Less Choice Might Not Be Such A Bad Thing
I don’t know about you, but my eating habits have definitely changed during lockdown. Availability and acceptance, of course, play a huge part in this, but let’s be honest, food is the biggest excitement. It’s a frequently visited topic of conversation in the house and the greatest joy.  Let’s momentarily glance back to pre-lockdown behaviour. We had become complacent. We could nip to the supermarket (now a major operation) or take an online shop to checkout in under half an hour (and have it delivered the next day, would you believe?).

Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Sleep Hacks: ways to wind-down
Whether you struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or even waking up, there’s something here that might make all the difference to your night time routine. Everyone’s mind and body works differently, but the science behind it is all the same. There are just some specific things that really don’t promote a healthy sleep and some that really do. With a little bit of patience and knowledge, you may figure out where you’re going wrong before bed… That conventional cup of caffeine, I mean tea, before bed? Could be the worst decision you make.

Why you need to Marie Kondo your life
Whilst we continue to spend time in isolation, the more we notice around us. You pick up on messy things you may not have noticed until you spend every working day sat in front that hideous, overcrowded bookcase (the one you throw all your clutter onto). With spring creeping towards and more time on our hands, there’s no better time than now to release your inner Marie Kondo and cleanse every inch of your life.

Important Life Factors
There’s never not a ‘right’ time to learn these 7 key factors of life. When you feel like you’re on top of the world or when you’re at the lowest of lows, acknowledging the 7 factors of wellness and understanding how to utilise their purpose to your personal life, will easily enhance the great times and allow you to pick up from the bad ones.   Each factor is just as important than the other, but some will be more relevant and more important in our day to day lives. There’s nowhere to say you have to be perfect at all 7, it’s just a guideline on how to live a healthy, happy and mindful lifestyle.

Sustainability at LFW with Elle L

London Fashion Week AW20 proved to be a big moment for positive fashion, growing one step closer to supporting a more sustainable industry. Our sustainability ambassador – music artist and advisor to UN EnvironmentElle L was on hand to provide her highlights for Cohorted.

This season, I teamed up with Cohorted to champion designers pioneering a more sustainable future for fashion. Vin + Omi. really embrace this concept and their show is never formulaic – it’s always full of surprises. Over the past year, they have been working with Prince Charles to repurpose nettles from Highgrove and upcycle them into collections. Collaborating with Olympians and real role models, their latest offering to London Fashion Week was show RESIST at The Savoy. The show incorporated recycled wigs, a playful take on resisting temptation with a key longstanding messages ‘Don’t f*ck the planet’. 

The BFC were also in support of sustainability, notably with Patrick McDowell x Swarovski x Global Fashion Exchange‘s Swap Shop, You could drop in to the 180 The Strand to swap a pre-loved piece of your wardrobe and even embellish them with sustainably sourced Swarovski crystals. Patrick was supporting United Nations‘ 17 SDGs with a Swarovski emblem pin of the UN colour wheel, which he had made into a bracelet. Beyond just wearing this statement in support, he is embracing and applying these goals into his work. Patrick shared with me his personal favourite – Goal 4: Inclusive and equitable quality education, which he believes is fundamental to achieving a sustainable future.

Alongside Cohorted, I collaborated with DJ Lara Fraser and alcohol-free, plant botanical, mood-enhancing drinks from Senser Spirits, who provided us with the perfect sustainably sourced cocktails for us to enjoy between shows.

Fashion Revolution lead the way when it comes to discussing transparency and change with the industry. Their campaigns such as ‘Who Made My Clothes’, have gone viral and ask us to think about where are clothes come from, so we can reconnect with what we own and respect the supply chain and people that create what’s in our wardrobe. Orsola De Castro hosted an interactive workshop and panel at the BFC show space. Orsola  urged and encouraged us to think of re-wearing and continuing to love and re-use what’s already in our wardrobe – “I’m your rubbish, love me. With a creative intervention, what we own is valuable” – the message, if an item is old, restyle it, if it’s broke, fix it.

Last but not least, Amy Powney, creative director for Mother of Pearl launched a social media campaign collaboration with John Lewis ‘Fashion Our Future’, which encourages everyone to make a pledge big or small to become more suitable and unites voices of change to come together and embrace. You can get involved by taking a selfie and pledging your version of change online @fashionourfuture #fashionourfuture

The narrative for sustainability is evolving and we all can play a part by reconnecting ourselves to our choices.
