Just in time to ring in 2021, the team behind the Ibiza Fashion Festival is introducing a fresh new digital presence. Under the name Ibiza Fashion, White Isle lovers will find an online hub housing the brand’s debut winter sun collection, information on the annual event and a consultancy specialising in sustainability matters within the fashion industry.
While the Ibiza Fashion Festival remains on hold due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the resulting travel and safety restrictions, the online portal allows visitors to browse a carefully curated collection of sustainable designer swimwear and accessories. Selected by renowned stylist, Karen Windle, Winter 20/21 collaborators include Medina Swimwear, Virginia Macari, Oceanus Swimwear, Caroline Azzi, Plustic Lab and Esprit Eyewear.
Sustainability remains a big topic on the island, and so the online store is championing designs made from recycled plastic and ‘circular fabrics’ like ECONYL® regenerated nylon. Introduced in 2011 by Aquafil, it is made entirely from ocean and landfill waste, such as industrial plastic, fabric scraps from clothing manufacturing companies, old carpets and ‘ghost nets’ (lost or abandoned fishing nets).
Discerning fashionistas will love shopping safe in the knowledge that purchases like the limited edition Plustic Lab Coral Reef Earrings, or the minimalistic white Vendetta one-piece by Medina Swimwear Portugal, are made from 100% recycled ocean plastic. Furthermore, Ibiza Fashion continues to support environmental initiatives including Plastic Free Ibiza and the iBi Foundation.
Brands who want to implement sustainability practices into their own business can get in touch with the Ibiza Fashion Consultancy for strategic counsel regarding sustainable production methods and ethical working practices. As we all learn to adapt to the ‘new normal’, the Ibiza Fashion team is helping to steer shoppers and brands alike towards a brighter future with their forward-thinking new online portal.
