The complexity of understanding sustainable fashion and the rising trend of eco-friendly products still in its immaturity stage.  As a freelance dress-maker and crafter, like any crafters I keep boxes stuffed with good-odd bits of cheap quality fabrics and scraps of leather from my years at London College of Fashion for future upcycling projects which hasn’t yet happened, I still hoard scraps which are still useless today, they will not turn into a beautiful wearable garment or a cushion cover.

My lovely two friends from Hong Kong, Tania Reinert and Samantha Wong have recently launched their online fashion boutique, A Boy Named Sue, stocking carefully selected sustainable fashion labels from across the globe; Partimi, Thu Thu, The Sway, Hien Le, and many more. A unique concept with strong eco and social ethics, no sweatshop bananas and their cool catchy tagline – ‘cool clothes with a conscience’ clearly says it all.

P.s their Partimi’s Heath silk shirt sell like hot cakes!


Check out for more information. In the editorial I’m wearing; duffel coat by Burberry, men’s flannel check shirt from Uniqlo, vintage belt from Blitz London, taffetta skirt by White Tent, and red clutch by Fleabags both c/o A Boy Named Sue, knee high socks from Marks & Spencer, ankle boots c/o Kurt Geiger.

    Hey Kit, first time I’ve been to your site, the pictures are so gorgeous! So sorry it’s taken so long I’ve been exceptionally busy working my butts off at King’s (and no me time). Let’s meet up for tea if you’re around in Southgate next weekend.

    Great name for the boutique, just had a brief browse through and I already spotted so many pieces that I would like, I think my fave has to be the moscow jacket, the shape of it is perfect! X

    Great ensemble, especially your coat with the quirky buttons and the black-hued pumps. The blazing red envelope bag perfectly completes your cool look.
