Gather&See offers carefully curated collections from the very best in sustainable fashion talent from around the world. Showcasing designers that pride themselves on aesthetics as much as their ethics, the website presents sustainable fashion in a fresh and innovative way.
Founded by Alicia Taylor and Stephanie Hogg, 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 3 of Gather&See's 5 founding philosophies: Fair Trade, Organic, Eco-Friendly, Small Scale Production and Heritage. Since its 2014 launch Gather&See has received fantastic support from customers from over 19 countries as well as recognition from the press with the Telegraph naming Gather&See one of the Top 10 Ethical Brands.
In our own words…
“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 were transparent, treated their workers fairly and that 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 so many brilliant ethical designers and to connect with likeminded customers on a daily basis.”
