5 Sustainable Fashion Shops For All Brighton Girls
As we believe in a sustainable future for fashion and we live in a city that offers many great slow fashion shopping options, we decided to comply a list of sustainable ethical fashion brands in Brighton. Not only do they manufacture their products ethically, but also have the cutest designs!
Lucy & Yak came to life on travels all over the world and is now based in the UK! Lucy & Yak sell dungarees, shirts and all things cute you can imagine when it comes to cosy workwear!
They have made it their goal to pay all of their employees living wage, whether they live in the UK or in India, where their clothes are being produced. Their material bags, as well as their mailing bags, are all 100% recycled and can be reused.
Check our their first shop on 101 Gloucester Rd, Brighton BN1 4AP!
Ruby Moon produces swim and gym wear from plastic waste from the ocean, such as fishnets and other regenerated materials. Plus, their products are certified for 42% less carbon emissions!
They don’t use any unnecessary tags, labels and packaging material that’s more than you would need and they never send their products by air to keep the carbon print as small as possible! Check out their swimwear yourself and prepare to be amazed!
Zola Amour produces stylish and timeless products. You’ll find a lot of nice shirts, ponchos and jumpsuits! They’re all being produced in England and are made of organic fabrics.
Their colour scheme is limited to white, black, grey and blue, but everything you need for a stylish and sustainable look!
They also have a shop on 3 Marine Terrace Mews, Brighton BN2 1AR!
Our Brighton Girl Sophie has her own brand for cool leather jackets with custom designs! Request whatever fun slogan you want and she’ll paint your design especially for you, how neat is that? - The perfect gift idea!

The Fair Shop is Brighton's very own sustainable fashion hub based on Queen's Road. They are a boutique stocking a range of sustainable brands whose producers and the planet are at the heart of everything they do. They support organisations working hard to generate a livelihood through the use of traditional craft and skills by either purchasing their products or working with them to create new products perfect for the UK (and FAIR!). Any brands they stock have strong ethical credentials including Fair Trade production and the use of environmentally friendly materials.
