Eco-fashion e-tailer Think Boutique has launched a new collection of clothes and accessories for summer 2013. Featuring some of the UK’s best ethical designers – from Eco Boutique and Nancy D to Uncommonly Beautiful – the collection takes inspiration from vintage styles, bold colours and cool prints, and includes coats, dresses, shorts and tops as well as funky luminous jewellery and colourful satchels.
Based in Glasgow, Think Boutique aims to sell affordable clothing and accessories with the highest possible social and environmental credentials. Products are from fair trade, organic, sustainable, up-cycled or locally produced sources with an emphasis on UK manufacturing.
The online outlet won ‘Best Independent Boutique’ at last year’s Ethical Fashion Forum Source Awards, just two years after its launch in 2010 by eco-fashion enthusiast Victoria McQuillan. McQuillan was inspired by a passionate lecture on ethical fashion while studying for her Masters in Fashion Marketing and puts her own style and values into each piece.
If you live in or are visiting Glasgow during June, you can head along to the city’s vibrant West End Festival to check out some of the pieces before you buy; Think Boutique is running a pop-up shop at the festival in collaboration with a sustainable/ethical art and lifestyle retailer.
