Thanks for visiting The Fashion Novelist!
About the Blog
Despite the name, The Fashion Novelist is not just about fashion. When I began this blog, I was a fashion design student at The Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. In the beginning I published articles that were centered around designer interviews, runway news, photoshoots, etc. But as I advanced in my studies, I was in constant contact with the colossal wastefulness of the fashion industry. It depressed me greatly and began to turn me against fashion - something I had dedicated my whole life to. Something I loved. But I couldn’t condone the actions of corporate and fast-fashion brands, so I decided to cut them out of my life completely.
I needed to do something; something that could help people come together to fight for better sustainable practices in big business. I wanted to create a community of badass ethically motivated people that shared my passion for the conservation of our planet and the livelihood of our people.
This is the story of how The Fashion Novelist was rebranded into a blog that is not just about fashion. It is about social justice – the power of protest, green living and environmental awareness, and yes, sustainable/ethically sourced fashion.
Besides that there's only a few things to know about me. I'm a devoted cat mom, I'm obsessed with yellow, and I love succulents - my apartment is full of succulents - I even love the word "succulent."
Everything that I write, review, or promote is based on my own personal opinion or experience. I do not promote companies that I have not purchased from or have thoroughly researched and declared a good option for conscious consumers. My main goal is to encourage a more politically active and sustainable lifestyle. I hope the content I provide here will make that a little bit easier for everyone.
To sum up, thank you for being part of The Fashion Novelist Community. Whether you have already committed to a sustainable lifestyle or are just taking your first steps, I am very happy for you and I hope this is a journey we will be able to take together.
