Gather&See is an award-winning online ethical fashion retailer. Launched in 2014 by Alicia Taylor and Stephanie Hogg, Gather&See offers a curated selection of cutting edge sustainable fashion labels to a fashion-savvy, ethically minded customer.
Gather&See was born out of a desire to find beautiful, stylish ethical fashion brands that protect people and planet and don’t compromise on style. Frustrated by what was currently available, the pair began to gather a selection of like-minded, forward-thinking designers all of which fit into at least 2 of Gather&See's 6 Philosophies:
SMALL SCALE PRODUCTION
Customers can shop by each Philosophy, just as they can shop by Product or by Designer. We work closely with each of our brands to bring you as much information as possible about the origins of each item so that you can make an informed choice based around the values that matter to you most as an individual.
We work in partnership with our brands to act as a conduit between them and our customer. The majority of our products are shipped directly from our brands to save on air miles and in order to simplify supply chains.
“As a pair of fashion lovers who have shopped endlessly from department stores to high streets, markets to charity shops we started to think about how disconnected we are from the production process behind the clothes that we were buying. We were becoming more and more dubious about how our products could be made so cheaply and travels to Africa, South America and India in our early twenties had opened our eyes to both amazing traditional craftsmanship but also extreme poverty and exploitation.
We felt that there had to be a better alternative. We wanted to find brands that were transparent, treated their workers fairly and safeguarded the amazing craftsmanship we had seen around the world. And so we arrived at our vision for Gather&See. Fast forward several years and we are honoured to work with so many brilliant ethical designers and to connect with like-minded customers on a daily basis.”
