Anne and I are meeting with Alex Hume from online store Ecofashionista today. We're very much looking forward to it. We've already met with Emily from Cylk and Yoganic and hope to meet another eco-designer Tiffany Treloar after the trade fair.
These coffee meetings are more of a networking thing - Anne and I don't know that many people in the world of green fashion - these people have been kind enough to spare some time to talk to us about their experience. It's given us greater knowledge as we take the plunge with our business and also a real sense of community.
I really do feel like we're part of a bigger group and it's been a great adventure finding out about like-minded people and organisations. Working out where you fit in the world is something most people want in life and the world of eco-fashion is where it is for us.
