Marzipants wins "highly commended" at the Ethical Fashion Awards!

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to find myself at the Ethical Fashion Awards in London & I'm absolutely over the moon to announce that we were awarded the "highly commended" prize in The One To Watch category. Even to be shortlisted in an awards that "recognises fashion industry leaders in both fashion business & sustainability terms" was a huge honour.  To see Marzipants alongside names such as Vivienne Westwood, Lily Cole & Katharine Hammnett was a dream come true. It was less than a year ago that I was playing around with cardboard cutouts of my trousers & planning my trip to India.  We've come a long, long way in under a year & it's been a huge learning curve and I'm so excited about what the next year has in store for me & Marzipants. I'd like to say a huge thank you to the Ethical Fashion Forum for their continued support & for spurring me on to do bigger & better things next year.  Here's a list of all the ethical fashion winners & nominees.
