FAUBOURG, pronounced “fo-boor”, is an online shop with a stunning range of responsibly made pieces curated for the conscious fashion lover. The Paris-born founder and her team handpick pieces from top international designers who can answer the all-important question: #whomademyclothes? The edit has a chic, fashion-forward yet timeless vibe. You can shop by category, brand or ethos (e.g., eco-friendly, handmade, organic, fair trade etc.). FAUBOURG sources high quality, versatile pieces that are wearable season after season and transition from day to night. We love their fairly made and planet friendly fashion that really brings aesthetic excitement to sustainability.
Just Fashion believes the world is ready for something different, something not seen in the world of fast or sustainable fashion. They believe fashion still needs to be relevant to the contemporary “trends” of the season, while still being expertly crafted by someone with the creativity to take the “trend” and build on it. Seasonality is good, but the pace at which collections are pushed, out and the quality and vision behind them need to change. Less quantity, local and slower production, updated education, and idea sharing all come into a new vision for fashion. Just Fashion is a leader in this new way forward in fashion. If you have some spare time (even if you don’t!), we encourage you to watch their short video on Lee Edelkoort’s vision of the future of fashion.
RÊVE EN VERT
Founders Cora and Natasha wanted to create a platform of sustainable luxury for those who want to move away from a trend-based wardrobe and towards a more conscious closet. Rêve En Vert was launched in London in 2014 and the criteria for their designers is based on four key categories: organic, re-made, local, and fair. Their carefully curated collections respect people and the planet and it has become a stage to propel those designers working with both aesthetic and ethics equally. And with carbon neutral international shipping of course!
TAKE IT SLOW
A quick note first up, use google chrome when browsing Take It Slow’s website if you’re a little bit worried about trying to read Dutch (right click + translate is one of my best friends!). The key words you want to read are English so you don’t need to worry too much, but just a quick note. Regardless, we love shopping at Take It Slow. They stock beautifully made modern, chic pieces which are carefully sourced for their sustainability and honest production principles. You can shop by category, brand, or material which we think is a great touch. They also provide you with some inspiration if you can’t decide what kind of look you’re going for, and provide some great info and tips on their slow blog!
At The Acey, the founders have created a place for those looking for “style with purpose”; those searching for brands that take care to do the right thing by the environment and their employees. Brands found at The Acey will be those that adhere to their two key principles: innovation and integrity. This means the brands are working to include the most up to date, best practices into their business; both in terms of their environmental impact as well as their commitment to fair labour practices and social projects. On their website you will find contemporary clothing, shoes, accessories, beauty, and more!
THE SLOW MODE
THE SLOW MODE is an online sanctuary of carefully hand-picked fashion, home, and beauty items. A place where you can just take. it. slow. and find consciously designed pieces to suit any taste, all of which are made “slowly”. Items are sourced from responsible, artisanal producers all over the world who create uniquely, slowly, and with good intentions. You will be find natural fibers such as organic cotton, linen, raffia, seagrass, and more from brands that always hold themselves accountable, empower women, and support local traditional craftsmen.

Troo is a lovely online shop that offers carefully selected and beautifully designed, responsible fashion labels.

All the beautiful creations can be shipped right to your door. They believe in a slower, more mindful, and more sustainable life and only pair up with those who share their views.

We here at Mochni are all about the truth and therefore couldn’t agree more with the Troo family´s motto: “Be troo. Live troo. Wear troo”.
