FAIRTRADE FRIDAY: LITTLE BLACK DRESS

Tomorrow is International Women’s Day! We know that two-thirds of the people living in extreme poverty are women and most of the garment workers making our clothes are women. I wanted to celebrate International Women’s Day by sharing a garment that celebrates women and supports women in earning a decent living to work themselves out of poverty.

So I asked one of the most inspiring women in my life (my Mum!) her opinion as to one, iconic item every woman should own. Her response? The little black dress.

Here are some gorgeous ethical versions to suit every lady and occasion – People Tree in particular have some great options this season:
