London Fashion Week: Amisha Ghadiali

London Fashion Week is now officially underway and Estethica has opened it doors at Somerset House for yet another promising exhibition of sustainable and ethical fashion. I wanted to take a quiet moment to celebrate a London-based designer who works incredibly hard to make ethical fashion a shared phenomenon.

Amisha Ghadliali, founder and designer of Amisha Jewellry, is a force on multiple fronts - 'elegance and rebellion' are part of her company's tagline. Her exquisitely handcrafted and responsibly-sourced jewellry designs are timeless in their visual appeal and purely covetable in their chic simplicity.

Amisha feels that sustainability within fashion is a necessity and predicts that it is something that will be incorporated into all design in the future. She has already demonstrated her passions on this front by playing a significant role in the production of The RE:Fashion Awards of 2008, the world’s first awards ceremony to celebrate improving social and environmental standards in the fashion industry. Following this Amisha took on a role as a Project Manager for the Ethical Fashion Forum (EFF), where she is now Associate Director.

I really think that Amisha represents the best of the new fashion week spirit, with a personal goal to craft beautiful designs while also reaching out to create lasting change from behind the scenes. I send her my warmest congratulations on the showing of her gorgeous collection at The Hospital Club in London in conjunction with EFF this next week.
