One of the alchemies of music is that four is the most intimate number.
Perhaps because it echoes the mysterious privacy of the family unit, a string quartet somehow radiates greater intensity than a solo or duet.

What a delight to have Oda Quartet performing at our event on September 10th!

We are beyond delighted to have Katherine Barkman: Onstage performing at our fashion show on Sept 10th, at the Six Summit Gallery.

The link between fashion and dance is by no means a new phenomenon. The clothing is like a partner for the dancer and allows for unique and interesting shapes to be created, while also adding emphasis to the emotion and mood of that image.

Regarded as one of the rising stars and role models of her generation, Katherine Barkman has been widely praised for her impeccable technique, effortless buoyancy, remarkable balances, and the creative passion which she munificently infuses into every role she portrays onstage.

She is frequently described as a “thinking ballerina” because of her natural curiosity and thoughtful attention to details. She examines her characters deeply and finds ways to connect with them from a different perspective, enabling her to offer a fresh take on her ballet characters – including those that have been performed for centuries.

In April 2019, David Hachfeld of the Swiss NGO Public Eye, along with a team of researchers and the Clean Clothes Campaign, embarked on a huge project.

How much of the hoodie's average retail price, €26.66 (£22.70), went into Zara's pockets. It was an appropriate choice because the idea was to determine whether any respect had been paid to the workers involved in the garment's production.

It took several people six months, involved:
* Badgering Zara's parent company, Inditex, over email.
* Slowly getting limited information in return.
* Interviewing dozens of sources on the ground in Izmir, Turkey, where the garment was made.
* an estimated €10.26 – went back into Zara
* The next biggest slice, after VAT at €4.44, was profit for Inditex/Zara, at €4.20.

Their research suggested that the textile factory in Izmir received just €1.53 for cutting the material, sewing, packing and attaching the labels, with €1.10 of that being paid to the garment workers for the 30-minute job of putting the hoodie together. The report concluded that workers could not have received anything like a living wage, which the Clean Clothes Campaign defined when the report was released, as a gross hourly wage of €6.19.

What Makes A Fashion Brand Ethical?

Do you know how to check if a brand is truly sustainable?
#sustainablefashion

For a brand that calls itself sustainable, there is controversy over the frequent use of the concept in fashion, as it is often interchangeable with labels such as "slow" or "sustainable" fashion, which is an oxymoron. Clothes Are Made From Ethical Materials Many brands produce cheap disposable fash...

NYC Sustainable Fashion aim is to become home to the best brands in their class - above all in design and sustainability, just like @nyc.patrizia , who juxtaposes everyday objects, otherwise considered trash, with precious metals, pearls and stones to create handcrafted jewelry. 🦪

Patrizia's jewelry brand, though small, is world-renowned. You may have seen her work on fashion runways, museums, or on the pages of leading fashion magazines. @voguemagazine described it as "expressions of imagination, halfway between jewelry and art".

Head over to her new Instagram account and see more of her new collection @nyc.patrizia.

We love preloved! In fact, we’d go so far as to say used clothes are the best clothes, which is why we always encourage checking thrift or consignment websites before buying new ones.

What Being Sustainable Actually Means?

The definition of sustainable helps us to articulate and understand where we stand and where our natural resources are limited.

The earth will suffer without green and environmentally friendly products and practices, and without sustainable activities, we will run out of resources.

We're faced with new environmental challenges every single day. But there are steps towards solving the climate crisis, and there are ways we can all help.

We just need to start listening and taking action.
We have to face the fact that each of us has a lot of cleaning up to do, but there's still hope.

Fashion Industry failing to meet sustainable targets!

A 2019 study by the UN Alliance for Sustainable Fashion found that fashion was the second-biggest consumer of water, and responsible for eight-to-10 percent of global carbon emissions—"more than all international flights and maritime shipping combined".

"Environmental sustainability is bigger than any one brand, supplier or retailer. We all have to work together," wrote another of the authors, Edwin Keh, of the Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Appar
