This collaboration is really special to me. It’s not just a collaboration between a luxury brand with beautiful beliefs, it’s also a collaboration between my husband and I, combining two of our passions: photography and fashion. That’s why I’m really excited to share this post about an emerging, sustainable London-based brand, We-Resonate with photographs by my Clément Duliege, shot in Lombok , Indonesia.
We-Resonate is an elegant & sustainable alternative to commercial fashion, a kinder approach to celebrating luxury & individuality. Each Ready-to-Wear piece is the only one of its kind, crafted out of rare, vintage silks that were hand selected & quality screened by the Creative Director herself, Lizzie Clark. This makes each of their pieces truly artisanal and kind towards our environment.
We-Resonate’s sustainability lies in their ‘Triple Sustainable’ stance. Purchasing from We-Resonate helps to reduce the production of new materials, reduce textile waste, as well as nourishing a small business that supports a fair-work place.
They bypass the fabric making, dying, etc. processes (along with the social & environmental issues that come with them) by ethically sourcing existing silk fabrics. Each fabric is selected for their colour compositions & artistic prints and created by their small, fairly paid team of seamstresses.
I love seeing women in business. From pioneering the trends that celebrate the freedom of femininity, to creating them, our gender has come a long way in our quest for gender equality; our foremothers of the 1920s would be so proud.
“I feel like I’m breaking stereotypes, and that I’m able to make a small but sure difference to the world through my creations.”
We-Resonate launches in March this year and will feature Lizzie’s first collection, only available online. Her beliefs in consciously made fashion, is reflected in her brand. “We are doing things efficiently and mindfully to ensure we build a well grounded brand.”
While her first collection this March, will feature an array of elegant silk print dresses and tops, Lizzie is already planning We-Resonate’s next steps for the future, particularly for the colder seasons, to include sustainable wool and other vintage fabrics as well.
