    I wonder what they mean by “ethical fashion label”! Is it in the sourcing of their fabrics? The conditions of service of their tailors and other staff? The fact that they don’t pay bribes to government officials? What exactly do they mean by ethical? Just asking for knowledge’s sake, not hating. And No! I’m not going to buy TW to read about them!

    i think they were trying to say that – These ladies know the basis of fashion . That they have a knowledge of fashion and they also know how to address it from its root. . They mean these ladies know all the right and wrongs to fashion , and how to deal with its issues

    That is what they mean by ETHICAL.

    After writing all that i have written … lol.. please BN do your research. Give honor to honor is due. Try not to use strong words like “Ethical” . words are very important .
    When we talk about people who have a fashion label that deeply understands the basis of fashion…. IT IS NOT Caterina and the other white lady we should mention… am sorry.
