everyday ethical with Komodo

A few weeks ago a brand called Komodo got in touch with me to explain a bit more about what they do and how they do it. I recognised the name as one I’d heard of maybe a year or more ago, but it had kind of drifted off my radar, so I was keen to find out how they had progressed; and indeed, they have progressed.

Komodo uses the most ethical and eco-friendly materials at affordable prices, showing that style and an ethical conscience can go hand-in-hand. They offered to loan me some samples so I could get a proper feel for the brand myself, and have a go at styling them up…except when they arrived, I decided I didn’t want to style them per say; I mean, I’m not a stylist, just a twenty-something year old girl who lives a normal life and wants her clothes to fit in with that. Hence the outfits above…really, nothing different to what I’d usually wear, except this time the clothes are ethical and not my own.

The shift dress was a dream, beautifully cut and not a hint of stiffness in the fabric (something I used to expect from ethical fashions)…and the t-shirt, well, I’m not a t-shirt girl, you know that…but teamed with ASOS velvet shorts just to test out the fit, I was impressed at the quality and attention to detail; not to mention the on trend tribal print; jeans and a tee girls, this one is for you!

The winner here, for me (and sadly the worst photographed) is the trousers. It’s well documented by now, my saga with trousers and it is with a very heavy heart that I’ll be sending these back. I’ve never looked much further than New Look or Topshop for trousers, believing that only well known retailers would cater for my needs…and certainly never thought of looking somewhere that only sold ethical fashions. Komodo I owe you an apology, and a pat on the back…from the super comfy waistband to the exquisite cut of this trousers, as soon as I have the pennies to afford the (not un-affordable) price tag of £65 these will be mine.

A bit of a waffle filled and in-eloquent post from me. But what I am trying to say is check out Komodo , cast aside any preconceived notions of hessian sacks and tie-dye and be prepared to be impressed.
