A lot of you often ask where to buy ethical and fair fashion. Therefor I have listed my five favourite online shops based in the Netherlands. Don’t worry, technology is there for you when you think Dutch is a ridiculous language, chrome can always translate the pages of the shops for you. Soon I will share more favourites and of course my favourite international shops as well! But first things first.
1. THE GREEN LABELS
If you’re a cool girl, than you should know The Green Labels! Claudia curates the best brands not only in fashion but also beauty. You can find brands as Rita Row, ARMEDANGELS and many more!

2. TAKE IT SLOW
For once and always, I can clear the air here. Take It Slow and Let’s Talk Slow are not the same thing. I met Laura (owner and founder of Take it Slow) at de Modefabriek the Fashion Fair in The Netherlands a couple of years ago and we started our ethical businesses around the same time, without knowing it from eachother. We now combine forces and Laura has become a true friend. [Yes, we take Barre classes together] Take It Slow is an ethical and fair webshop with a minimalistic and Scandinavian aesthetic. Brands you can find there are Filippa K, Alchemist, Jan ‘N June, Kowtow, Veja, Swedish Stocking and many more.

Recently, I have discovered the online shop Rogue. How they describe themselves? “Rogue is all about handpicked girl power gorgeousness voor de wild and free hearted.” The definition of Rogue is to be wild and free and search for magic in this world. They are big on sustainability and strive towards the best care for our planet. To make things easier for you, they carefully select items from conscious indie brands and sell them through their website. From conscious girlboss jewelry to beautiful crystals and clean beauty to fun prints. All from female companies by powerful boss babes, celebrating and combining our strength and ideals. Check them out Rogue.
