The Conscious Exclusive Collection is set to launch on April 7 both online and in 180 stores worldwide and it’s bringing something old, something new and something borrowed to the market.
Affordable, sustainable, wedding dresses.
The collection offers three dresses that are being considered the standout features of the collection.
The dresses, they say, are for the brides who aim to be as beautifully dressed as they are ethically conscious.
The dresses are made from a mixture of organic and recycled fabrics. Materials include: organic silk, help, recycled linen, Tencel® blends, recycled glass and Denimite – a material made from recycled denim that H&M say they’re the first to use.
The ethical ease behind the garments doesn’t just stop at the materials, either. H&M has continuously pushed its strict enforcement of employment policies to ensure any instances of child labour are reported and removed.
Creative Advisor at H&M, Ann-Sofie Johansson says the collection is a “layering of references, shapes and textures” that offers consumers a collection of garments that are as pioneering in their sustainability as they are in their aesthetic.
The dresses themselves are described to have ‘dreamy, draped lines’ – the kind of wording that takes you out from the shop floor and into the meadow.
H&M entered the Australian market in 2014 with the golden goose of fashion: quality garments at an affordable price.
Hopefully this new collection will once again push the Australian market to evolve into something better – into believing that beauty, is always sustainable.
