Today its all about this organic hemp silk dress and hemp as a sustainable textile we have started exploring. I loved the way hemp was described by @goodonyou_app as “Marijuana’s ‘sober cousin’”. Blended with silk it was the perfect match to flatter the ruched panels and pleats of the dress. Who better to model it for us than @iamlauramadden featured in AGAATI’s upcoming trailblazer series! Dress available on AGAATI.COM Learn more about Organic Hemp as shared by @goodonyou_app “…it’s used as a food, a building material, in cosmetics, and it has been cultivated and used for hundreds of years as a fabric. The great thing about hemp is that it’s grown all around the world and it requires very little water, no pesticides, and naturally fertilises the soil it grows in – making it much better for the environment than other crops. One of the oldest fibres in the world, hemp helps keep you warm in winter and cool in summer, and gets softer the more you wash it. For all these reasons, we also consider hemp one of the most sustainable fabrics out there. #hempsilkdress #greendress #instashopping #ootd #sustainabletextiles #onlineshopping #consciousdesign

Spencer Phipps (@phipps.international)
In his final year of studying at Parsons School of Design in New York City, Spencer Phipps was nominated as “designer of the year” for his senior year collection. After some experience as part of the menswear design team at Marc Jacob, Phipps dedicated his ideas to founding his own brand, Phipps International, where his designs for comfortable menswear not only make mobility and styling easy but also reject old and harmful habits of fashion production that negatively affect the environment. Embracing his love for nature and Northern California roots, Phipps International takes everything from denim to outerwear as a profound reflection of Phipps’ mission to change the world fashion for the better.
