Ethical fashion – Is the way clothing is produced. The factories, employee treatment, employee pay and all around the environment in which your clothes are produced.
Adorn Me Africa is more than just another multi-brand aggregate, we care about the impact on the creative economy, the impact to the communities of the brands that we work with. It isn't just about beautiful garments.
The hands that craft your clothing matter, how they are treated matter, how much they are paid matter and the conditions in which they work matter. We care about all aspects of the process. That is why we aim to work with brands that care and have these values as well.
Sustainable fashion - How the making of your clothing impacts the environment.
Supporting "slow fashion" and not just buying but investing in high quality pieces that are made intentionally to last for years, rather than pieces that are made for a few wears. Buying directly from brands that are mindfully creating in limited quantities is a very important part of why we partner with independent brands and makers rather than foreign clothing manufacturing operations.
We don't buy based on changing fashion trends instead we look for pieces that can serve as timeless staple pieces that can remain in your wardrobe for years to come.
