Slow Fashion Brands To Watch In 2022

One of our favorite new slow fashion brands is Beatrice Bayliss, founded by Emily-Jane Bayliss. This sustainably focused slow fashion clothing brand is quickly gaining fans around the world.

Emily is a recent grad of the London College of Fashion and her sustainable fashion start-up is gaining more and more well-deserved attention.

The idea behind the  brand is to bring sustainable and comfortable clothing to customers at an affordable price without compromising on style. 

We recently chatted with Emily about her burgeoning brand and she shared her origin story. Listen up!

“Beatrice  Bayliss was born from my own frustration when trying to purchase more genuinely sustainable clothing on a student budget.  Many brands within my price range were either not sustainable or said they were and then when you delved into the brand it  wasn't the case. So after finishing university from London College of Fashion I decided to launch a genuinely sustainable brand  which our customers could trust and didn't cost them the earth.”

Beatrice Bayliss is primarily an eCom business but they also participate in popups across London. Fun!

In addition, they are stocked worldwide, including ourCommonplace in New York, Less & Conscious in Europe and more recently Wolf & Badger in London who we will be stocking with in the next few months.

Emily is an active member of the sustainable fashion community and she shared her likes, dislikes and insights into the industry with us.

One key aspect of this is that their production system is virtuallly “waterless” and that means that each pair of denim jeans uses just 10 gallons of water to produce, an incredible saving over the 1,500 gallons of water used by the fast fashion industry.
