Who are you supporting this year? 🎁 Our household always aims to do as much of our Christmas shopping at independent stores because we want to support other small businesses + the local economy 😍 Remember the UK pre-Xmas shipping deadlines for our design your own service is Mon 17th + for ready to wear + accessories Thurs 20th Dec 💛 Are you shopping small this Christmas? Tag your favourite places to #shopsmall below to give them a bit of love + exposure 😇 Ps. Please let us know who the artist behind this gorgeous calligraphy is if you know so we can credit them! 😇 #wearclothesthatmatter #representing #christmas #ethicalfashion #ethicalbusiness #ethicallysourced #conciousconsumer #consciousfashion #ecofashion #ethicalclothing #ethicallymade #fashrev #fashionrevolution #christmasgifts #fromwhereistand #mycreativebiz #feminist #label #imadeyourclothes #consciousfashion #livingwage #revolution #shopethicalinstead #slowfashion #sustainable #sustainableliving #standup #girlboss #tuesday

Still buzzing from being in the paper on Saturday! Did you catch us on page 7 of @thetimes ? We had such a great time meeting so many thoughtful conscious consumers at the UK's first Zero Waste Market by @zerowastegoods 😍 It goes to show that there is a real move towards less wasteful more sustainable production + consumerism with over 800 shoppers at this event. Our most popular items on the day were our DIY wreath kits + some of our sample wreaths too! You can shop the kits here to add some zero waste handmade joy to your Christmas - shop them via the link in our bio ✂️ ⠀ ⠀ #happy #mondaymotivation #team #smile #zerowaste #reasonstosmile #crafting #girls #styleideas #styleoftheday #dungareedress #comfy #craft #dungarees #colour #monday #sustainable #ethicalfashion #fashionrevolution #womeninbusiness #handmadewithlove #newspaper #mycreativebiz #girlboss #motivation #female #sustainablefashion #christmas #happymonday #mood

Did someone say slow fashion?? 😅 This week we’re looking forward to: a steadier pace! There always seems to be at least one bonkers week in December packed full of engagements + we’re hoping last week was it! Obviously we’ll always be busy bees at this time of year - which we’re very grateful for - but last week was particularly packed with markets, shoots + more 🐝 This week we’re going to be working on design your own orders, topping up our accessories as lots of you are treating your loved ones to them this year + we have both the @emperorscloth + @flockbrighton team parties 🎉 What are you looking forward to this week? #giftsforher #giftideas #christmas #wrap #supportlocalbusiness #reasonstosmile #gifts #supportlocal #styleideas #sustainableliving #dungarees #comfy #giftguide #overall #colour #mondaymotivation #sustainable #ethicalfashion #fashrev #handmadewithlove #mycreativebiz #girlboss #shopsmall #blue #sustainablefashion #christmasiscoming #shopethicalinstead #colourful #colourpop #girls

Instead of buying something sparkly that's poorly made from the high street and will only last for a couple of nights out invest in a garment with more mileage + an ethical footprint this Christmas👗 We’ve all done it but isn’t it time to actively do better? Our outfits are made to be worn again + again + again + again ✨ When you’re planning what to wear this festive season whether that be to parties, at home or out + about please keep in mind that the garment should outlast the holiday season + work within your wardrobe for years to come 😍 We have included lots of sustainable brands in our ‘Shop Independent Christmas Gift Guide’ this year so if you know you’ve got Emperor’s party gear or loungy velvet dungarees covered with us check out the jumpers, lingerie + knitwear by our featured designers for more sustainable outfit inspiration this Friday 💛 Link to the Guide in our bio ⠀ #wearclothesthatmatter #representing #branding #ethicalfashion #ethicalbusiness #ethicallysourced #conciousconsumer #consciousfashion #ecofashion #ethicalclothing #ethicallymade #fashrev #fashionrevolution #fastfashion #fromwhereistand #mycreativebiz #feminist #label #imadeyourclothes #consciousfashion #livingwage #revolution #qualityoverquantity #slowfashion #sustainable #sustainableliving #shopsmall #standup #girlboss #fridaymood

Can't believe it’s Cressida's penultimate week at Emperor's HQ! Does anyone else feel like the last few months have flown by? Cress has been doing a marketing placement with us to develop her skills + gain experience within a sustainable fashion brand 💛 I love that we’re able to offer this experience to students as they tell us that it’s hard to find placements with smaller sustainable labels. Isn’t it really important to make sure the next generation in fashion aren’t just working inside fast fashion brands? Our business model is so different to the high street + ‘luxury’ brands + a big part of that is social responsibility. We have to make the change happen that we want to see! Also Cress is wonderful + it’s been a total pleasure having her as part of the team 😍 ⠀ ⠀ #reality #representing #branding #ethicalfashion #ethicalbusiness #messy #conciousconsumer #consciousfashion #ecofashion #studio #ethicallymade #fashrev #fashionrevolution #fastfashion #fromwhereistand #mycreativebiz #feminist #teamwork #imadeyourclothes #consciousfashion #livingwage #transparency #qualityoverquantity #slowfashion #sustainable #sustainableliving #shopsmall #marketing #girlboss #tuesday ⠀⠀
