Q&A Simple Sustainability: Practical Advice From An Ethical Fashion Advocate

JULY 30, 2019

Whether you've been into sustainable fashion for years or you've just been introduced to it, the notion can feel daunting. How does one avoid this feeling? Talk about it! Through shared advice, tips, and tricks, the concept of sustainability becomes both digestible and obtainable. 

In the spirit of knowledge being power, GALERIE.LA asked Darya Gruzdeva, an ethical apparel advocate and vegan activist, her advice on sustainable fashion. 

What was the best piece of fashion advice you've ever received?

Buy mostly quality and timeless pieces, which would last for a lifetime. 

What are your top two picks from GALERIE.LA's new arrivals?

Without a second thought, the "Fiona Bag" in mustard and the "Maisie Shorts." I'm so into pick-nick shorts and dresses lately!

What's your go-to outfit? 

My go-to outfit is an oversized shirt, paired with vintage jeans, comfy sneakers and my sustainable Pala sunglasses.

What does being sustainable mean to you?

Being sustainable means being more mindful about your choices and their total impact on the environment.

What tips would you give to someone trying to achieve a more sustainable life?

I think it's really impactful to educate ourselves on these topics first, so we don't get green-washed.
