
You get more with buying less !
Absolutely ! You can forget about the “I have nothing to wear feeling”. Dressing in the morning become quite fun when you have a capsule wardrobe ! It’s also the best option for the planet (and for your wallet). So goodbye fast fashion !
We base our company on 4 core values that are absolutely non negotiable and that lead every steps we take :
Today, the fashion industry has disastrous consequences on human lives : underpay workers, horrendous working conditions, lack of security…and all of this to support the hectic rhythm of fast fashion.
For us, it is essential to ensure that every single person involved in the process of making a piece of clothes has been fairly paid and has worked in decent conditions. We want to support Human lives through our project. Therefore we work very closely with factory that are labelled Fairtrade by Max Havelaar and Fairwear Foundation.
We only design clothes made from the most sustainable fabric : organic cotton labelled GOTS or recylced materials.
Also thanks to our designs not following trends we make sure that our clothes are always relevant and that people will not want to throw them away after a season or two.
None of our clothes contain products of animal origin (no leather, no silk, no wool..). For many ethical and eco-friendly reasons that we will soon explain in a blog article in english.
How did we start Wess ?
You have probably heard of the Colibri legend often told by Pierre Rahbi ?
One day a terrible fire broke out in a forest. Frightened, all the animals fled their homes, feeling helpless, except for one little hummingbird. The hummingbird swooped into the stream for a few drops of water and went back to the forest to put out the fire. Then it went back to the stream again, again, again and again.
All the other animals watched in disbelief: “Your wings will burn, your beak is too small, and one drop at a time you’ll never put out the fire!”
The hummingbird, without skipping a beat, looked back and said, “I am doing what I can.”
And that summarizes exactly want we want to do with Wess : doing what we can. We want to be part of this big change and build a new dynamic where it is no longer tolerated to abuseviley use people and the planet for fashion. Or any other industry for that matter.
Wess it’s us two : Marine & Rebecca. We met in London where we lived a few years, sharing a house and enjoying life ! Our awareness of the world that surrounds us started to grow whilst we were there, with a strong willingness to act to make it a better place. Then there was no going back : we left our jobs and decided to create Wess.
We also develop content to help women optimize their wardrobe via video and blog content. Our objective is to promote the concept of minimalism consumption through the capsule wardrobe and make it accessible to as many women as possible !
