#22 Bav Tailor– BAV TAILOR – All you need to know about Conscious Luxury and the importance of Sustainability in Fashion
My guest on the Podcast today is someone very Special, Bav Tailor, one of the most inspiring personality I have ever met during my Fashion Weeks reportages for the podcast in Italy. We are sharing on 2Goodmedia the same vision about the Future of Society and the importance of Sustainability in Fashion.
Who is Bav Tailor ?
Bav is a Young English Designer born in London who has defined a new important concept of sustainable Fashion : Conscious Luxury.
It is not a time for criticizing. The importance in Sustainability is that everyone startsBav Tailor
A family tradition of Luxury Craftsmanship in India
Bav Tailor is a Young English Designer born in London, Indian by origin with a long family tradition of Luxury Craftsmanship inherited from her Grandfathers in India. A story so inspiring but it would be a limitation to stop there to explain who Bav Tailor is and where her inspiration comes from. Indeed, my feeling is that her origins is only the beginning of the story of Who Bav Tailor is, a starting point, as she has committed to work in Fashion after her Grandfathers to rise the challenges of Sustainability.
What is Conscious Luxury Sustainable ?
Conscious Luxury is a commitment to Sustainable Fashion and the highest respect for the environment or the people working in the Fashion industry. For Bav Tailor this is an unconditional commitment guiding the strategy for her brand and which is translated in the way she runs her business.
The Label Bav Tailor
The Brand was founded in London back in 2015, and the production is Made in Italy, with the sourcing of sustainable fabrics from around the globe, for this Nomad spirit as Bav likes defining herself.
Bav Tailor has defined a new important concept of sustainable Fashion : Conscious Luxury. A concept reflected in her personality as you will hear in the Podcast and transposed in her young promising sustainable Label BAV TAILOR.
BAV TAILOR proposes a collective fusion of non-conformist clothing of generationless silhouettes and effortless geometrical volumes inspired by design, architecture and Eastern philosophies and wellness certified natural or recycled materials that represent true hallmarks of authentic100% Made in Italy through a ‘360° sustainability manifesto’ which endeavours to support the ‘United Nations Sustainable Development Goals’.
The pieces of the collection are Timeless and available on client order whatever the season or the collection.
Sustainable and quality certifications
The collections of BAV TAiLOR, following the mantra ‘respect your body + your sphere’, are a hymn to the beauty of the world, exhort to show love for space, mind and body. This philosophy is demonstrated by the use of materials certified for sustainability and quality from suppliers according to the following categories: ISO 9001 / Seri.co / Traceability & fashion / GOTS / EU Ecolabel / ICEA / Fiducia Nel tessile / CAN / Color system project / Global recycle standards / Oeko-tex / FSC/Wastemark.
