LA Team | Get to Know Nafisa

Hi everyone, my name is Nafisa and I'm from Chicago. My biggest passions are fashion (preferably ethical), photography and feminism! I adore my city, take way too many pictures and love putting together fashion DIYs (and messing up on them too). I recently joined Loyale as a brand ambassador and wanted to share a little bit about why I started the Simply Sustainable blog

For most people, finding a cute, $5 shirt is a shopping victory even though it won’t be in style next month. The cost of that inexpensive shirt doesn’t reflect the social and environmental consequences on the global community. Fast fashion is known for cheaply made clothes based on trends and generally they go out of style or fall apart; it has negative effects on women, children, and the environment. These companies look for cheap sources of labor in developing countries that employ women and children, who often work in unsanitary and dangerous conditions, and are paid less than $3 a day. Fast fashion is also extremely dangerous to our planet; countries where cotton is produced, such as China and India are already facing water shortages and grappling with severe pollution problems.  

As someone who is interested in fashion and style, this issue is particularly important to me. I don’t want to live in a world where my passion for style conflicts with my morals. Still, it is extremely expensive, especially for a high school student at my age, to shop with ethical fashion brands. This is how Simply Sustainable was born. The purpose of my blog is to raise awareness about fast fashion and protest shopping with unethical fashion brands while being cost conscious. Stay tuned by following me on Instagram!
