Ethical evening dress

I have drawn a colorful ethical evening dress I have spotted but meanwhile I have realised that the dress’ brand has shut down. It’s a pity but fortunately there are other ways of finding nice ethical evening dresses:

* You can buy a second-hand dress (the advantage : there is no chance you will wear the same outfit as someone else).

* Some sustainable fashion brands such as People Tree make elegant evening dresses. I can more easily mention French ethical brands: Ethos, Ekyog, L’Herbe Rouge or fashion designer Valentine Gauthier.

* If you can sew, you can make a custom gown.

* The most ecological and economical solution is to borrow an outfit or to reuse an outfit that you already have. Then you can play with some accessories to get a new look. I think that if a need a party outfit, I will first go through my drawers.
