Bardazzi Jersey received the 303 Tuscans Ethical Fashion award in Paris

The company was set up by Alberto Bardazzi in 1983 : its first name was Alberto Bardazzi Maglia and its target group the small “pronto-moda” (ready-to-wear fashion) of Prato . The idea of producing knitted fabrics placed the company in a niche market segment, where Alberto was able to express his talent. The products made in those years are milestones in the history of fabrics and it is no coincidence that they are exhibited at the Prato Textile Museum. They had a great impact on fashion and this led Alberto to change from being a sole proprietor to a limited liability company. In the following years he moved the headquarters twice in order to find a larger space while at the same time the turnover and the number of employees were increasing. In 2001 the financial newspaper “il Sole 24 ore” listed the Alberto Bardazzi S.r.L. as one of the best 500 companies in Italy and this was the most exciting period for Alberto’s professional career. In 2003 while doing new ambitious projects, Alberto died prematurely of a disease that did not take away his desire to work and to impress. It seemed the end, but it was a new starting point because the Bardazzi family was strong enough to draw motivation and stimuli to carry on with the company. Today it is run by a sound and experienced group of people and it is proud of having sales relationships all over the world.

What is the future of fashion? We will buy less and better quality

Aggressive fashion - Those were the words Mary Sue used to describe her vision for the Ashbury Skies website. My heart started beating and shouting YES! Here is the thing- safe, tasteful, fashion is beautiful and it serves a roll in a complete wardrobe. But it’s not what makes your heart beat. Bold, standout fashion- that gets us excited. We had both worked for major retailers and have made lasting connections that helped us make our vision a reality- a collection that keeps fashion fun. If you’d like safe & practical, go to a department store or some other mega online retailer. If you want to smile every time you open your closet doors, then AshburySkies is your new favorite spot online.

8 shocking facts that show how unethical fast fashion companies are ruining the fashion industry

The fashion world is changing. The old fashion model is reshaping inevitably from slow to fast fashion. And although the slow fashion model has many disadvantages (about 18 months pass from the design of a garment to its production), many fast fashion companies have a negative effect on the fashion industry. In fact, the problem is not that fashion is becoming fast, but that there are many unethical practices involved.

Fashion is about disrupting and advancing the understandings of style and beauty. Because of these things, there is infinite room for more voices in the discussion over all things fashion.

Ways To Put A Stop To Boredom And Keep Your Mind Active

Keeping your mind active and avoiding boredom stops you from sitting and stagnating. Boredom can kill creativity and drive, so it's best to avoid situations whereby you have nothing to do. Quite simply, to keep your mind active, you should look for activities you enjoy. If you're often bored on your train journey home, then think about downloading some stimulating apps or games onto your phone. If this doesn't appeal to you, then consider keeping a book of word searches or Sudoku puzzles to complete. Avoiding boredom isn't easy if you've grown accustomed to it, so shake things up now and begin combating boredom and periods of inactivity, both mental and physical ones.

As each stop is made, the elements of the journey are laid out one by one and the passenger is treated to moments of closer observation and reflection. The destination that becomes clearer as it appears along the horizon. The Spring Summer 2018 collection is an homage to the man who is constantly on the move, whether for business or pleasure – or for business and pleasure – and to the continuous discovery that his journeys bring.
