Wywnood has the Antidote (yup, pun intentions) to fast fashion. Freshly minted Antitode boutique just opened in the art-loving ‘hood and the boutique is brimming with eco-conscious clothing brands.
“We are more than just a store; we are conscious fashion. Every piece is unique and has a distinct story from its inspiration to the way it was brought to life. We are excited to share our story,” Antidote Founder Sophie Zembra says.
So what can shoppers expect, exactly? Think Cienna banded-bottom pants, Lemlem gauzy frocks, Edun wide-leg pants, Sarah’s Bag pill clutches and more. Many pieces in this thoughtfully made curation utilize recycled fabrics, vegan leather and champion fair trade practices. Shoppers can sift through accessories, shoes and ready-to-wear clothing ranging from $150 to $2,000.
For example, the brand Lemlem, founded by Liya Kebede, creates Ethiopian hand-woven cotton scarves, women’s clothing and children’s dresses made by traditional artisans in Liya’s native Ethiopia. Her focus is singular and strong: to empower women through ethical fashion.
Personally, I am 100% on board with this ethos. Because… hooray for the ethical treatment of fashion!
