Welcome to the #EthicalWardrobe challenge. We want to prove that by building an ethical wardrobe you don’t have to compromise on style. So, over the next few weeks, we will be inviting women who inspire us to take over KeiSei’s Style Edit and create 3 ethical outfits.
In our previous editions we introduce you to Lydia and Emma, both with very different styles but one thing in common, their outfits matched their values. For our third #EthicalWardrobe challenge, we are very excited to welcome Besma, better known by Curiously Conscious on IG.
Besma writes her own sustainable fashion and lifestyle blog, Curiously Conscious, and she is also the founder behind Ethical Influencers, a digital community of 700+ people promoting sustainability, ethics, social justice, and more. Besma is fully committed to living sustainably, and we love the way she uses her platforms to amplify her message, that’s why we are very honoured to have her as our guest today.
We asked Besma…
What does ethical fashion mean to you?
For me, ethical fashion covers four things:
Social sustainability: clear explanation of who makes a brand’s clothes, and how they are treating people ethically, with respect and fair pay.
Environmental sustainability: a line that uses natural and regenerated materials, and any efforts in reducing energy and water use, as well as avoiding harmful chemicals.
Slowing down production: reducing the amount of clothing the brand produces each year.
Circular practices: inviting customers to return garments, which go back into production within the brand, rather than to landfill.

Floral Embroidered Blouse & Recycled Denim Jeans
I’m a self-confessed denim lover, and I have three pairs of sustainable jeans that I cherish – these recycled denim jeans from Sezane, my high-waisted dark blue Nudie Jeans, and my wide-leg raw-hem blue jeans from Boyish Jeans.

Besma’s Look 3
I picked up a beautiful pair of Aquascutum cream trousers last year from an Oxfam Charity Shop, and I’m now looking for a matching overshirt to pair with them and one of my many white tees.
This one from Henri London is on my wishlist right now, and will go so well with my consciously-made gold hoop earrings from Monarc Jewellery.
